Sudbury (Suffolk, England) Full Freeview transmitter

IP1 6RL, Chimney aerial installed around 4 years ago in readiness for C/O.
Have 4 year old Panasonic flat screen TV with Analogue plus DVB facilities. Occasional lockups on ITV, ch 4 and 5 on DVB. BBC seems fine. Have always used Teletext on analogue because it seems quicker, but now running on DVB in preperation for start of C/O next Wed, have noticed that quite often it is not possible to get T/Text. Is this a function of signal strength, will it improve after the C/O? The alternative of course is to use a digital box and leave TV selected to analogue on the basis that there is a fault on TV digital T/T decoder. I'm guessing that it would be cheaper to adopt the digi box method rather than pay a repair agent with all the problems of actually transporting a 32" flat screen TV to his workshop.
