I have an outside digital aerial that through a splitter feeds 3 cabels into my house. Overnight, none of the cables running into the house feed a reception into the tv's. All tv's say no signal. I have checked the cable coming from the aerial into the af input and the connection is fine. All 3 cables coming out of the splitter are still firmly joined insidevthe splitter. Had the aerial professionally installed 6 months ago. Any help would be appreciated

david ledsam: Logically, the problem has to be the splitter or its connection from the aerial. Is the splitter inside the house?

I have a TV in the Severn valley near Bewdley (postcode DY12 3AH). The aerial has been pointed at the Wrekin transmitter for the past five years, but in the last six months has stopped receiving any but BBC channels and a couple of shopping channels. Is this a change in transmission or might it be a fault with my equipment?

a heron: Although you may well be working on a building site in Aberdeen, info is required as to the location of said site, i.e: an approximate post code, as although the Durris transmitter covers most of the Aberdeen area, many black spots for reception exist to the NorthWest of the city, this area being covered by the Balgownie Freeview light transmitter.

However, that said, indoor aerials are never entirely satisfactory for Freeview reception as they are vulnerable to movement with the room, but as far as recommendations are concerned, any indoor aerial with a built in amplifier is your best bet.

If though the scaffolding referred to will be in place until the end of the project , then a small log periodic aerial mounted on the scaffolding could prove to be more satisfactory, the undermentioned being a link for the item referred to.

a heron: Although the Durris transmitter is indicated as being able to provide excellent reception in Fraser Street and surrounding areas, this may not necessarily apply in your particular situation, that is, of being screened from the signal due to residing in the ground floor of a three story building, and which would appear to be surrounded by other buildings of a similar structure

Taking this into account, I very much doubt if you will be to achieve satisfactory reception unless you manage to mount the aerial as high as you can on the scaffolding, dropping a length of coax from same down to your ground floor location, the aerial mentioned in the link on my previous reply being ideal for the job.

By the way, the Durris transmitter is located at 15 miles away on a bearing of 224 degrees, if though you are unsure of the angle you are facing, use the direction the communal aerials are facing that's installed on the gable ends of the surrounding buildings.
