    Anyone else experienced the following?

    I entered my postcode into http://www.freeview.co.uk/ and was told "Sorry, no reception".

    Then I entered it into http://www.dtg.org.uk/retailer/coverage.html which told me that I could receive some, but not all channels. However, a postcode next door to mine could receive the lot...

    Tonight I experimented with a borrowed Grundig STB and, voila, all channels! OK, I probably could do with an aerial upgrade, but in principle. not a problem.

    The moral of the story? Don't take what the websites say as the gospel truth and, if at all possible, try it out for yourself with a borrowed or easily returnable box.

    Happy viewing!
    Joel
