anyone else getting lots of bit errors in s12 area? my freeview seems to be getting lots of intereference since about 2-3 weeks ago. Some channels, mainly the 5 ones, disappear altogether at night time. Aerial only been up 12-18months. Got 2 tv's off a mast head amp setup (think thats what it is), both get same troubles..... flicking lines, break up of picture, blips in sound, out of sync pic with voice etc, on all channels all times of day
have done a signal check on tvs, its v good at 80-85, but everytime there is some interefence the bit error meter jumps up to between 1 and 5 ?? i have tried plugging the amplified into a different mains socket, and running just 1 lead plugged in at a time, turning off other electrical devices, heating etc to no avail, i dont think its interference from inside, coud it be the cabling etc? anything else i can try before getting someone out to go up there? :help:
ps its an outdoor aerial
Could be water ingress at the mast, possibly?
Failing that I'd suggest you borrow an air rifle and shoot the birds that are roosting up there :)
dont usually see any birds on it. they prefer the warmer chiney pots :)
I live in S20, and get the very same problem. Have to re tune the tv every week or so to get 5, 4+1, E4 etc back. No idea why, started getting problem in last few weeks.
My daughter says she knows two ariels that got married- reckoned the wedding wasn't very good but the reception was brilliant......:huh:
well you have completely blinded me with techno stuff! but as a very simple person with simple tellys! i too am having loads of problems....i live just below the HUGE mask at the top of lydgate and in 40 yrs have never had the need for a "proper" ariel .. i just have those little ones that sit on or near the tv...in one room i have bt vision and that has been dreadfull as you say for 2 or 3 weeks, and in another room have a sky box but just get the free chanels and that too is playing up....i havent had any problems before ???
My name is james .
the problem you have could be very simple.
Please give me a call anytime or you can have a look at my website www.aboveallaerials.com
I've tried several Freeview boxes at 4 different addresses and this has happened to them all from time to time. Freeview seems to be an unreliable service.
old jokes are the best lol
My daughter says she knows two ariels that got married- reckoned the wedding wasn't very good but the reception was brilliant......:huh:I heard of someone who was walking down the street and was hit by the aerial on a van, he went to hospital and was told it was the worst case of vanaerial disease they had ever seen.
Does this mean that no one is able to tell me if the bird on jeremy kyle this morning had been unfaithfull in the previous two years before, the year she did the lie detector for? It was at this point that my freeview went daft...im at arbourthorne...its happening everywhere!
