Freeview reception at W4 2SN


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.

Trevor Lupton: OK so they moved Com7 & 8 to CH55 & CH56!

Guess I'll need a new aerial if I really want BBC Four HD & BBC News HD

Trevor Lupton: COM7 & COM8 changed frequency at Crystal Palace several weeks ago. If you don't have satellite or cable you may be eligible to have a replacement wideband aerial fitted free of charge, which can be arranged by contacting the Freeview Advice Line (see link below).

Hi, not sure if this is the right place to ask about DAB coverage...if so could anyone advise where the DAB transmitters are in this part of Suffolk please Google Maps
....car DAB coverage for Absolute radio 70's in this area - mainly between the A14 Copdock and the A140 Coddenham is abysmal and yet I can pick up pretty much all other DAB stations without any issues

thanks

The Care Home is responsible for the communal aerail on the home. Contact them and ask them to ensure that your mother is getting the TV signals she should. Also, put the post code of the home into the Digital UK coverage checker website at Digital UK - Coverage checker That will tell you which channels are being used so you can check that her TV is correctly tuned (the channels in use are usually shown on the manual tuning page - but do not do a retune unless it is clear it is tuned to the wrong channels.

Unfortunately, at the beginning of the century I suffered from a bad stroke that has left me badly disabled both physically & mentally. After having to endure Virgin Media (& I would like to stress 'endure', as it was costing me to nearly 100 to be able to receive a half decent programme after having to wade through 'the best of somebody' or 'their greatest hits' - basically nothing that I'd seen before & didn't really fancy viewing them again. I am not in any way attracted to any kind of sport which virtual does nothing to me apart from putting me to sleep! I live on my own in a 2nd floor flat & am trying to see what 'freeserve' has to offer but even that has proved v. difficult to me to set up.

Richard Thorndycroft:

Freeserve no longer exists, so I suspect you really mean Freeview. All you need do is plug in a Freeview capable TV (almost all of them are nowadays) to your aerial system and make it performs an initial setup. That will find the channels that are available from your communal aerial. Check with your neighbours what channels they get from Freeview (some may be using Sky and some Freesat - both of which are different and irrelevant to you).

If you already have a Freeview capable TV set but are not getting any channels, then you need to do the inital setup. Or maybe do a full retune automatically. The TV User Manual will tell you how to do any of those processes.
