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).

Ben:

You appear to be in a particularly difficult location, valleys are not helpful to TV reception especially is they do not enable sight of a transmitter directly. There are three possible transmitters around you, but all are 'hidden' by the valley. You've tried Stocjkland Hill and Mendip, the other is Huntshaw Cross - but that is to the west so again 'hidden' by the valley.

The only suggestion I have is to try raising your aerial as high as possible - but make sure it is safe. There is no guarantee that it will solve the problem though.

Aerials receive best in the direction of its main lobe to the front of the aerial, but they always have side lobes that can receive some signals - though usually not as well. That would explain what you are seeing with the aerial aimed in the general direction of SW - where there is no transmitter! It can only be a reflected signal which will be very variable and unreliable.

My brother lives in South Molton and gets good reception from Huntshaw Cross but he is not in a valley.

Linda Goss: Service will be restored when the engineering work is finished for the day. Do not attempt to retune.

Hi, I've lost all Freeview channels, a few weeks ago (prior to that everything worked fine for years) but only now using a day off to try to diagnose problem. Booster is powered OK, but have connected tv direct to aerial in loft as part of system test.

I have tried to retune, with TV cable direct from loft aerial, using every combination of settings out of desperation (although I do know which settings are correct).

My aerial points to South Caradon Hill, as it always has.

Any suggestions please????

Thanks

Mick Caulkin:

Your location is not ideal for reception from any transmitter, but Huntshaw Cros appears to give a better chance of good reception - despite the hill between you and the transmitter less than 5km from you. There is also a similar hill between you and Caradon Hill. There are no reported problems at either transmitter, suggesting that you have a fault in your aerial system. Please check all connections and cables carefully and ensure there is no corrosion/oxidation of the plug/socket contacts.Also check for damage to the cable and ensure there are no signs of water ingress. If you have an aerial amplifier check that it is working correctly.

Is it possible to email me the operating instructions for my Luxor model LUX-PVR500-690 dtr? I did contact asda where it was bought in 2011 and they suggested you might be able to help, because they don't keep the records that go back that far. It hasn't been used for a while but it still works and I wantto give to my grandaughter for her sons bedroom. Any information you can send would be most appreciated. The man at asda said he thought either the Thomson or the Wharfedale DTR were very similar and one of those manuals might be able to give me some information. Look forward to your comments, kindest regards peter naylor

Shane Baker:

You are right on the edge of the predicted reception area for the Mendip Transmitter. Further, you have some hills nearby between you and the transmitter that may be disrupting the signal path. The prediction suggests you should be getting reliable reception at your general location, so please check all the connections and cables in your aerial system. Include in that check the unplugging and refitting of all coaxial plugs and sockets.

You should also check the signal strengths of all the multiplexes. They are on channels: 49, 54, 58, 48, 33, 52, 36 and 35. A wideband aerial is needed for good reception of all the channels.

You will need to search the web for the User Manual for that equipment. This website does not hold any such information.

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.
