Hardly a Wednesday from today until Wednesday 23rd November 2011 will not involve a step in the UK digital switchover.

From today. You will need to retune your Freeview box if you use the Sandy Heath or Nottingham transmitter. You MAY find that old equipment will no longer work - TVs and boxes that do not support the 8k-mode.

If you use the Dallington Park, Kimpton or Luton relay transmitters, you will no longer be able to watch BBC TWO on analogue from today, but you should be able now to use a Freeview box to watch ALL BBC services (apart from the two HD channels).

If you use Sandy Heath don't forget that you will need use a wideband aerial after switchover is complete on Wednesday, 13th April 2011 if you want to watch the commercial multiplexes. Sandy Heath is unusual in this respect.

Leesa: if you retuned before 6am, they may not have finished getting everything in its final configuration. Try retuning again.

Otherwise, we really need a full postcode to see what you should expect to receive.

lee: You can compare the frequencies you are receiving services on (if your box or TV will tell you) with those in use by the transmitter.

Or, you can look at the direction your aerial points.
