published on UK Free TV

The problem could be one of:

- the aerial has been moved or damaged;

- the cables or connectors that connect the digibox to the aerial are damaged;

- the digibox has broken.

If you have a "spare" digibox you use this to test the aerial connection. Can you still watch analogue TV OK?

david brydon: Assuming the the Virgin TV feed is fine, then its the aerial or splitter. If the splitter is powered, then it could be the power supply. Think about your aerial - its on the roof in all weathers, exposed to all the elements. Joints let in moisture, cables get worn or frayed, or just corroded.

You hav'nt given us a postcode, so we have no idea what sort of signal your supposed to get, but it might be more than fine, so that you might be able to replace a powered splitter with an unpowered one. Check from the splitter box and back to the aerial.

I moved into a new build 6 months ago so had a company come round to install a new aerial . Our upstairs smaller tv works perfect however our downstairs telly will never hold the channels . I have brought a digital box hoping this would help but it hasn't . If we hold the aerial cable going into the digital box at a certain angle we can get the channels but letting go we loose all channels or they become to blury to watch

kay: This would tend to suggest the fault is in the aerial cable. If it has a wall socket and separate lead, then what happens when you use a different lead?

Living in SA667PN, I used to get all TV channels, and now I don't get any.. always says it's not tuned. Also my mobile signal has disappeared. All this has happened in the last few months.

monotones: The mobile and TV signals have nothing to do with other, unless your in a dip which means you get no signal of any kind.

Your postcode shows that your awrial should point almost straight North (20 degrees) and pick up Preseli pretty well, since your really close. If your not tuned in properly or not getting anything, sounds like your aerial system has a problem - broken wire, etc.

Patricia: Look at your manual - your TV simply isn't getting a signal. Could be as simple as the lead coming out of the back of the TV. On the other hand, your aerial system but have a break.

Although my DVD recorder was receiving and recording from Freeview last night when I switched on the TV All dvb channels said ' no signal' TV is working as the Freesat channels are fine. Set Auto tune and got back all the Freeview ( dvb ) channels back except ITV and C 4 are the Welsh Channels. I'm in Barrow in Furness
