Freeview reception at NR8 6WB


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.

Jean Willey:

Then it appears that your TV is only an 'HD Ready' type and not a full HD one. The only way to view the programmes you want is either to change the TV for a full HD one or else buy a set top box that is also a full HD one.

If my house receives full coverage from the transmitter 5miles away (I can see it on top of the hill from my back garden). Your predicted channel list lists loads of channels. Why do only ever receive 2 at time? They also change every time I turn on the tv, but only ever the main 5.

Thank you Mike, I have just got my paperwork out and the tv is a Toshiba 22L1333B 1080p Full HD LED TV. So I still do not know why I cannot get HD channels or C32 and maybe others that I am not aware of.

Jean Willey: Full HD refers to the screen resolution, not the tuner as MikeP incorectly stated. You need either a TV or box with a DVB-T2 tuner (usually labelled Freeview HD or Freeview Play) which according to Toshiba's website your TV doesn't have. You can get a Freeview HD set top box (such as the Manhattan Plaza HD-T2) for under 50 if you aren't intending to replace your TV any time soon.

StevensOnln1:

I correctly stated that Full HD refers to the TV set having both a DVB-T2 tuner as well as a screen capable of 1080p resolution. That has been the accepted definition for many years abd is used as such on this website. An HD Ready TV has a ascreen capable of 1080p but does not have a DVB-T2 tuner.

Jean Willey is likely to be using Ridge Hil, based on the links in her original posting, so should be getting the HD services.

MikeP: You are incorrect. Full HD refers only to the resolution and not the tuner. There are many TVs on sale which are labelled Full HD because they have a 1920x1080 panel but do not have a DVB-T2 tuner. Jean Wiley would indeed be able to receive COM7 from Ridge Hill, however Toshiba's website confirms that the TV model number she has does not have a DVB-T2 tuner.

MikeP: Sorry Mike, but as a neutral party, I have to say that Steven is correct.

Full HD TV's were described as such (or often as 'Full HD 1080') some years before DBV-T2 tuners became available in about 2010-11. 'HD Ready' normally descibed a x768/720 panel, when you think about it, it just said that the TV could take an HD signal, even though unless you had a blu-ray, Sky, Virgin or Freesat, you weren't going to get it.

Think just how many times people have complained about having a HD TV, but can't pick up HD - its because the HD part is about the panel, not about the tuner. Now, fortunately, its both, although I was asked at least three times today whether a TV came with Freeview!

I disagree! The term full HD has been used for some years since TVs equipped with DVB-T2 tuners appeared as opposed to those that are just HD Ready which do not have DVB-T2 tuners. Even you have used the difference in the past.

MikeP: 'Full HD' has always been taken to mean it had a 1080 panel, and hence could be used with a Blu-Ray player. But those appeared before DVB-T2 tuners appeared on the market.

For instance, this is a review of the Sony KDL W5810 Sony KDL-40W5810 review | What Hi-Fi? (the only TV Sony has made with a Freesat tuner) which appeared in 2009, which only had a Freeview tuner (and would only have that, a DVB-C or a DVB-S tuner), and yet the review refers to it having a 'Full HD LCD'. Thats because it had a 1080 panel.

One of the reasons why the industry brought in standard descriptions was to try to avoid the confusion of marketing descriptions which confused people - HD ready - Wikipedia - hence HD Ready meant just that, and even HD Ready 1080 was the official terms for 'Full HD'.

Even now, there are plenty of TV's which are 768 panels and discribed as HD Ready by their manufacturers, which actually have HD tuners. But those tuners can't make a 768 panel into a 'Full HD' one.
