Question about Famous Trails Ariel FT300 Monocular

Open Question

Ariel we are down stairs in a rumpus room and get good, nz1 nz2 and nz3. but the other channels are are fuzzy, ghosted and go in and out, and are impossible to watch when its raining. mum who lives upstairs also gets good tv nz 1 2 and 3, and has the same problem plus gets some sort of emi on her 100hz tv,  which is strange because we dont. ( could that be the boster? ). she has a shorter tv cable to the ariel .  We origionally had a low gain ariel which worked well and i dont remember having any of the current problems. until we did, so we got a technician in and he put up a high gain ariel. We live about 400 meters from some power lines and are in a valley. Also the tv cable is thin, i think its rg9. Question? would using rg6 cable ( thicker cable ) and adjusting the low gain ariel fix week signal  problem, and is there anything that could help with the emi that my mum gets. please send me your thoughts to... kind regards Douglas R

Can't pick up channels itv, channel4/5 and itv2 on my bedroom freeview tv and down stairs doesn't pick up film4 and a few others?? I have only recently connected the bedroom aerial to the ariel which was...

hi when fitting an new aerial line you need to put a splitter in the line.
4963215_1-oo4k03phwtyaxld0gomgkgbv-2-0.jpg it looks like this. they say satellite/tv on them this will stop interference from the boosters and the tvs on the same line, you connect it on the main arial line. you can then use both boosters if signal is weak but most digital aerials are good enough without them. it you have the right arial for your area. there are meany sizes. but say you are 15 miles from your tower then use a small aerial has the same fitting as this pic. that is out side aerials, inside aerials ie in loft you need a high gain aerial , long type. hope this helps. also if the aerial is not lined up it will not get great signal there is an app you can use on iphone or androids, tables etc to help you position the aerial in the right place it's called Uk aerial alignment . tool on app shows you the towers in your area and the best ones to use and shows you the aliment to the tower for best results. good luck

Place a video camera in the room where the piano is located, and another pointed at the pictures.

The camera will show the spirit or gremlin that is causing your haunting.

Since many spirits are camera shy, it may cause them to leave.

Good Luck!

Fuzzy and ghost picture

Sounds like Either the cable from the wall to the TV is bad usually this will cause ALL channels to be fuzzy.Or your cable on the outside of the house is damaged.another common problem is the outlet on the wall has a bad connection.If they get painted over with wall paint this will also cause the problem.change the wallplate.If its damaged outside the cable company will usually fix it for pay for the service and it their responsibility to make sure you wiring outside the house is working properly.

Re: Can't change from Video

You will need the remote to do this. If you can't find the remote get a universal remote with a video or input button on it. The other set may not be the same model and has different features.
