Are there 2 wires that can be seen? And is it flat looking or is it round cable with silver braided wire with white center insulator with copper looking center conductor? If it is the latter you can purchase screw on connectors at most electronics shops. Example...Radio Shack, Home depot, Lowes etc. Good luck and happy tv watching. Jay

Digital TV says "NO SIGNAL


Mine regularly says that. The first time it happened I thought my aerial had fallen off the roof or something but I soon discovered simply switching off the power for half a minute so it had to reboot cured the problem until the next time.

When these incidents happen too often I restore order with a factory reset.

How do I shift the radio antenna off the roof of my Mazda BT50 onto the bullbar?


remove the roof antenna ( unscrew off the mount) buy an aerial for the bumper. run the coaxial cable back to the radio and pull the existing cable out and after fitting a connector on to the end of the new cable plug it into the back of the radio. It will be a lot of trouble to remove the existing cable and roof mount and you will need it at a later date.

Why are roof tiles, under TV aerials, discoloured on most roofs?


Most of the discolouration I see has got nothing to do with the metal, which is usually a fairly inert aluminium covered in aluminium oxide. What does seem to happen quite a lot is birds sit on the aerials and just do what comes naturally - leaving behind a bit of a stain. I spent a few years at sea and saw an albatross roost on a rotating radar aerial overnight. The next morning the deck underneath was a mess of semi-digested fish, a huge amount for just one bird! Here you will get more information about aerials.

I have a sony EX4|40 with built in Freeview. However, the port on the tv is a UHF (?) port (Im not technically minded, my port names may be wrong so I hope you know what I mean), The cable which runs from...


xtreamz_69,

It sounds like you connected the coax cable to your TV. What channel is the TV set on when you have the Freeview connected? Because you are using a coax cable, the TV should be set to either channel 3 or 4 (normally channel 3). Check to make sure your TV is on one of those channels. Also verify your receiver is on. Your TV has the several other type ports (HDMI, component, composite) as alternatives to pick up your picture. If you have any other questions, please post to this site.

Water leak from inside the tv aerial through the pin connector


its most likely a leak in the roof following the wire down to the tv this could be a very big problem as any wood on the way to the tv has a chance to rapidly rot and create larger voids for air to get through you will want to send someone up to the roof to check where the line comes in and caulk the hell out of it

Since digital switchover yesturday loss of digital channels


It may well be your aerial despite the success with your DVD recorder.

Digital signals are very much weaker than analogue ones, and when multiple devices share a single aerial you can get this kind of problem. You also lose about 60% of the signal at each point in your aerial cable where there are signal splitters.

There are a number of possible solutions:-

First, look at every bit of coaxial cable you have between the aerial and each appliance. Check especially at the aerial end for corrosion or poor shielding/installation and especially for evidence of rain water penetration. If the aerial is on the roof then it will cost almost as much to get the aerial inspected as it will to have it replaced, so skip to the next option. But otherwise, check along every bit of the cable for any cuts or splits in the insulation and properly remake every junction or joint if there are any doubts about them. If the cable is in poor condition then consider option three instead.

The second is to try to see if you get a better digital signal from another transmitter, this will involve trying different aerial positions so is impractical if your aerial is roof mounted but is worth trying if it's in the loft instead. It doesn't always follow that your best digital signal will be from the transmitter which you used for analogue transmissions.

Thirdly, if you're still using the same aerial as you have done for years then it's worth upgrading to one optimised for digital reception. When doing this it's foolish not to replace the cabling as well as you need it to be as good as possible. With analogue, many installers got away with using cheaper cable intended only for very short cable runs from the wall socket to the tv.

The fourth option is the budget option but can work as well as the third option: fit an additional analogue style aerials and run a separate cable down to each appliance. If these are fitted in the loft and you have the space, then there's no aesthetic or planning concerns. Normally the extra cables can run partway down through the house alongside existing cables, but for best signal quality keep them separate and ensure that the cable runs as as short as possible.

One further thing which you may want to try before all else: connect your digital box directly to the aerial cable which currently feeds your dvd recorder. Leave all other tv devices disconnected from the aerial. If the box retunes correctly then it's definitely a supply of signal issue as outlined above and if not then you should add the exact make and model of your digibox as a comment to this answer as there are a large number of earlier digibox models which cannot retune correctly due to evolving standards.

Pay tv cable


you may bypass the box by using a straight connector, find the cable that lead to the TV room and connect it to the cable from the aerial antenna.

Coaxle cable (from aerial on roof to TV or top box)


I believe that you use the same type of connector as in the UK.

If so, this site or this video should help you.

Even if your connector is a slightly different design, the principles are the same.

Hope this helps,

Coaxle cable (from aerial on roof to TV)


Go purchase a coax male f connector, and the crimpers. Cut off 1/2 inch of rubber sleeving and fold the metal shielding back. Now cut the with part a quarter from the end but not all the way. You want the center piece to poke out. Now slide the f connector on and crimp.
