If they've tried plugging it into the aerial socket and it doesn't
work properly then it's almost certainly true. New aerials are about a
hundred quid. I don't know what the nearest digital-capable
transmitter is to WV10; it might be worth, even if the aerial in the
roof doesn't work, trying a stand-alone "rabbit ears" portable aerial
before spending a hundred nicker on a new one.
