I bought a signal booster from B&Q, sorted my signal out straight away. They come in all sizes from 1 aerial up to 8-10 aerials. reasonably priced as well. If it doesn't work you can return it, just keep your receipt and return it within 28 days.

Check the wiring between your tv set and aerial for damage.

Cable picture is fuzzy


Call your cable company as there might be a problem with the drop line or aerial coming into your house. now another thing is if you have a signal splitter( ex: 2-way, 3-way, 4-way) before the cable box, that could be degrading the signal as each input may drop the signal significantly. remeber, don't use too many splitters as they will make the signal faded/fuzzy. also, make sure all the connectors are clean and are not badly bent or the ends frayed. If you can see wire insulation from the cable line then it's no good.

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.

Freeview - No transmitter found


The signal from the communal aerial might be weak, since other people are using it, or it is experiencing interference with a power cable or something.
Try a signal booster from **** Smith or Harvey Norman, RadioShack, Tandy, Walmart etc ( I assume you are Australian - Freeview :) )
OR
Get your own aerial, if you don't live in a concrete shoebox....

Hi I am Vortash .. usually the problem is aerial the digital aerial is diffrent to the old UHF aerial and you will need to change it should you still be using it .. from what you say the set is working fine and you didnt do anything wrong .. it is just like unlike the old annalouge signal where you would get a picture even if it was poor .. digital systems are less forgiving of low signal and just blank the low signal channels out .. to check for sure if your not already , use a set top aerial.. and move it about to find the best signal if you get more channels problem found so update your aerial ( Or stand the kids in the corner holding the aerial ?LOL ) I hope this helps and that you will be on freeview soon .. oh and check with the ITA that your area has full Freeview transmissions .. there is a 24 hour call line .. on 0800-40 85 902 and they will give you all the information you will require hope this helps Regards Vortash

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

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

New aerial wont pick up digital reception and fuzzy picture on terrestrial channels


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.
