Tacolneston (Norfolk, England) Full Freeview transmitter
Friday 4 January 2019 9:48AM
Halesworth

03/01/2019:- Live in area IP19 9BN, currently having picture distortion problems on BBC 101 Channel 46 from Tacolneston.
Have had a new aerial fitted, fixed to roof, & it's an extra long one, but still we get picture lose & distortion.
The aerial is connection is direct into a "Humax -Fox - T2" recorder.
What is best way to proceed to clear the problem?
Is this a known problem area?

Hardy,
I've given up getting a HD signal whilst picture break up is not every day it's very annoying especially when programmes have been recorded & drama programmes are interrupted.
I have a new roof aerial & Amp!
But thanks for your input

Questions please:-
1 Would the poor HD signal be anything to do with the TV? It's an old, 12 years, Sony KDL-V32A?
2 I assume with Freesat I would need a Satellite dish?
3 I have a Saterlite dish which is connected to a old Sky box that they fitted 12 years ago for ?10. Could I use this box & still keep the Sky box attached?

Is what I meant about the age of the TV :- Is the Tuner not up to the job being 12 years old?

Strange you say that the TV in question is not HD compatible because looking at the Information Book it states that it is "HDMI" & incorporates HDMI technology, the unit number is KDL-V32A12U. Perhaps it was one of the first produced?

Now I'm more confused.
The picture that is breaking up, but only on a few occasions is:-
BBC 101, Channel 46, 674000KHz, 8MHz, 1/128 (DVB-T2)
I'm getting this through my Humax HDR -FoxT2 box

I thought this was a HD channel/picture am I wrong?

Sorry, but I did state I was using a Humax box in my post of 4 Jan, but this site does not link posts so I apologize.
More than that, why should I not retune (Capital Letters!)?

We live in IP19 area, having total problem, no reception at all for 2 days.
You say it's the weather but is there any e mail address I can complain to?
Me thinks it's more than the weather!
