Freeview reception at ME7 1YF

Terrain between ME71YF and Freeview masts

For reliable and stable Freeview reception, you need an unobstructed path between the TV aerial on your roof and the digital TV transmitter.

The diagrams below show the transmitters you can get a signal from - in order from best to worst. The blue line tests the line-of-sight between an aerial 10 metres above ground level (the line is red if there is an obstruction in the line-of-sight). You may be able to improve reception by raising the aerial higher - for safety's sake consult a reputable aerial installer if you need rooftop access. See below the diagrams for advanced options including selecting the receiver aerial height.

The terrain information (from Ordnance Survey and GIS) does not include forestation (where leaf cover changes with the seasons) or city buildings. The line-of-sight line can appear curved as this straight line moves over the Earth's surface.

An amplifier is very unlikely to help as it would seem that your comment about the trees is most significant. Possibly resiting the aerial so that is can 'look' past the trees might help, or maybe a longer pole so that it looks over the trees - but that may become a problem again as the trees grow taller.

If you provide a post code, or that of a very near shop perhaps, then the reception and topographical maps can be used to ascertain the locality of trees, hills, etc and maybe determine which is a suitable transmitter for you.

Is it just me or are some stations, ITV and Dave especially doing something to there frame rate? Its like they suddenly slow down then catch up all in a split second, I get the same it I watch Sky or freeview and always on the same channels.

Sharon collins: Is your TV plugged into a freeview box, or is there one built in?

If its plugged into a freeview box in one room, and the same in another, then the scart connection/cable might be playing up - all the pins have to connect properly, and if they dont, you can then get everyone being green on the screen or loss of sound.

If its not, then thats weird! If the TV works fine plugged into a normal TV aerial in one room, but not another, it doesn't make sense. If the signal was bad in one room, then it would be just the sound, it would be whole channels being a bit dodgy.

Sharon collins: You should try carrying out a "manufacturers reset" on the TV, as what you have reported could possibly be due to a glitch having occurred in the TV's processing circuitry.

By the way, "manufacturers reset" is also known as "default setting" / "first time installation" etc.
