74% is good. If this is from an outdoor antenna and you are the only one connected to it no the booster will not help. The signal would need to be boosted at the antenna itself. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thanks..

My tv in the loft doesnt work at all well it runs from a booster on thevfirst floor then through a bedroom with a splitter then up to my bedroom in the loft


TV signals are funny things. A signal that is perceived as being weak might not be at all because unless great care (and some luck) and some good materials are used longish cable runs can gather so much interference the tv set behaves as if the signal is weak.

A splitter will halve the signal.

Ideally a booster should be positioned close to the aerial so it is amplifying a cleaner signal and not amplifying interference. A masthead signal booster is the best option for a single or double downlead.
For a rooftop aerial and multiple downleads, first the aerial must be a high gain type in the frequency band used in your area. The shortest downlead possible would then feed into a signal booster (in the loft) with multiple outlets so each room or tv set has an exclusive downlead that hasn't been interfered with or split.

Each downlead should be low-loss double-wrapped coaxial cable with the best quality plugs you can find.

You might find it easier to obtain an exclusive aerial for your bedroom tv.

You could try replacing the aerial cable to your room with low-loss cable and get rid of the splitter and booster and replace with a quality booster with two outlets...

switch tv to analogue tv and auto tune on tuning menu making sure sky is on. It should find it around channel 69. If quality poor then change output frequency to a lower channel. You do this with sky menu and instruction book. Info is changing RF output in book, or google it.

You have antenna issues. Try raising the antenna some more or relocating to another spot where the signal strength is greater. Pixelation is a sign of a weak signal -

I have three tvs in my house all off the same ariel.The tv in lounge ok as is the one in 1st bedroom.In our bedroom keep losing signal, have had a booster fitted recently.


I expect the connections could be in need of attention. Check the point where they are connected via that booster. If you have a portable to test the bedroom and rule out the tuner in the bedroom TV?
Hope that helps.

Sky wired up by a basic splitter in loft want to use red eye.


Your vocabulary is not helping I will make some assumptions.
1 you have an antenna setup and want to have three tvs use it.
2 I don't know what sky is so I am going to ignore it.

from the antenna you will run a short length of rfcoaxial to a splitter\booster witch is powered this will allow you to split the signal to 4 or two or three tvs your choice. all tvs will need coax or rf cable run to them and btw 300 ohm cable is not called rf
coaxial cable is preferred because of its signal insulating properties and its longer life expectancy and all tvs today have coaxial inputs on them not 300 ohm.

I suspect there is a Mast Head Amplifier to supply enough signal to split so many ways and the power supply is powered from the power socket supplying the neighbours TV. Switch it off and no/poor signal.

Bought combi hd for bedroom tv says 'no signal'


I bet you are using a mall 'rabbit' ear arial. The easiest way to check this out, if you live in an area with a VERY strong signal, buy a t.v booster. and hook that up between the arail and the t.v. If that doesn't work, get an arial, line it up in your loft, run the cable, plug into the t.v. booster, then into the rear of the T.V. It worked for me, and it was easy.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To get a good signal on all TV units, the source must be good and strong. The source could be an aerial antenna or connection to your local cable provider. The message "No Signal" indicates that the TV cold not receive a decent TV signal. With this in mind, possible solution wouold then be to increase/improve the incoming TV signal:
  • if you are using an aerial, 'height is might' to overcome any line-of-sight obstruction. Additionally, there are antennas with higher gain, meaning they could receive better than other antennas. Another option is installing a pre-amp or commonly called booster;
  • if you are hooked to a cable provider then it may be to your advantage to bring this concern to their attention. They could try transferring you tap off point to a better distribution box, replace your coaxial cable with low loss or even in some cases, install an inline booster;
  • possible RFI (radio frequency interference) which could come from wireless phones, garage door openers, WiFi, electronic dimmers, electronic ballasts of high density lamps and others. If any are present or within the immediate vicinity, pls try to relocate or reposition.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
