Took me ages top find a bloody new story for this, I thought it would be bigger News lol:
Originally Posted By: BBC News
The town of Whitehaven in Cumbria has become the first place in the UK to undergo the official switchover from analogue to digital TV.

BBC Two's signal was switched off at 0200 BST on Wednesday, with digital channels replacing it shortly after. The other signals will go from 14 November, when 25,000 households will need Freeview, satellite, cable or broadband in order to watch television.

Analogue TV will be switched off in the rest of the UK by the end of 2012.

Any local residents who stayed up to watch the switchover would have been watching BBC Two's Learning Zone before the screen went blank. Engineers spent 37 minutes switching off the analogue signal on BBC Two and switching on digital versions of BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Three, CBBC, BBC News 24 and Five.

Other digital channels will follow when analogue BBC One, ITV1 and Channel 4 are switched off next month.

So its started, anyone not yet gone digital? Anyone got any concerns?

Click here to view a News report, local feedback and the actual switch-off itself.

Our television region (Granada) is scheduled to go digital in 2009 so we have a quite while longer before the changeover.

What transmitter are you pulling the signal from? You tried another one at all?

I think in cases like your's, the government should pay for you to have something like Freesat From Sky installed if they want you to go digital...

Its not the best solution to your problem, iirc you use a IDTV dont ya, but its a start.

Intergrated Digital TV.

Winter Hill is just the main transmitter (a 1000ft pole in the air iirc lol), which relay is your ariel pointing towards, it probably will be storeton, but ye never know. Sometimes an alternative can boost signals that arnt very good on your main local transmitter.

Iirc multiplexes 2 and A are really shit because they are low power transmissions, and unfortunatly channels like Channel 4, ITV, five and associated channels are all carried over these two multiplexes, so people always have problems getting them clear. The reason for this is because they are the NGW (formerly Crown Castle) multiplexes and they try and cram in as many channels as they can, so they use 64QAM feeds instead of the 16QAM feeds that the other multiplexes used by the likes of the BBC and Sky.

No, I dont have IDTV, I have a HD LCD, but it has an analogue tuner. it will have V+ running through the hdmi soon though. so that will be my digital sorted.
