By providing a full postcode (such as W1A 1AA), national grid reference (for example SE123456) or latitude, longitude pair (like 54, -0.5) this page will provide a map, terrain plot and detailed information of the location showing the UK and RoI television transmitters that it is possible you receive Freeview, Freeview HD, Youview, BT Vision and Saorview from.
 

(Don't know your postcode? Find it at Post Office Postcode finder).

UK Free TV uniquely shows you transmitter coverage maps, aerial to transmitter terrain plots, the closest 10 mobile phone masts (for possible 4G-at-800 interference) as well as tabulated information (sorted by direction, by received signal strength, by frequency, by service names or by transmitter name).

These predictions are based upon a rooftop aerial and depend on the suitability of the aerial, the distance to the transmitters, the power of their signals, the postcode area, and local terrain.

@StevensOnln1: thank you for the advice. i did that few times yesterday but seeing "No Signal" and hence the "Add" button is disabled. Any other option? Appreciated. It will be great for my 1 yr old son.

Regards,
Iftekhar

I live in the Bromsgrove area at Elmbridge served but the Bromsgrove transmitter....iTS CRAP!!! lost all of chnl 44 giving ITV3,Drama, to name but two, I think the works on the M5 by HE have had a major unpredicted effect on this transmitter with new gantries and electronic signs so close to the physical structure causing interference to its power ,all other channels are at 100% to say this situation is frustrating is a massive understatement when one considers that we are within 30 miles of Britain's so called second city!!! Birmingham Incidentally I am aware that High Pressure weather conditions can be a problem, but, is this not the 21st century, not the 18th!!!

Aerial positioned on chimney and l seem to be unable to get a picture on the free view system on all stations it just suddenly dropped out on Thursday afternoon 16 March. Have tried another tv (maybe lower power required) and can get a picture on that tv . The freesat box on the dish reception is fine so has the power output been reduced on the transmitter?

Mrs Parrott: You should have excellent reception at your location, and transmitters do not suddenly reduce power of their transmissions without warning, so it is likely that the fault is with your home. And Freesat is transmitted in an entirely different way, so thats not applicable.

Assuming you have one aerial and two TV's running off it, check the signal strength (and that they are actually tuned to the correct transmitter). If its fine on the one working, and presumably zero or close enough on the one thats not, then logically, its a problem between where the aerial feed splits and the TV itself. Classic problem is that the aerial lead in the back of the TV comes loose or falls out.

Mark Cowmeadow:

TV transmission does not work as you seem to think.

Please would you gove a full post code of your locvation so we can check the receptions conditions there. Would you also give us the signal strength readings.

Is there a problem with the Freeview transmitter. I can receive BBC1 via Freeview but no other channels.

Sandra Church: There are no reported faults on the Crystal Palace transmitter. Given that it covers most of London, there would be hundreds of people complaining if there was, so start by checking all the cables and connectors behind your TV looking for anything that has become loose or damaged.

MikeB: Perhaps you should also mention the possible problem using simple signal splitters; most are simply a simple soldered junction o three TV type sockets which result in impedance mismatching and consequent signal loss. Even the better designed ones of hybrid transformer configuration need to be treated with care and each "output" port terminated (eg, connected to a TV). In either case, if not terminated it is possible that "stub effect" comes into play if/when an "output" TV lead is a quarter wavelength long (or odd multiple thereof) it acts as a short circuit. Obviously this extreme effect will not affect all channels but it may explain why some channels appear to be received OK and others don't.

I hope I haven't "overegged the pudding" or am "teaching granny to suck eggs". Whatever, it's sometimes better to look more deeply into alleged aerial problems than simply blame loose connections, etc.

response for jb38-
The combo receiver is labelled as "HD DVB-T2&S2 COMBO", sold by eBay site 'ukdigital15'. However, they are now selling a differently labelled combo.

GeordieLad:

Any passive aerial splitter will contain 3 resistors of 37 Ohms configured in a 'star' formation, one leg being the input and the others the outputs. I know of no splitter that is as basic as you describe. The main issue with passive splitters is the impedance mismatch you mention and the standing wave problems if the cabels are an unfortunate length. Plus the degree of signal loss with any such passive arrangement.

An active splitter would normall isolate each output so leaving one or more unterminated by a TV would not be a problem.

Your comment please
Please post a question, answer or commentIf you have Freeview reception problems before posting a question your must first do this Freeview reset procedure then see: Freeview reception has changed, Single frequency interference, and Freeview intermittent interference.

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.
