Advice for Freeview users. aerial position is key to success.even putting the aerial on a different side of a chimney can make a difference. just because your neighbour has a loft aerial doesnt mean you can. signal can be different even to the sensitivity of signal in one location and then nothing literally 2 feet along. i recently installed a 10ft mast on a house but the neighbour had a loft install.!! if you have a loft install and things have been OK upto now then it May be than something has been built in your patway to knock the signal. advice given by Jamie of WWW.jayscabling.Co.UK

hi, there are no issues with reception in your area, the problem must lie with your system, the only way to determine what is causing the problem is to do a system test, i am your local approved digital installer who can provide a free system test if you wish, please contact jays cabling services.

Colin -

you should try to locate the aerial in a different possition within the loft, sometimes simply moving the aerial a few feet either left or right can make all the difference.

Hi, I am a PROFESSIONAL INSTALLER RDI APPROVED

sometimes there has been ocassions when some locations will have a complete mux missing even though all others are OK.

RARE but possible.

You could be just one of the unlucky ones.

As I said before, try the aerial in different locations as simply moving the aerial a few feet left or right, or even up and down can make a difference in how your signal is received.

This may be difficult if you are not using a meter which can show you the readings of the MUXS seperately.

GOOD LUCK

BARRY-

what is your postcode and do you know if your existing aerial is running through an amplifier or splitter?

TREVOR RHODES

Hi, your poor signal seems to be on the commercial muxes.

The best thing to try first is to have the aerial tilted so that the elements are vertical as apposed to horizontal.

The reason for this is that they signal strength is stronger on VP setting rather than on HP setting.

The fact that all has been fine up until recently could also indicate that maybe something is being built in your signal path, causing your weak signal.

I would try altering the aerial first then go from there.

RACHEL

many things can cause problems with reception.

The key questions are:

is your aerial good
are the cables and connections good
do you have any splitters or amplifier
what area do you live in
are there specific channels that are not working

With all systems there can be problems from time to time

however all equipment can have a life span of about 20 years.

Just to confirm that Rowridge transmission has been perfect the last few days.

If you provide your location and system details I may be able to provide more information.

regards

Jamie

If you answer these few questions I may be able to help.

1. your location
2. does your system have an amplifier
3. how many connections on the system
4. age of aerial
5. when did your problems start
6. is the aerial mounted outside or in a loft

reception issues can be down to poorly sited aerials or connection and equipment issues.

regards

Jamie

Hi,

in my experience your location had a very strong signal even prior to switchover.

As both you and your neighbours are experiencing the same issues I would imagine it is due to TOO MUCH signal being received.

This can only be determined by a system test, however you could try fitting a attenuator to reduce you signal level.

Are your aerials on yours and your neighbours mounted in the loft of externally? this could be another issue.

Information provided by a Digital Approved Installer.

The only true way to find out what is the cause is to have your system tested.

regards

Jamie.
