By providing a full postcode (such as W1A 1AA), national grid reference (for example SE123456) or latitude, longitude pair (like 54, -0.5) this page will provide a map, terrain plot and detailed information of the location showing the UK and RoI television transmitters that it is possible you receive Freeview, Freeview HD, Youview, BT TV and Saorview from.
 

(Don't know your postcode? Find it at Post Office Postcode finder).

UK Free TV uniquely shows you transmitter coverage maps, aerial to transmitter terrain plots, the closest 10 mobile phone masts (for possible 4G-at-800 interference) as well as tabulated information (sorted by direction, by received signal strength, by frequency, by service names or by transmitter name).

Keith: In addition to that already said, the only aspect of what your aerial installer had done that did make me wonder is with regards to him aligning the aerial after having repositioned it, because if his signal meter was temporarily tagged onto the aerials termination point then did he consider that the readings obtained were perfectly OK or not?

If it transpired that they were, and as said in your reply that he tested the signal before and after the splitter then that's inclined to indicate that the aerial feed into the garage is OK, as least anyway at the time he checked it prior to it possibly having been rained on.

To be perfectly frank about it, the only way I see your problem possibly being solved is by another "on site" investigation being carried out whilst your reception is down, and with the signal being measured starting from the TV then back tracking with measurements being taken at all cable access points prior to the aerial itself, then finally on the aerial itself should this prove to be necessary.

The reason for the test being made on the aerial itself is due to the fact that you "might" be located in a position where the signal strength shows significant variations in level every few yards or so, and the only way of verifying if this applies or not is to move around whilst holding a test aerial (log types perfect for this) connected into a signal meter that's strung around ones neck so as to be able to observe the signal strength being indicated, this being a standard fault finding procedure.

jb38: I have asked the aerial guy to return and run a new cable down temporarily into the garage to see if it is indeed a cable problem.

One worrying thing is on the Sony menu setup there is an advanced menu which shows signal strength and some numbers to do with the viterbi decoder. The signal strength reads zero!

I live at BS23 3JF and I am going to install an aerial. Is my address in a strong, medium or weak signal area as this information is needed for me to choose the correct aerial.

derek: If you are receiving Freeview from the Tacolneston transmitter then engineering work is being carried out this week starting today, this resulting in random periods of disruption to the service.

Keith: If you are accessing the signal strength indications via the technical set-up section then were you viewing a programme at the time you accessed this section? because if you were then the programmes mux channel should be indicated along with the strength.

As far as replacing the cable is concerned I would certainly agree with that, as on reading back what you had previously said I just noticed what I had missed before insomuch that you referred to the extra length of cable being added, suggesting that the original section of the old cable is still in use.

As far as I see it though, when an aerial installer is involved then the problem should be easily resolved, as its simply a case of him verifying that the signal level indicated on his meter when tagged onto the actual aerial is above the minimum level for satisfactory reception, then taking it from there right down to the TV's aerial point, a straightforward exercise with the minimum of complications!

I realise that your TV is not bang up to date and likewise its tuner may be slightly lacking sensitive wise to that fitted in your newer Technica, but you did also mention that the Technica was patchy as well which somewhat eliminated the possibility that the Sony had developed a problem.

dale leggett: Perhaps because your receiver isn't capable of receiving the HD signals. A make and model number would allow us to check this.

hi,
am i right in thinking that 61dBm would be 61dB at around 1259 watts?

Please post a question, answer or commentIf you have Freeview reception problems before posting a question your must first do this Freeview reset procedure then see: Freeview reception has changed, Single frequency interference, and Freeview intermittent interference.

If you have no satellite signal, see Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'

If you have other problems, please provide a full (not partial) postcode (or preferably enter it in box at the top right) and indicate where if aerial is on the roof, in the loft or elsewhere.
