My Panasonic Freeview LCD TV has good reception for stv, 4, 5 etc, but I had to do a factory reset and scan to get the bbc channels.
The bbc channels were then found but are very pixelly and not watchable - presumably why the original autoscan didn't assign them a channel number.
I'm not sure the landlady will allow a satellite dish, does this sound like a problem that could be fixed with boosters or a new aerial?
We're at AB51 5HR and surrounded by trees.
It's ironic that the channels you need a licence for I can't actually watch :)
Hope someone can help
Thanks

Thx JB
I'm getting my tv from Gartley, and the signal strength for the BBC channels is virtually nil.
Any suggestions are most welcome
Thx

Thanks JB - I'll post a pic of the aerial and direction tonight - altho from memory it was pointing towards the NW.
If I see my neighbour I'll ask what their TV reception is like.
Really appreciate your help :)
Thanks

Hi JB

I need to double-check channels and signal strengths on the TV as you suggest.
I'll do that tonight.

The aerial is pointing NW, same direction as my neighbour, and the elements are vertically aligned (for Gartley) but I'll check to see if I can get anything from Durris.

If I'm getting good STV, Ch4 etc from Gartley, shouldn't I be able to get good BBC?

Thx again
