Hannington (Hampshire, England) transmitter
Tuesday 28 February 2012 10:57AM


I have just bought the PCTV systems nanostick T2 290e DVB-T2 for installation onto my laptop (Windows 7 64bit), I am able to receive all freeview expected digital programme transmissions except for anything relating to HD - I presume I am just receiving standard transmission?

I had a CRT portable television before switchover hence using my laptop as a temporary measure before I buy a modern television with its internal freeview receiver; I worry for the standard definition picture quality should HD is also not picked up, or have same issue if I optain a stand-alone free-view receiver.

On the PCTV nanostick I have used the supplied PCTV software, tuned in, and also used Windows Media Centre, tuned in, but neither can offer up channel 50 (BBC HD) and other HD channels - this is connecting the aerial cable straight onto the nanostick.

I am considered in zone with the Hannington transmitter - I live between Reading and Basingstoke. Is it my aerial? I would imagine it is 20 years old or so and the reception when analogue was up and running was okay..

Any thoughts are welcomed.
