Hi. For me to help you, just think of your problem and answer each question in turn. First, are you seeing the words "No Signal" or "Technical fault" on the TV screen?Click if no Click if yes Start again

Alan Jones: Do you have a Samsung series 7/8 with twin Freeview HD tuners? They are equiped with an extra tuner, but frankly, most people just watch using the main tuner, and record on a seperate box.
Your fine for Belmont or Waltham - just let the TV manually tune, and it should sort out everything for you (there is a 100 degree difference in the bearing). Since your in Boston, I suspect Waltham would be better for East Midlands news. You'll need to go through the manual to find out how to chose the secondary turner to record, and attach the right sort of external drive. You shouldn't need to tune into particular muxes at all. Frankly, you can see why its generally easier to use a seperate box.

I was shown your new layout on my laptop and didn't like it at all! Plus some of the more useful elements, such as the "Most Popular" listing was missing!
Please ensure that we retain these features on all devices.

Hi. We are about to move to a new build house in Broughton Crossing.. Bierton. Aylsbury HP225AR. It would seem that we are out to the range of the nearest free view transmitter (Chesham) and on the edge or just outside of thre Crystal palace mast. I wish to purchase an aerial prior to moving in so we can keep the kids quiet . Can you suggest which mast we should point the aerial at and what band should it be. Thanks in advance for your help. P.S. Great web site.

Ray: Although Digital UK's reception predictor indicates that the area in question is covered by both Oxford @ 17miles / 262 degrees and Sandy Heath @ 31miles /47 degrees, however, a Megalithia terrain check on both stations reveals that the signal path from Sandy suffers from multiple line-of-sight obstructions starting from approximately 15miles prior to the given location, therefore I would be inclined to favour Oxford for reception.
As far as aerials are concerned, I would recommend using an aerial of the Log Periodic variety such as a Log 36, as this type of aerial will cover any future changes to the frequencies used for DTT transmission, the other bonus being that it incorporates protection against any possible interference from 4G transmissions.
Under is a link to a supplier of the aerial referred to, just scroll down to the appropriate section.
