Freeview reception - all about aerials | Installing

gel :

Assuming you mean an set top aerial and not an aerial in the loft then

NO filter will help as the filter needs to be installed prior to amplification.

All indoor aerials have the amplifier built in which means you have no place to fit the filter.

I can only say that you have been lucky to use a set top aerial all this time as they have a reputation for being rubbish.

Only a proper aerial will do the correct job without issues.

S Hall:

have you ever thought that the issue may be with your system rather than the transmission being sent?

ASTRA 1N satellite has entered commercial service

HELP.

my sat finder shows the astra 2 beams separately the same as a multi switch ie HH, HL, VH and VL.

Recently I cannot test the VH reception, I am assuming this is because the signal has been changed.

Any advice welcome.

regards

hi Briantist

I was just using the multiswitch as a reference,

When I have been to customers homes over the last few days the VH reception has been missing on all installs not just one specific.

this has been since Thursday/Friday last week

I have noticed this problem on new installs and old ones.

All channels seems fine on the stb's

I though this might be the beam that had been moved to another satellite

Briantist:

ok now I am confused.

my test meter shows the same 4 signals from astra 28.2 that get inputted into a multiswitch. ie VL, VH, HL and HH.

I test all 4 of these everytime I install or work on a satellite dish.

since last week the VH signal has shown no signal on multiple installs.

Has this simply moved??

Obviously your knowledge of satellites far proceeds mine :)

thanks for any further advice.

Mazbar:

hi,

I manual choose vh from a list.

just seems coincidental to the timing of the changes to astra recently.

I have had this problem since Friday last week.

Seems strange out of all the sats on my meter that this is the one setting no longer working

HELP.

Can someone please advise the 4 different frequencies used for the 4 inputs of a multi switch.

I am having issues with my test meter and need to double check the settings.

thanks in advance.
