Freeview reception at B31 2QJ

Terrain between B312QJ 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.

When you click on a diagram, you will see map with the location selected shown with this symbol: .Internet Explorer 9+, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari required.Internet Explorer 9+, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, and Safari required.

We obtain Freeview services via the Mendip transmitter. All was OK prior to the major retune required on 3 September, but since then we have experienced some problems.
Intermittent signal break-up and pixilation is evident on some recordings on our Humax PVR, and more recently the Humax has not recorded some chosen programmes. Our Samsung TV now does not seem to recognise its connection to the Humax PVR (i.e. via HDMI2), unless the PVR is physically switched on. I have checked for updates for the TV and PVR, but all seems up to be up to date in that respect. Any ideas what the problem may be, please?

Sabrina: Thank you. The funny thing is since yesterday it is fine and the first time i have been able to access the red button in weeks with no freezing etc, keeping fingers crossed but something has definitely changed in the last couple of days. we have the same problems on a tv in the back room that has no roof aerial!n I am using a Goodmans digibox.

Hi there first time her. My parents live in Uk and their Reciever just burnt out. In any case I was looking at the TivuSat system for them. I thought Humax was a safe bet. Can anyone recommend any other system. Generally I was hoping for a nice user friendly system. Easy to use etc.
Thanks

We get our Freeview services via the Angus 9 transmitter.
All was OK prior to the major retune on 3 September. Until 15th September everything was fine, but we have since experienced some problems.
Intermittent signal break-up and pixelation is evident on all the BBC channels, but other channels mostly unaffected.
It's been like this for a week, and although we thought it was due to the bad weather, we have had good conditions today and there is no change.
Any ideas what the problem may be, please?

Lee Baker: Check that it is tuned to Angus transmitter for BBC services and not Tay Bridge.

Bring up the signal strength screen on BBC One. It should be on C60 (786MHz) and not C41 (634MHz). If it's tuned to Tay Bridge and there's no manual tuning available then you might be able to do the unplugging aerial trick so it doesn't "see" the Tay Bridge signal when it does its scan.

Hi there,

My sony kdl-26v4500 will not pick up channel 64, despite me doing a digital retune several times and a factory reset. The tv has not been in use for about 4 weeks and has not been plugged in to anything not even an aerial. Yet what is strange is that a tv upstairs can receive channel 64 no problems. They both use the same aerial which is mounted on the chimney and according to my sony kdl-26v4500 the signal strength is green which I take to mean strong. Please help!

Please post a question, answer or commentIf you have Freeview reception problems before posting a question your must first do this Freeview reset procedure then see: Freeview reception has changed, Single frequency interference, and Freeview intermittent interference.

If you have no satellite signal, see Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'

If you have other problems, please provide a full (not partial) postcode (or preferably enter it in box at the top right) and indicate where if aerial is on the roof, in the loft or elsewhere.
