Freeview reception at SA2 0LR


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.

Hi, My Humax PRV 9300 320GB HDD lost all groups during a mains shutdown. I am in the Winter Hill area (Southport PR8 3QH). An automatic retune gives me Wales which is not what the TV is tuned to. For a manual retune what Group numbers do I need.

Can I use an indoor aerial at Postcode SK179AG to receive Freeview

David Evans: Indoor aerials are normally a bit rubbish, but since your just 1km from the Burbage light transmitter, and 3km from Buxton, you might be perfectly fine. Ofcourse if you want more that the light transmitter channels, you going to need a bigger boat!

Peter Darrigan : A Humax 9300 should not lose anything previously stored unless it has been retuned whilst no signal is being received via the aerial.

However, the Mux channel numbers applicable to Winter Hill are as follows /

C50 (BBC) - C59 (ITV1 etc) - C58 (ITV3 etc) - C49 (Pick TV etc) - C55 (4Music etc).

A 9300 is not capable of receiving HD channels, likewise not included in the list.

I have a humax over 9300 and when watching recorded programmes it says scrambled signal on the screen and the picture freezes. I have been advised to get the frequency. 6 digit numbers for my property and change it in the installation and retune manually . Where do I find the frequency I should have for my address? Any advice gratefully received

Jane Dawson : The procedure you have referred to of using manual tuning rather than auto-tune is quite unnecessary at you location of being at just over 6 miles away from the high powered Emley Moor transmitter, the manual tuning procedure being more applicable for viewers residing in areas where auto-tuning their TV's or boxes results in receiving Freeview from more than one station, one of usually being inferior.

If the problem referred to is only happening on recorded programmes? then all this means is that the signal was suffering from some form of interference at the time the recording was made, and which might even have been down to engineering work being carried out at the transmitter at the time.

If on the other hand the problem referred to is a frequent occurrence? then this could be caused by an overly powerful signal being received, you can check this by selecting either BBC1 or ITV1 on the Humax followed by pressing: Menu - System - Signal detection, this will then indicate the strength and quality of the signal being received, normal indications being 100% quality and with the strength at around 80 - 90%.

Further advice based on feedback received.

jim: Your "no signal" problem is almost certainly being caused by some fault having occurred within your own aerial system rather than anything connected with work being carried out in your area, you should check all plug and socket connections including jumper leads etc, and if you are using any form of signal booster try bypassing it by connecting the aerial directly into the TV or box you are using.

Also, in cases such as yours its always prudent to try and check with your neighbour, or anyone else local to you for the purpose determining if they are also suffering a similar problem as yourself.

Hi, wondering if anyone could help.

We have had a new living room put onto the side of the house recently and transferred the Sky set top box from the old living room to the new one, all wires were put in etc. and it works absolutely fine.

Of course though, we have contacted Sky for a new Sky HD+ box for the old living room too, although there are a few problems.

1) The old sky box in the old living room had a huge HDMI problem. We had to install a horrid looking short HDMI lead from the sky box to the TV (which was wall mounted) and the wire was showing and looked ugly; this was because the HDMI leads we had installed that went from the cupboard with the set top box, up to the back of the TV on the wall mount (these were very long cables that went 'behind' the wall to stop them showing) but were apparently too long and we had no signal at all from them (we were told by another installer that if we used a bog standard blu ray player or games console, they would work fine but it's just the sky box that didn't seem to like them) Am I right I can by a HDMI amplifier to overcome this problem for when I install the new sky box?

2) Yes, you guessed it ... the old living room had a full working RF2 remote sensor going to an upstairs television and I understand these new set top boxes don't have any RF out, so I've discovered I can by an IO link to power this remote sensor and provide a picture to the upstairs television (and at the same time, provide a Freeview aerial in input to the Sky box) the only problem is is I want to send an RF output to both the upstairs TV and the living room TV (for freeview), if I use a bog standard RF splitter placed on the RF2 out socket on the IO link, am I right in saying the remote sensor link may suffer from 'too low power'?

Thanks for any help

Puppy: 1. The "HDMI amplifier" you refer to is a repeater. The problem is that the signal isn't loud enough to get to the other end. A repeater "listens" and then repeats (hence its name) what's heard.

2. With all the talk of high definition I don't understand why it is that people still want to use an RF analogue signal whose quality is poorer than scart and whose sound is mono! When video recorders were first invented there was no way of getting the picture onto the TV except to generate an analogue signal. Then along came scart and subsequently HDMI which are superior. Yet people subscribe to HD services and are content to watch them in analogue TV quality. Bizarre!

Anyway, if the living room TV which requires Freeview but no analogue output from the Sky box ("RF2") then could you put the splitter on the "RF" output or before the Sky box and then this would avoid this potential issue?
