Indoor aerials | Installing
Wednesday 28 December 2011 3:18PM

I can get all 6 groups using the One-for-all 9360 in my son's bedroom (back of the house) which faces the transmitter (Pontop Pike), but when I move into my bedroom at the front of the house I lose groups 2 & 4 (ITV, Channel 4 & Channel 5).

I'm presuming because the aerial quite literally can't 'see' the transmitter. Probably not much I can do about that, but is there anyway I can boost the signal, or is there a device I can plug into the unused rooftop aerial downstairs to 'transmit' a signal to the rest of the house?

Thanks for that JB38.

Only problem with putting the device in the loft is the work around getting the cable through the ceiling to the TV.

Morning Dave, yep, tried moving it around and it works in some parts, so looking at the extension route.

One thing I have found quite bizarre is I can tune the TV fine in one part of the room, with the aerial one side, but if I move the actual TV and keep the aerial in the same place, I lose the tuning again?!

Surely moving the TV shouldn't make a difference? I'm hoping it's because the current extension isn't actually long enough and it is moving ever so slightly.
