Freeview reception at AB39 2LU

Terrain between AB392LU 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.

What do the map symbols mean?

Patrick: Unfortunately you appear to be out of range for reception of the Brighton local mux, Digital UK does not show this mux at all within the table for predicted reception at your location.

Over the last 3 days Freeview has changed - Retune does not work, volume change no longer appears on screen, program details are no longer available, etc
I have 2 sets with separate Goodman GD11 FVZS2 set top boxes and both show the same faults. The aerial and connections appear to be OK. Reception of stations is still OK however.

What is happening ?

John Butler: I know what you mean, since my Goodmans box has frozen and sometimes refuses to react to the remote on and off for the last three weeks. Firstly, I don't think its a software problem, since I doubt that the software has ever been updated. However, its not impossible that something with the signal has slightly changed, and thrown the box - it certainly seems to happen on some channels more than others.

Secondly, like you, signal strength is perfect, so its not a matter of a dodgy feed.

My cure is to normally pull out the power lead at the back of the box, which resets it. However, it sometimes freezes a minute later, so a 'mains reset' is not a total solution.

I'm waiting for the retune on the 3rd, and if its not OK by then, I'm just going to buy another box (although they all seem to be by Vestral..). But my advice would be to spend as little money as possible if you are going to replace them (if you can't take them back to the shop) - there is no point in spending good money after bad.

John B,
I have had the same problem with my Goodmans box, for a long time now, unplugging the mains seems to work OK but it does happen again, I suspect there is something slightly faulty with the box. I just keep on wit the same procedure and will await a compete failure and then replace. On one occasion it failed completely and I lost a lot of recordings but now it seems to work better and I can get more recordings on the drive, but I went through a complete reset and also uploaded the software again and it does seem to work better.
