Freeview reception at AB12 3QR


For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter. The map below shows the transmitters predicted to provide a signal at this location.

You can click on any transmitter symbol to show the coverage area as a green overlay on the map. Double click on a transmitter symbol to go to the transmitter information page.

You can also view the ten closest potential '4G-at-800' mobile phone masts within 1.5km of the selected location - these masts may be used for 4G-at-800 mobile broadband services from 2013-2015.

Neilo: You could of course just carry out the aforementioned procedure by leaving a gap of around 1 hour or so between the tests rather than overnight, the only reason for suggesting same being to introduce a time factor into the test as some types of problem may not always show up straight away.

Midhurst - all transmissions on 10,000W muxes not receivable. Those on 20,000W muxes mostly okay, with C55 the only mux that's got no issues. Seemed to go off overnight, perhaps due to storms or perhaps around time when engineering work was going on with DAB.
Full reset of all kit and re-tune hasn't helped. Checked aerial and all looks okay.
Plugged in DVBT card to computer to see what it thinks about mux output.

C55 (746.0MHz) 20,000W - all channels fine. No uncorrectable errors in transmission. Quality 58 out of 60
C56 (754.0MHz) 20,000W - all channels fine. 1 to 3 correctable errors per 5 seconds. 1 or 2 uncorrectable errors per 10 seconds. Quality 55 out of 60
C58 (770.0MHz) 20,000W - can't comment as don't have DVB-T2
C54 (738.0MHz) 10,000W - can't view any channels, 1000's of errors per second. Quality 23 out of 60
C59 (778.0MHz) 10,000W - can't tune to - Quality 12 out of 60
C50 (705.0MHz) 10,000W - can't view any channels, 1000's of errors per second. Quality 24 out of 60

Either I've a local issue, or there's a genuine fault with the Midhurst transmitter since they finished the engineering works on DAB last night.

Dirk Gently: Perhaps it is an issue with a cable or connector.

The signal mode used for the three COM channel (54, 59 and 50) means they are less resiliant and therefore more fragile than the PSB channels, so this could perhaps explain why the COMs are apparently affected more.

Neilo: What model and make of TV do you have? Tuners, etc tend to be pretty reliable, but JB38 suspicion that the tuner is duff makes sense. If it is dodgy, take it back to where you bought it from - its only a year old.

Dave Lindsay: Thanks for your idea. I've replaced every cable between wall socket and TV, and also swapped out signal booster for another one just in case - same result.
It will have to wait until tomorrow before I can get in to the loft to see if there's any cable to replace there - my digital aerial goes into a multi-switch to distribute satellite and freeview to multiple rooms. I've powered that multi-switch off/on but that's not made any difference.
Given no one else here has stated issues with Midhurst transmitter, it's clear it's something on my end. But what, I'm not too sure....
Problem is I need the signal boosters on C54, C59 and C50 as without them I don't get sufficient signal to watch TV normally anyway. Only the more powerful transmissions get through without the booster (and indeed signal strength doesn't increase with booster in line for C56 for example).
Thanks anyway - I'll keep trying to diagnose the local issue, but when it's daylight again !

All five HD channels have disappeared from my channel list, I've retuned the set and now the signals are not being found. All normal DTT channels are showing as normal. We obtain excellent reception from Hannington which is in line of sight of the property. Can you help

Dirk Gently: Woke up to find Midhurst is now all working again. No changes made on my equipment after my last post yesterday, but C54, C59 and C50 are now all watch-able again.

Briantist,still the same result when I put my postcode DH2 3HZ in to the Freeview predictor,no mention of the Pontop Pike transmitter only Fenham 7 Bilsdale. Can you amend this at all? Cheers ................Dave.

If you have no satellite signal, see Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'

If you have other problems, please provide a full (not partial) postcode (or preferably enter it in box at the top right) and indicate where if aerial is on the roof, in the loft or elsewhere.
