Hi.

If you put aerial up your self was it wide band aerial ?
Is it in the atic or on the roof ?
Have you used decent quality cable (not the cheap stuff)
How long is cable run from aerial ?
Have you checked that when you fitted rf plugs that none of the braid strands are touching solid copper inner core ?
Ask an earial installer or Tv shop what the signal strength is like in your area.

Often ABC channels have no signal while all the others are okay.


Guessing you are talking about free to air channels broadcast by terrestrial channels.
I have the same set up , just a normal tv receiving signal through an aerial......Bearing in mind that signals come from different sources , the aerial / antenna needs to be optimally located and positioned.
I often get signals from commercial tv but lose the signal from the BBC here in the UK. I bought and fitted a signal booster and a good aerial and no longer suffer from poor reception on any channel.

Sky problem


Freeview has nothing to do with satellite. FreeSAT is the one that uses a satellite dish for reception. FreeVIEW is received through the aerial.

Also, don't fall for the "digital aerial" scam. I install aerials as part of my business. I've been to homes with aerials 20 years old, covered in soot from the chimney and they still pick up Freeview perfectly well. Equally, I've been to homes where the owner has bought some gold plated multi-finned "digital high gain" monstrosity that has awful reception characteristics.

If your TV aerial is okay, then just plug it in to your Freeview receiving TV and do the tuning.

If you do want Freesat then you will need a satellite dish along with a Freesat receiver.

I have a brand new technika tv 216/54g. It has freeview built in. I have a brand new indoor digital amplified aerial also technika but I cant get it to pick up any stations. Do I need anything else? please...


Hi there,

You don't necessarily need anything else, but you may not have a strong enough signal to pick up the digital/freeview channels using an indoor aerial. It could also be that the indoor aerial is not correctly aligned.

If the signal strength is lower than approx. 50%, the TV may detect them during the automatic channel scan but it wont store them. When the signal strength for any digital channel is 50% or lower it's more or less unwatchable - the picture would be constantly breaking-up or freezing and the audio drops out continually. Trying to scan for channels using an indoor aerial is rather hit and miss. Numerous attempts may be necessary before you get any channels.

Assuming you have a roof aerial, it is far easier to temporarily connect the TV to a fixed aerial point while you run the automatic channel scan. The TV will store all the channels and you can then move it to it's permanent location and connect the indoor aerial. You can then adjust the indoor aerial with the channels already stored until you find a location for the aerial where you have a good signal.

Doing it this way also eliminates the possibility of a fault with the TV and confirms that you are performing the channel scan correctly. If the TV is connected to a fixed aerial point and you are still unable to receive or store any channels, then it's likely that you are performing the channel scan incorrectly or there is a fault with the TV.

Please try scanning your channels using a known working fixed aerial point. If you are still unable
to receive any channels - or you don't have any fixed aerial points - please post back for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

Have problem with Philips On digital terrestrial receiver (DV3). Since the digital switchover in Bolton, where I live, it wont let me do an update. Can't get any channels now. Stewart


Try unplugging the unit from the wall, unplug the Aerial cable from the box. Plug the mains back in and switch on. Do a channel scan (with the aerial still unplugged). Reconnect aerial and do another scan. With luck it will have flushed the old settings and pick up the channel changes.

I have just moved house to Reading and previously was able to view freeview tv using my old indoor aerial in my 2nd floor flat in london. This indoor aerial didn't pick up any signals, not even analogue,...


You will need to have an outdoor aerial installed, the signal area you're now living in will not be a strong enough reception for an indoor aerial no matter how good or expensive. You could try the indoor aerial in different positions around the room especially by a window to try & pick up some other channels but the long term this will cause some of the programmes to break up or freeze. An aerial on the roof or in the attic will be your best solution to pick up all the digital channels on freeview.

No signal on teristeral but able to watch tv through sky


This could be down to several things so sorry if this is long winded but really needed more info from yourself...

Sky gets its signal from the dish mounted on your exterior wall.

your terrestrial signal comes from your terrestrial aerial be it external or internal.

If you do have an aerial cable coming into your property and it is connect to your television. Go into your TV MENU and set it away on Auto Tune if this does not come up with any channels. Try auto tune on your built in Digital tv ie DTV if it has this option...

If neither of these work then you need a new aerial or it needs to be re-aligned.
Personnally I would not bother with a Terrestrial Aerial You already have Sky installed so this will be fine for when the Whole of the UK goes digital. Dont be fobbed off by people telly you that you need a Digital aerial as your sky dish is already Digial anyway.

Hope this Helps

Lost ITV channels and C4


I think you need to get Sky because it will give you 100% coverage of all terrestrial channels. You may need to retune the television otherwise just get sky

I`ve set up my philips digital terrestrial receiver DTR220 and i`ve scanned for all channels, but i can`t pick up any because my aerial is not picking up any signal. I`ve tried different, stronger aerials...


I actually moved my tele to the other side of the room to see if it would work in a different spot and it took me ages to get some signal by moving my aerial around. The signal still wasn`t strong and i didn`t have alot of the channels and then i turned it on a few weeks after and it was working perfectly. Don`t ask me why! :s
