    My Brother has the same problem, hes had this prob for quite a while, he just watches the missing channels on analogue, a real pain if you ask me.

    I wonder if it will improve when analogue is switched off?

    Plug your postcode into http://www.dtg.org.uk/retailer/coverage.html and it will tell you what channels you might expect to be receiving. You may also need a wide band aerial upgrade if you haven't already got one.

    Shugg,

    The problem is called 'Richmond Hill'. You will be receiving pictures from Crystal Palace which if you are on the wrong side of Richmond Hill to Crystal Palace, you wont get a good signal. Check with an aerial shop around there.

    I'm in Twickenham which isn't too bad, but I still feel it could be better.

    Richie.

    Ouch that hurts ! Still, I'm not paying over the odds to live in Richmond in suppose that's because I moved out from Richmond to better pastures !
