Freeview reception at G40 1DX


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.

Bharat: The thing that springs to mind when someone has lost all channels is that an amplifer (booster) is being used and that it has failed. The power light being illuminated is not an indication that it is functioning normally.

I can think of two reasons which at800 has stated that you aren't affected by 4G base stations operating at 800MHz:

1. There aren't any in your area.

2. You are far enough away from them that they aren't likely to pose a problem.


According to O2 Coverage Checker O2 | O2 | Network Coverage | Coverage Checker you aren't in a 4G area for its network. I would think that with 4G being the latest thing that the networks would be quick to update their coverage checkers when coverage is extended.

"3" also says you have no 4G coverage Coverage - Support - Three

Dave Lindsay:
I do use an ampliefier to boost the signal.
As long as this amplifier is connected and working I get all channels.
It does have an indication light but as you say not whether the amplifier is working.
Is there another way of checking whether this amplifier I have is actually working and not just having power thus the red light?
Thanks

Bharat: Bypass it and see if you get any picture.

There are two types of amplifier:

1. Ones where the mains electricity goes directly into the amplifier.

2. Ones - often referred to as "mast head" amplifiers - which have a separate power supply.

In the case of type number 2, the power supply could be mistaken for an amplifier itself. The power supply connects to the aerial lead and feeds a low voltage up the aerial lead to the amplifier which is usually on the roof (or in the loft).

If you have type number 2 then you would need to bypass the amplifier. Removing the power supply alone would leave you with the amplifier still connected and an amplifier with no power going into it will give little or nothing out.

If you are using an amplifier in order to split the feed to different rooms then connect the incoming aerial feed to one of the feeds out to a room. Then go to that room and see if you have a picture. In order to do this you could potentially require an adaptor, depending on the gender of the connectors.

Dave Lindsay:
Thanks for the information.
I believe I have a MAST head amplifier (but could be wrong) as it has a plug that I connect to the mains, one input and two outputs with a red light indicator.

I basically, take the connection from the wall as an input to the amplifier and take the output into the TV.

This has been working for the last year until now.

Many Thanks

When you mean bypass

Bharat: The make an model number of the device should allow me to work out what it is.

I will explain what I mean by "bypass" with knowledge of the model.

Bharat: I gather it's this model here:

Commtel White 2 Way High Gain Antenna Amplifier (1 in 2 out). Blister

That is not a masthead amplifier; it is type 1 as described previously.

By bypassing it I'm talking about removing it. So rather than having the aerial cable come from the aerial socket, into the amplifier and then out into the TV, run the aerial lead from the aerial socket to the TV (or box, e.g. recorder if you have one).

If you installed the amplifier so as to receive digital television before switchover then it probably isn't needed now because the signals are much stronger.

That is the one I have.

I have tried to use it without the amplifier and still receive no channels (bypass).

Will the Stockland Hill transmitter serving Exeter and East Devon ever be allocated Full HD broadcasts, or we only able to receive CBBC HD and BBC Three HD. If so I think the BBC is going to irritate a lot of people when they shout about watching BBC Four HD, BBC News HD etc.

Bharat: If you've tried another television or a set-top box in place of the TV that is registering no signal then this rather suggests as though it's something between your aerial and your wall socket. Do the obvious visual checks where you can.

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.
