Andy: get back the people who fitted the equipment you have paid for expensive equipment so you should expect it to work. If I had done the job I don't leave till it's right and don't take payment till the job is finished.

Tim H: You should carry out a test on the outlet socket used by your main TV by temporarily connecting the bedroom TV into it and selecting channel 60.

If the bedroom TV has a signal checking facility? check the strength of C60 whilst its still connected into the bedroom outlet, and use this for comparisons purposes against the indication obtained when its connected into the main sets outlet.

Of course, if your main TV is moveable? you could always try the test in reverse.

Sharon: The most common answer to the issue of no channels being received is where a signal amplifier (booster) is being used and it failing or its power being turned off. This situation includes a communal aerial system, such as found in a block of flats.

Guys thanks again for the info.

I called the guy back and explained what had been happening and also explained that I had sort help from this web site, anyway he has fitted a 12dB attenuator, he reassures me this should do the trick.

He also informed me that the reading on his meter was 90dB at the aerial, this don't mean much to me but he said this was very high!

Had TV on now for 2 hours and haven't seen any signs of the picture breaking up or horrid noises, fingers crossed!

I never thought for one min that we would be getting to much signal, we live so far away from the Winter Hill transmitter I automatically thought it would be week, after reading MikeB reply and link it got me thinking!

Anyway so far so good! cheers guys for all your help, really appreciate it.

Andy: All I can say is if he has 90 dbuv at the aerial there is no need for an amplifier, with that amount of signal you could use an 8 way splitter and get great signal on all points.

tim: I have put in my correct postcode - which is near Reading. The freeview transmitters being shown relevant to this area are in Scotland and northern Ireland.. So something is wrong!

tim: Selecting and clicking on "digitaluk trade" under your posting indicates that your area is served by the Hannington transmitter

Maybe you could explain as far as exactly what is not working?

jb38:
Thanks for the response. Yes, I have already done this and the main TV, when connected to the aerial socket in the bedroom, picks up both missing multiplexes and the signal is good. However, one slight complication is that the Sony DVD/HD recorder is connected to the same aerial socket as the main TV and it can pick up channel 60 OK (is isn't HD so it can't pick up HD channels). The aerial lead used to go into the back of the DVD/HD recorder and then out to the TV. I've tried the TV connected directly to the aerial socket (disconnecting the DVD/HD recorder completely), but this doesn't make any difference. I've now got an unpowered splitter with a 1000 MHz filter in the socket feeding the DVD/HD and TV separately. I didn't use a powered one as this would probably amplify the bad signal. The DVD/HD player still picks up Channel 60, but the TV still doesn't - or at least the picture is awful. Any other thoughts?
