Freeview reception at GL15 4TU


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.

RDD: You could do what I've done, and have for some years - split the feeds from the wall. I originally did it when it turned out that my PVR was much more sensitive than the freeview box, after getting a new aerial.

One of the reps at work (who'd formerly been a TV installer) kindly made up a set for me, but its easy enough yourself.A decent bit of coax out of the wall socket, then a good quality splitter, then two cables off that, one to the PVR and one to the TV. Mine has F-fittings, but whatever works.

Then you can vary the attenuation seperately, and looping through isn't an issue. I got a variable one, but it didn't seem to do much, so I got some from Amazon (the same as these https://www.maplin.co.uk/…59p) which fit into one another, so you can buy perhaps a 3db, a 5db and so on, and put them in series to get the right level.

The trouble with a masthead amp is that you can't just switch it off (my new house has one), but at least you can dampen it down.

MikeB:
Thanks for the suggestion. My concern is that splitting at the wall will lower the signal to the DVR which is already at circa 55% . However this could be due to the tuners of the DVR being less sensitive than the tuner of the HDTV..

However, I will give it a try and see what happens, I think I have enough bits a pieces to rig your suggestion up.
I will let you know. Thanks.

XIAO: Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV and set top box?
