Newhaven (East Sussex, England) Freeview Light transmitter
Saturday 2 June 2012 8:56PM

Have bought 2 new Freeview TV's for kids bedrooms, both different makes. Also have a older Freeview tv & our main tv of 6 years, but has Freeview tuner. All work off same aerial. One of the kids TV's can pick up 32 channels, 2 other TV's can get 11 channels & main tv only gets 7 channels. Tried several re-tunes with no change. Why is there a difference in number of channels rec'd? Will this be corrected on 13th?

Thanks Dave, I think you may have answered my issue. Although the loft aerial points to Newhaven, one of the TV's is using a higher grade cable. Just done another re-tune, and it's back to 11 TV & 11 Radio on CH50. I think it was then picking up CH 25 & CH 27/8 as well at the time.
However, do I need to upgrade all the coax cable to receive all channels on all TV's, as main TV only seeing 7 TV & 11 radio. I'm only 2 miles from NH transmitter & is visible. Will NH be the best transmitter to use once 13th comes?
