Hello, i live in paisley and I cant seem to get the HD channels on my TV using the inbuilt tuner or on my usb TV tunner, but all other channels work perfectly well. Wondering what could be the problem

Nino: The most common answer to this question is that the TV is a HD one but doesn't have a "Freeview HD" (DVB-T2) tuner in-built. Knowledge of make and model numbers will allow this to be answered.

Hey

I tried to get Freeview when I first moved in last year. We live on a ground floor flat at G13 1JZ and sadly the building doesn't have a roof antenna. I bought a random aeriel from amazon - (http://www.amazon.co.uk/August-Amplified-Digital-Antenna-Booster-Black/dp/B006I2WRSC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1430480590&sr=8-1&keywords=tv+aerial) and got absolutely nothing. I was using it at the windows with an extension cable.

So I gave up but am looking to try again. I didn't realize how close I was to this transmitter and wonder if this was the problem. I'm getting another aeriel first to see if that was the problem but wonder if there's anything else I can do. As I'm so close it doesn't make sense that I would be getting totally nothing through (unless I'm in some very weird specific hotspot).

Thanks!
