Single frequency interference | Freeview Interference
Friday 1 January 2016 8:29PM


Could anyone help. We have had problems with are Freeview reception. We have one aerial which feeds 2 tvs upstairs, these have no problem. But recently another aerial which feeds into a recorder box then into a tv has had problems with interference on certain channels mostly on the ARQA multiplex, also BBC on the odd rare occasions So a while(6months) ago we replaced the cables and it was fine, but now it seems as the winds blow strong(which recently it has I'm sure you know) it causes pixilation and sound stuttering.

We bought a new aerial and installed it today which has fixed the problem, after finding the right position. The signal quality seems to be around 75-100 on all channels but the strength is about 50-70 on all channels. Its not 100 but there seems no problems.

The problem is now all the channels on the AQRB multiplex have very poor or no signal. The recorder box and tv pick them up but its very bad and unwatchable. What could be causing this.

Any help. Thanks Carl

jb38: Ok thanks jb38, moving the aerial up the pole has improved this a lot. Quality on all channels it near perfect, strength is down for your recommended 80, they vary between 55-75. But much better than before. Thanks for your help.
