Using UHF channels C61 to C69? Time to retune | 4G-at-800

jb38- Is that basically what a scart socket type sender does? or do they use their own frequency's?

jb38- Cheers mate, Its the senders i'm asking about? Where the signal is sent without a cable, as theses work with 'transmitting' the signal?
I would imagine these to interfere with 4G through the way they work?

Malcom Mercer ,MikeB. Dave Lindsey, MikeP- If I've got this correct? SKY are offering BTsport as a satellite stream? If so and the internet speeds are not up to it, Why cannot a Freesat Box be used? If these are unable to get the channel could a "European" sat box with a cam slot be used to pick up the frequency and a card used to unblock the signal?

Gweneh- Where I live (Notts/Derbys border) a lot of aerials will pick up multiple signals, Even when aimed at Waltham (Central East) they will pick up and store Emley Moor (Yorks) while still showing 100% quality on both, You can include Sutton Coldfield (Central West) as sometimes being a 3rd option?
Having a booster on helps "rogue" signals to stabalise in the tuning process but they may break up in poor weather

Briantist, MikeB- I understand the "BTVision, Internet" answer but want to know if the Satellite stream can be used on other formats rather than Sky ? or if some one can subscribe to BT Sports if they don't subscribe to Sky ?
many thanks

Why have I been sent a filter for my Freeview? | 4G-at-800
Saturday 19 October 2013 9:12AM Matlock

peter Atkinson- If your TV's are working ok then you do not need a filter.
If you do need a filter then you have 2 options,
you can buy 1 for each TV/ Freeview box and fit it directly before the aerial connects to the TV/box,
or you need 1 for each aerial which needs to be fitted before the aerial cable goes into any boosters/ splitters

Brian- I do believe most of Europe does now use Digital TV Signals, But I doubt that Portugal use the same guard as the UK?

Pearl Beesty- Most scaffolding companies will have done a "Risk Assesment" which will include temporary moving satellite dish's or Aerials?
I would say its worth a mention to the company involved?
Its a common problem to them and I've been called out to put a Sat Dish on to the scaffolding for a month more than once

johnp- If the dish is working ok, A standard "Eurobox" satellite receiver will pick up all available signals using a "Blind Search".
If Freesat signals are reaching your area you will need to pick "Astra2/ 28.2" satellite to scan for them.

Beryl Ash- Your TV has probabley picked up "Belmont" or "Emley Moor" during an update?
Most Panasonic TV's have a "Region Select" in their menu's, but this can be awkward to find?
You need to do a "Manual Scan" on "Waltham" using number 49 and "Nottingham" on 27.
take note of which of these signals are stronger?
Your postcode would be useful
