Signal in Kington (HR5, near the church) is rubbish even with a boostbox, it regularly drops out completely or registers as 'bad signal' - Any way to improve reception? Will transmitters be improved?
KNibz's 1 post
KNibz: Which transmitter does your aerial face? Have you confirmed that you are tuned to that transmitter and not another one?
There may be two possibilities at your location: the easiest being Kington, which carries only PSB channels and is on the hill on Brickyard Road, and Sutton Coldfield.
For each of the following, bring up the signal strength screen and ensure that it is tuned to the UHF channel of your chosen transmitter:
PSB1 | BBC One | Kington=C44 | Sutton Coldfield=C43
PSB2 | ITV | Kington=C41 | Sutton Coldfield=C46
PSB3 | BBC One HD | Kington=C47 | Sutton Coldfield=C40
COM4 | ITV3 | Sutton Coldfield=C42
COM5 | Pick TV | Sutton Coldfield=C45
COM6 | Film4 | Sutton Coldfield=C39
See this page for a list of services by multiplex (i.e. which ones belong to each PSB/COM):
DTG :: DTT Services by Multiplex
If your aerial is vertical (elements up/down) and directed to Kington and you have COM channels tuned in, then they are coming from elsewhere and so expect reception to be poor.
If your aerial is horizontal (elements flat) and directed to Sutton Coldfield, but your TV has tuned in Kington (for PSBs), then you need to correct this.
If you put the booster on in an effort to improve matters and you find that your TV is tuned incorrectly, then it might be a good idea to remove the booster.
