Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Your situation calls for the purchase of an amplified antenna. It is a regular antenna that uses an AC adapter to boost its reception clairity. A good brand of amplified antenna is Terk, and should not set you back more then 60 bucks at the most. There is also cheaper amplified antennas out there but do some research first as its absolutely true on the saying, you get what you paid for!

Samsung phone won't stay connected to 3g why


Either you are in a poor reception area, or you have gsm only connected or your aerial on the phone is not making a proper connection due to recent water ingress or attempted dismantling.
you should be able to check 3G reception for your area over the Internet google 3G your location to ascertain if you get good coverage, if you do then it's probably the phone carrier settings, if they are correct then I would consider physical connection of aerial in phone.it is possible to add an aerial foil to improve reception in some phones or change carrier.

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.

Poor radio reception on a Santa Fe that has the aerial as part of the near side rear window, is there a mod to improve reception.


if you live in a weak reception area the only answer is a signal booster or a new aerial on the roof.

My Regza digital TV has problems with reception. Several channels are perfect, but others keep breaking up and freezing both audio and visual. Other stations have no signal at all. My husband as a result...


I have the same problem with not much help from the store where i brought my TV from, they sell their items but as to good old after sales service it is non exsistant unless you are buying. They suggested it was the co-axial cable and also said the most likely factor is if you have a VCR connected then each time you want to watch TV take the aerial out of the VCR and put it directly into the TV, good one if you want to record on the VCR, this doesnt help the problem. Same you, I am still stuck with reception problems. By the way I have a 42' digital in the Loungeroom with VCR, DVD, Surround Sound all hooked up (& to same aerial on roof) with no reception problems, the one I am having trouble with is small digital TV in bedroom (room is next to loungeroom). I am on the Gold Coast in good reception area. Wonder if anyone has found a solution yet.

Hi, I have a digital tv plugged into an extension cable in an upstairs (Toshiba) bedroom; it works perfectly - receiving all channels. I have a digital tv downstairs (Samsung) where it seems the wall...


Hi Fiona
Somewhere along the line from the aerial there must be a signal splitter that feeds the upstair and downstair terminals.
Try to find that splitter and switch the output to see if the problem goes from up to downstair.
If it does switch then you know the problem is with the splitter block, and if it stays the same then the problem is with the cable and/or the connectors that run downstairs.
Also the reason you get a pixellated(snowy) picture is because of signal loss during the length of the cable you ran downstair.
If running a cable downstair becomes the best option to fix your problem , then you could buy a cheap 10db signal booster/r.f amplifier to correct the signal loss and a cable splitter to feed both tv`s
That booster would be installed upstair in your case(near the source of the signal to be amplified).
I could send you a small diagram if need be. Hope this will help and Merry Chrismas

Ghost on the screen one is a circle in the middle of the screen, the size of a quarter, the second is a black could the size 2"x 5"


Usually when you get this "ghost effect" the caused by signals reflecting from large buildngs.To improve move antenna for best reception or install an aerial wit a small pick up front print.
Or check you have the correct aerial for the tv installed.

In London, Uk. I have poor reception of channel 5. have got recently a one for all powered aerial. how do I set it up? Model sv-9140-00-002


Your reception would be much improved by using a free to air digital set top box - only about £20. If you are in east London especially near docklands channel 5 reception with a conventional aerial gives a lot of problems. sv-9140-00-002 is an interior aerial booster - I doubt whether this will improve things much. Best solution is a good outside aerial - if you live in flats is there no communal aerial available?

Snowy picture, no reception?


Hi, Your question "Do bigger TV's need an aerial booster or something?" - No, normally it should work straight out. Boosters are used for fringe location not bigger TV. Pls a questions and some ideas: 1. "TV worked fine the night before" was it hooked up to Cable or aerial? 2. If cable, it is necessary that you change the settings of the TV from cable to STD or Air or something like that. Normally this can be done via the remote, menu, setting, set-up; 3. If aerial, you would probably need the assistance of a qualified service personnel. Apparently something got loose inside the Philips TV, not a big problem because you can still receive (BBC 1) but not the other channels, possibly a loose wiring, a disconnected connector. 4. If you feel comfortable working on it yourself, unplug the tv and the aerial, open the back and poke around. Trace from the aerial jack, the lead wires used, the connector to the main circuitry. Wiggle the wires a bit for any loose connection. 5. If #4 is not to your liking or if you do not find anything or no significant improvement after closing it up and running it again, guess you're back to #3. Hope this gives you some idea. Lots of luck and kind regards from the Philippines.
