Freeview reception at DH2 2NG


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.

in order to receive HD channels, do we need special aerials? We receive all other Freeview channels, with good reception, DL3 0GB is our post code.

Val Grimshaw: No. What you do need though is a TV or box with a Freeview HD (DVB-T2) tuner in. Standard definition signals use DVB-T.

Some older HD TVs were "HD Ready" (and some current ones may be - not sure about that) which meant that they could show HD pictures but didn't have the means to receive the signals.

SO50 7LQ. I have a digital aerial (upgraded in Dec '13) fitted on the roof. Problems with some channels but not all. Good signal on most popular channels; BBC, ITV, 4 & 5. Watching ITV3 now with heavy pixalation. Same on Dave, 4Music and quite a few others.
Main TV runs through BT Vision. All units re-tuned. Can't view BT Sport as heavy pixalation.
Good signal strength and quality for BBC but low quality for the pixalated channels.
Frustrating having some working and not others.
Any ideas?

Andrew Curtis: As you appear to be using Rowridge for your Freeview reception the question would be, if when you had the aerial upgraded did the installer mount it vertically? as the COM channels radiate on 200 Kw on vertical transmissions whereas its only 50 Kw on horizontal.

Andrew Curtis : In addition to that said, the only downside to the aerial being mounted vertically is that you will likely be unable to receive the new additional HD channels on COM7 (C31) on 23.4Kw and eventually COM8 (C37) also on the same power, as well as the new local channel (C29) on 10Kw starting in June 2014, as all three only radiate on horizontal transmissions.

Andrew Curtis:

JB38 is correct, however

If reception is difficult in your location you may well want to sacrifice the new HD channels on HP, making your system aerial VP will give a far superior signal.

With the strength the new channels will be radiated at such low levels some people may need to go back to large high gain aerials just to try and receive them.

With VP we can now install smaller aerials far less likely to be impacted by high winds.

When I have my sky magic eye attached to my new TV I loose almost all of the freeview channels. This is a new build property and was set-up to use sky magic eye use in all rooms. The aerial and associated equipment is all less than 18 months old.
At the most I will have only one television using the magic eye at any one time.
Why is this happening? Do you have any advice to overcome this problem, please?
Thank you.

TN147JR. Hi We lost our aerial in the storm and have muddled through till no. It's an old aerial although we got the freeview HD channels (have a new TV), so what would be the best aerial to replace with given current and future channel development.
I think we are on the edge of the Crystal Palace transmitter range and our village is high on a hill.
Many thanks

just recently I'm getting poor reception and a reduced signal strength on both my TVs, which are served by a common aerial. Several stations are affected. My closest transmitter is Emley Moor and this has always been the station picked up by auto scan. But I am now getting BBC1 preferentially from Bilsdale and a poor signal strength across the board. Is there a problem with the Emley moor transmitter?

SL4 3FJ. I have had no freeview reception in the last 7 days. I couldn't contact my neighbours, so I don't know if they are experimenting the same problems, and I don't know what to do if the problem is coming from the building aerial. What should I do?? Thank you
