Dave Thanks for the reply. Belmont is on top of a the wolds; I live in a low lying area and found it difficult to receive the analogue signal at times and the previous low output digital one almost impossible periodically. To make matters rather worse, the rear of the property faces immediate woodland of about 50m depth (en route to Belmont)! The aerial is a Blakes JBX 32 element. Is this aerial really that sensitive?
We have a Samsung 22" smart TV. We have recently been losing the use of all BBC channels including Radio channels intermittently. These were not accessible all yesterday (1st Jan/13) evening and have just returned 9.30am today.We are in south Bucks HP10 8AH
4G interference in Belfast. On RTE 2HD etc rf channel 56.
Most people who have Rte channels in Belfast will have a group CD mast head amplifier , this also in making the 4G signal which is on rf channel 63 wipe out or cause picture breakup on the Rte and normal BBC ,itvfreeview channels .
I have changed a few headlamps as they were high gain ,mostly CD 1223 or even the old red CD supreme. I fixed these issues by fitting a Labgear outdoor 4g rejection filter and a CD1213 mast head amp. This should work as the Rte freeview from down south is now a good strong signal . You may not even need a mast head amp it depends on the set top box or tv you are using also which way or type off splitter there may be if the aerials are connected to feed more than one tv.
Also remember the more splitters and joints etc and cheap rf fly leads these cause big problems with reception issues.
Please email me if you have any 4G issues etc and I will try and advise via email. We are the only CAI registered and approved installation company in Newtownabbey and Belfast .
Hope this is helpful.
The past year I have been getting a loss of picture seems to flash on & off then off altogether with the message NO SIGNAL. Stays off for from 15 mins to 6 hrs. I have had the outside area chked to no avail. Sometimes I also get like a raydar effect like sweeping for aircraft...... the loss of signal is now so bad as to make me only use the tv as a monitor for films. Thank you. Beth
For any contributor to be able to help we would need to know where you live by giving a post code, or that of a nearby public building, and the make/model of your TV equipment. It would also help to know if you have your own aerial and where it is located or whether you are connected to a communal aerial system.
There can be many reasons for your reported problem, such as trees, buildings, hills, interuptions in the 'line of sight' between you and the transmitter, and so on. Hence the need for location information. Different makes of TV can have either a more sensitive tuner or a less sensitive one, hence the benefit of knowing what make/model.
