Freeview reception at SA5 7EB


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.

Freesat requires the use of a satellite dish outside the property and aimed at the the Freesat Sattekite at 28.2 degrees East (orbital) plus a suitable box that must not be in the loft, so it is not at all like Freeview reception. The Freesat system will require external cabling from the LNB on the external dish and running into the house so it can be connected to the Freesat decoder box. This is rather similar to receiving Sky via the satellites and the same dish might be suitable for Freesat depending on position and what LNB you may have already for Sky.
The output from the Freesat box can be fed as UHF analogue signals via an active splitter to other TVs - providing they can receive analogue signals and not just the digital ones. (I don't know of any set top box that has an output of UHF digital signals.) The usual HDMI and/or SCART cannot be 'split' properly without losses of quality.

Hello MikeP, Thank you for your advice and it looks like I will be using the unpowered splitter suggested by Dave Lindsay. Before I do, Could you tell me whether the absence of power will affect the tvLinks which I use from my Sky box to two other tvs? Further, would the existing splitter box continue to work to distribute the tv and FM signals if it was unpowered? Thank you.

Hi,

When I enter my postcode which is North Norfolk, near Hunstanton, the map shows my Transmitter as being in Brighton. Is there something not quite right there?

Hello again MikeP, I have now been in the loft, and i think I am going to call out an expert. There are two boxes (a) Global F140 which has one cable in and three out and I think that is for Sky, and everything worked including the tvLinks, even when the power was off to the other box, probably because the Global remained powered even when I had switched off the other box (b) which is a Multipoint which has TV and FM aerials in and three out. When I switched off the power to that box, everything seemed to work except that BBC did no - either no signal or negligible and useless signal. I was hesitant to try the bypass which Dave suggested, so I cannot be sure whether it is too much power for the BBC signal, which is infuriating because all others seem OK.
Unless you have any other advice, I think I will have to call in the experts. Thanks for your continued patience and help.

Graham Cole: If as I understand it, you are wishing to use add a Freesat box to your system then as MikeB has said you will require to run a coax from same to your dish, this being qualified by adding that provided the LNB on the dish has a spare output port, this being something which can be verified by looking up at where the existing cable enters the LNB and observing is any threaded spigots are seen.

As far as feeding the Freesat boxes output into your system is concerned, you cannot do that in the same way as done with a Sky box as Freesat boxes do not have RF modulators, and so a separate modulator would have to be used such as the types seen on the link, and with the RF output of the modulator being fed into Sky boxes aerial in socket and the aerial connection presently on same being connected into the RF modulators aerial input socket.

Or a less costly unit that does the same job.

Graham Cole: Another point to note being that you cannot change channels on a Freesat box from a location remote to the box in the same way as done via a Sky boxes magic eye system, as the Sky box uses special circuitry to allow this to be carried out and is something that's unique to Sky boxes.

You can of course buy free standing (not connected into the box) units that allow this to be carried out on any box, but it all adds to the cost as they are considerably higher priced when compared to the relatively low cost of a magic eye.

Hi

My postcode is PE10 0TH and we usually have a good reception from both Waltham and Belmont. However after the PSB change on May29th our signal has been all over the place and yesterday, on an automatic retune we got the transmitter down near Bedford. Any reasons for this? I have also doe a manual retune for Waltham (PSB1) channel 49 and after finding it and saving it, I come out of the system and the signal reverts back to Channel 25 (Belmont).
I am currently going through a thorough default and re-installation setting.
Thanks

I live in Herne Hill, SE24, with a roof aerial, and usually receive all channels without a problem. Today the signal dropped several times on Film4 and on Yesterday - on these channels the television displayed a sign saying "weak signal" - other channels were still fine. After a few minutes, transmission returned. Could this be something to do with 4G testing in the area?

Kate: It is unlikely to be caused by 4G, the main reason for this is simple - 4G that can affect Freeview transmits at 800MHz. Your local transmitter (Crystal Palace) transmits at around 545MHz. The gap is just too great. It would be like suggesting Radio One could recieve disturbance from Radio 2. The only way you would be effected is if you where literally next door to a 4G mast which would basically cause signal overload.

This may be helpful at800.tv (no reported confirmed cases in South East London).

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.
