Shauna Hughes: Please can you see Freeview reception has changed? | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice ? I would not discount the possibility your box is broken.

hi
we have a digital tv and a digital dvd box decoder. We are also using an internal aerial.

The TV picks up no chanels at all on search, but the box can pick up about 11 chanels incl the bbc chanels. but no itv (pal2?) ?

any suggestions to help get the tv to pick up "All" chanels ?

thanks

Gavin: FreeVIEW TVs need to be connected to a UHF aerial, not to a satellite dish. There are FreeSAT TVs that expect to be connected to a dish.

Freeview TV aerial connectors just push in to the set or box, whereas satellite connections are threaded. Some aerial installers use threaded connections throughout, only converting to a plain connection for the last cable, because the threaded connections are generally more reliable, so you might have the other sort of connection.

If it is a Freeview TV, as you're fairly close to the Sandy Heath transmitter, you may pick up enough signal just in the cables. Different sets have different sensitivity - minimum signal requirement - so that could be why one works and another doesn't, or that the different lengths of cable produce different results.

It is possible to combine aerial and satellite dish signals onto the same cable (a diplexer) and to split them again at the other end. The signals from dish to box are at a higher frequencies than the signals from aerial to TV, so you can actually plug the combined connection into either device and it should work, if this has been done.

If you have an aerial and Freeview worked reliably before mid-April, you may have too much signal. If there's an amplifier or booster in the system, remove it or turn it down. If that doesn't help, add an attenuator.

kmurray: We really need a full postcode to offer much advice. Different equipment has different minimum signal requirements, so that can explain why some services work and some don't. Also, the 'loop-through' connection from the box to the TV often introduces extra noise or additional unwanted gain - you might get better results by using a 'Y' splitter to feed each box from the same aerial cable, rather than connecting the TV to the box.

The 'fly lead' supplied for connecting the box to the TV is often poor quality. See Online Satellite/TV/FM/DAB Cable, Leads and Connectors sales. for a better quality replacement. A poor quality lead will drop more signal and pick up more noise.

Brian: These codes are for a LOGIK L32DIGB20 tv They may well be ok for your model, it also depends on which version of remote you have, but worth a try. 0221 0033 0061 0039 0726, you may also try these with out the first 0. Good luck.

Brian: Logik is a Dixons/Currys group brand. I'm afraid they don't seem to be making much information available. Try contacting their customer support at Customer support | Dixons | .
