Freeview reception at WV1 4LF


For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter. The map below shows the transmitters predicted to provide a signal at this location.

You can click on any transmitter symbol to show the coverage area as a green overlay on the map. Double click on a transmitter symbol to go to the transmitter information page.

You can also view the ten closest potential '4G-at-800' mobile phone masts within 1.5km of the selected location - these masts may be used for 4G-at-800 mobile broadband services from 2013-2015.

There are 38 mobile phone masts within 1.5km of WV14LF (page shows closest 10)

js: Fantastic!
I install VLC and the file worked from the go, I then used your initial posted file along with VLC and all services work.

If any updates for services are available I'd be most grateful.

Thank you again for your input its very much appreciated!

fozzy: Glad you got it working, at least in VLC.

It's useful (and interesting) to get it working in TransEdit.

Try this:

Run TransEdit 4.1.0 Beta.

Click New List and choose TS Stream

In the URL field enter http://stream.arqiva.tv/m…rstv

In the Description field enter Motors TV

Click Add

Select the stream and click Analyze

From the TS Analyzer window you can Preview, right-click the PAT, Select PIDs and Start Recording.

As for updates, look to the source of the info, I can't help there.

js: Thanks for the update Ive finally got it working and recording, shame there no timer recording facility.

Do you know if the other channels work ok as Ive tried them and they either dont work or stop after a few minutes I'm assuming they are pay for view.

Thank you again for your help its very much appreciated.

fozzy: It seems that Passion and Chatbox are no longer working; causing a 'Tuning Error'.

I tried playing Vintage TV and it stopped after two minutes, so I set TransEdit to record the stream. It was still running half an hour later, so it seems to be intermittent.

I think you said it's working on your Sony TV now. Does it also stop on that?

Looks like a server problem to me. Is it just Vintage TV? I've not had the issue with others I've tried.

Why is Aljazeeras no longer transmitting on freeview Channel 83 and is now only available on HD freeview. This effectively cuts out a current potential audience of several million and seems to make no sense.

Andy: Oxford is listed (as from yesterday 14th) on the planned engineering page under the heading of "Possible weak signal", this always having more of an effect in area's where reception is not of a line-of-sight nature, such as applies in your particular case.

To your website designer: I am now stuck with a left-hand sidebar. How do I get rid of it? Please email your answer.

Eric Brett:

I am not the designer but I suspect ypu may have changed a setting in your browser so that it shows a 'side bar' of items on the left side.

If you are using Firefox, go into the View menu and select the Sidebar option. There, untick the offending sidebar so it disappears.

Hope that helps?
