Hi,

Does anyone else have trouble receiving signal in Oakdale, Poole for their freeview box?

At the moment I can only receive BBC channels and NO others.

Any help or ideas would be appreciated

Matt: The only other services are those on D3+4 (see above) - I would have a look at Single frequency interference | Freeview Interference | ukfree.tv - 10 years of independent, free digital TV advice .

The Poole transmitter has always been poor in Oakdale [BH15] Best to use vertical transmissions from Rowridge or Mendip I get perfect reception on all channels from Mendip only thing missing South Today.

Mike : If you have an aerial Mendip and one on Rowridge, but the latter's COMs aren't good then either combine the feeds with a diplexer or have a separate set-top box connected to the Rowridge aerial specifically for viewing of regional content.

Online TV Splitters, Amps & Diplexers sales

UHF Bandpass filters, amplifiers for terrestrial TV

The diplexer necessarily need not be on the roof. Having it behind your TV set means you can remove it easily if needs be.
