TV Reception Issues

TV Reception Issues

There is always a steady stream of complaints about poor reception pixelation and often not being able to receive 'one' channel including 2 7 9 10 and SBS.

Feedback often has friends and neighbours experiencing the same issue. Frustration because it worked before some channels work mornings are ok but not evenings one show is fine but not another. Logically if there was an issue with one channel there would be thousands of complaints not the odd one or two.

Digital television is streamed Australia wide at a uniform strength signal. Reception issues invariably result at the receivers end with an aerial tuner television set neighbour location or weather.

A retune (see below) will resolve most issues with receivers. Old and misaligned aerials old wiring and plugs bad area reception are some other causes.
