Help with Freeview, aerials?
Tuesday, 12 February 2013
Slittle: Your latter two postings have been made under a different heading to that used for your originals and thats likely why they appeared to vanish.
"If" the cable used from the dish to your box is a twin type commonly known as "shotgun" cable, then this type of cable requires special "F" connectors dedicated to that type of cable by having a narrower internal diameter, the problem is that the internal diameter of these plugs can vary from between 4 to 4.8mm and so they have to be perfectly matched to the type of shotgun cable used for the installation, yours obviously not being hence the engineer using tape.
If you felt inclined you could unscrew the connector from the cable and snip an inch or so off the cable, then take that sample to any TV shop that might be located near you and purchase a couple of "F" connectors thats a perfect screw fit onto the sample of cable, then once home again carefully prepare the end of the cable using your sample as a guide and then screw on the connectors, making sure beforehand that ALL strands of braiding are pulled back over the the outer cover of the cable.

For some reason we seem unable to get BBC South East, in our part of Whitstable. We have a new-ish digital aerial, and a new Smart TV, so things work well for other channels (apart from some stations breaking up when the weather has a high pressure area over us). Any suggestions as to why we can no longer (for the last six months or so) get BBC SE, only BBC London?

AJR: Obviously your TV is tuned to Crystal Palace for BBC London. What do you mean by "can no longer"? Have you tried tuning to Bluebell Hill?
It's not too surprising that it has tuned to Crystal Palace as it is only 11 degrees off the bearing of Bluebell Hill.
Fortunately Crystal Palace's channels are in the first third of the band and Bluebell's are higher up, so just have your aerial unplugged for the first 30% of the scan (so as to ensure it doesn't 'see' Crystal Palace's channels).
Once you've done that, confirm that all channels are tuned to Bluebell Hill by observing the signal strength screen on the following:
BBC One should be C46
ITV should be C43
BBC One HD C40
Pick TV C39
