Freeview reception at CT4 6RH


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.

Steve H.:

Your location is fine, you even have a choice of two Tyne Tees main transmitters!
I would expect your aerial to be pointing at the Bilsdale transmitter fractionally S of SE (bearing 144 degrees) and getting a Local multiplex on UHF C30 with the Middlesbrough local station at LCN7 in your EPG.

If however it's pointing fractionally N of NW (bearing 324 degrees) at the Pontop Pike transmitter, you'd get the Newcastle local station, multiplex on C33. Also Pontop Pike was on Planned Engineering last week with "Possible weak signal".

It's possible your set's memory needs clearing, I'd suggest you do a retune as follows -
Unplug the aerial and do an automatic retune which should clear all previously stored channels as nothing should be found. Switch the set off for at least 10 minutes.
Plug the aerial back in, switch on and don't let it do an auto-retune if you have a manual tune option.

If you're getting Bilsdale, the UHF channels are C27, C24, C21, C43, C46, C40, C55, C30
If it's Pontop Pike, the UHF channels are C39, C42, C45, C32, C34, C35, C55, C33
both in the order PSBs 1-3, COMs 4-7, Local.

For which programmes/channels are on which multiplex, see Channel listings | Freeview

BL1 6ET, no signal for 2 days on any channel. Can't retune as it finds nothing available.
Had aerial engineer out but can't find any problem.
What next?

Craig:

Well the signals from Winter Hill should be blowing your windows out! I assume from what you say, the aerial engineer has said the signal arrives at your coax plug at the back of the TV?
If not, and he's only checked to an aerial socket wall plate, then you need to check/try another flylead between the wall-plate and direct to the TV - not via any other equipment.

If you have other equipment eg. a PVR/DVR is that playing back to your TV? Is it recording and can then playback to your TV? If both of those are true then it suggests your TV's tuner may be locked up or faulty. Have a look through the menus and find a "Reset" (usually to factory settings) the see if you can set it all up again and tune the channels.

If you still have issues after that, post back with details about the various checks and any other equipment.

The flat I've moved into doesn't have a coaxial wall box, it looks like the previous tenant had it removed to wire a Virgin media cable in its place. I'm thinking of trying an indoor aerial but the window nearest the TV (south facing, 1st floor) overlooks a courtyard surrounded by a tall brick building (to the extent that I have to really crane my neck to see the sky and get no direct sunlight!). Is it even worth trying an indoor solution?

Steven E:

That will depend on location and strength of the signal. We need a full postcode to look at the predicted reception to get some feel for this.

Other than that, does this block of flats have a communal aerial system? If so, perhaps the aerial cable is disconnected and there behind the virgin media outlet, I assume there is some sort of outlet the way you've worded you remark?

Firstly - apologies for the double post - I was in the Mendip region when I added all this, rather than my area, if someone could delete it from there (I couldn't see a way to remove the original). Now, sorry if this is one of those impossible to answer questions, but here goes. We've recently moved into a different house, in Glossop, SK13 8ED, and are having very occasional reception problems. In decent weather everything is good but with really heavy rain we get blocking and, more rarely, break-up. I remember the previous owners mentioning that the aerial and all cabling were replaced not long before it went up for sale, so it's less than a year old. The aerial would seem to be pointing to Winter Hill (it's definitely not pointing to the local repeater, we get far too many channels) and from ground level looks solidly mounted. We've tried your re-tuning suggestions and checked the cable joins to the best of our abilities. No difference. A more technical friend suggested that the cable used for the install isn't the best and we could change the internal run for a higher quality one. From where it enters the house to the tv is around a 15m run and the cable is marked up as ''RG6/U 19.5dB/100m @860 Mhz''. Do you think there would be any value in changing this section? We could do without the expense of getting someone out to check/swap bits at the moment especially as the problem only rarely occurs. Thanks for any help. Tracey.
