Best Tv Aerial For Barnsley
When choosing an aerial it is important to consider several factors. Firstly, where the nearest transmitter is situated in relation to where you live, the further away your home is the weaker the signal will be. This will determine which aerial would be most suitable for your property.
One of the simplest indicators of how good your signal will be would be is to check the position and type of aerial that your neighbours have. Sometimes when the neighbouring aerials point in several different directions it can be an indication that the signal is poor. Also, the type of aerial will indicate signal strength too, High Gain aerials are used in poor signal areas and these are completely different to look at than a standard aerial.
The most commonly used aerials for supporting digital and HD channels are periodic logas and 32 element aerials. However, TV Aerials Barnsley can advise that if you’re doing more than 3 rooms I would install the 52 element aerial to ensure that the antenna is pulling in enough signal. You may pay more for an aerial but it works out less than adding an amplifier. Learn More about different TV Aerials.

Best TV Aerial Connectors Barnsley
Easy Fit Male Coax Cable Connector plug just twist and it fit. At Tv Aerials Barnsley we use Professional Looking Male ends as we try to improve the performance of the TV Signal. No tools, just twist on.
The Male Innovate Easy Fit UHF coaxial connector employs a sprung, toothed clamp type insert that makes fitting to a coaxial cable much easier than the conventional Belling-Lee connector. All TV Aerials Barnsley has to do is insert the cable with the core exposed and tighten the collar. This revolutionises the way the coaxial cable is terminated and improves performance across the 470-862MHz frequency range.
To date, TV Aerials Barnsley use F-Type connectors that are used for CATV, SATV and Digital TV in conjunction with either RG6 or RG11 cables. The copper-clad-steel inner conductor of the cable forms the inner “pin” of the connector. Although “twist-on” type connectors are available, they do not produce a reliable connection in comparison to a crimp-type connector that has been terminated with a good-quality ratchet crimping tool.
TV Aerial Cable Barnsley
TV Aerials Barnsley find the three most commonly used coaxial cable types for video applications are RG59/U, RG6/U, and RG11/U. RG59/U is available with either solid copper or copper-clad-steel centre conductor. It’s suitable for basic analogue TV aerial feeds in residential applications and for basic CCTV systems over short cable runs. The copper-clad-steel type has high tensile strength and should be used when terminating the cable with F-Type connectors.
RG6/U Quad-shield is the minimum requirement under the latest UK Standard for digital TV aerial cabling and for all TV aerial cabling for apartments/units (MATV). It is also used for the distribution of Cable TV (CATV) and Satellite TV (SATV) in residential or commercial premises across Sheffield. It features a copper-clad-steel inner conductor. Single-shield, dual-shield and tri-shield versions of RG6/U are available but do not provide adequate EMI shielding.
RG11/U Quad-shield is used for the same applications as RG6/U for either backbone cabling or for long distribution runs. It features a copper-clad-steel inner conductor. Contact TV Aerials Barnsley to have your TV Aerial checked or replaced by a professional installer.
TV aerial booster Barnsley
Sometime you will need a TV Aerial booster or know as an Amplifier. When TV Aerials Barnsley installs your TV Aerial we will take a signal test from your TV Aerial and if it’s not above 50DB we recommend a Masthead Amplifier to make sure that there is no pixelation on your TV. If you prefer you could just pick up a cheap one in one out booster boot we don’t recommend this.
Masthead and distribution amplifiers are used in television systems to increase the level of signal received at a television set. Television masthead and distribution amplifiers can produce radio signal interference if not used correctly so let TV Aerials Barnsley help you. Incorrect use or faulty amplifiers can affect broadcast television reception, mobile phone systems, and two-way radio communications systems.
A masthead amplifier can usually be seen as a small grey or black plastic box attached to the pole supporting the television aerial. There will be wires running from the aerial installed by TV Aerials Barnsley into the box and a lead running down into the house to the television set. There are other devices that look similar to masthead amplifiers. The amplifier may also be out of sight in a roof cavity.
Caravan TV Aerials Barnsley
The DIGINOVA aerial is classified as a high gain aerial. The high performance is generated via a UHF Yagi type aerial with 10 elements and a BIII and FM aerial consisting of a printed dipole, both connected to an MRD amplifying UHF (20dB), while coupling together BIII and FM. Caravan TV Aerials Barnsley have been installing to static caravans and to the caravan parks.
DIGINOVA Caravan Aerial model is an Aerial TV Aerials Barnsley likes to install on Caravans and Boats. Because of its low visual impact that, automatically, optimizes the installation. Ideal for facades, balconies, and houses. In the 790 version LTE band is filtered out through the design of the antenna. Low consumption. Its protection dome is made of UV high resistant plastic and waterproof (IP 53).
Easy installation, either for vertical or horizontal polarisation. BOSSTech adapts itself to the received signal level. When Barnsley Aerial installer fits it, he does not have to worry about the input level as the antenna guarantees the most adequate output level to the distribution network. No matter the evolution of the number of channels being received. At the antenna output, the spectrum will be: free of intermodulation, noiseless, with the best possible BER and an optimized C/N. The antenna adjusts itself to future channels.
TV aerial splitter Barnsley
To add extra points to your existing TV aerial system it is simply a matter of installing an approved quality signal splitter and cabling to the correct location. A single extra tv point can be connected to your system from as little as £49+vat. Should you be expanding your aerial system to several extra rooms then TV Aerials Barnsley do offer a discount on the second third or fourth extra cables.
It is cost effective to have any extra points installed at the same time as a new aerial is installed, simply mention to our staff how many and where the points will be installed and we will include this within the quotation for your new system. We can give a guide quote over the phone but we would need to measure the signal strength coming from your aerial to determine whether you may need a booster/amplifier, only then could we provide an accurate fixed price quote.
You can’t really split an Indoor tv aerial unless it’s a Loft aerial. Just make sure you buy the best HDTV antenna even if its an Argos TV Aerial just buy a High gain aerial to cope with the splitter loss. You can get TV Aerials Barnsley to also add a splitter to sky installations. You can split into aerial repairs, antennas, radio aerial, television aerial, outdoor aerial, tv aerial lead.

Possible causes of TV Breaking Up:
Why is my TV breaking up in Sheffield? Once you have properly installed the Aerial, changed the input on your TV to ‘Aerial’, and run a channel scan, you should be receiving at least some of your local channels. If this is not the case, the reason could be one of the following:
There is not a clear line of sight to the broadcast towers.
If hills, trees, buildings, or other geographic features are in between the broadcast towers and the Aerial, the signals might not be able to reach your Aerial. Elevating the Aerial, either by placing it in a higher location or using a taller mast, will increase the signal reception.
The goal is to achieve the most unobstructed line of sight to the broadcast towers as possible.
Troubleshooting Aerial Reception Hill Illustration 1
The signal could be lost in the coaxial cable distribution.
Why Is My TV Breaking Up?
It is important to check regularly for corrosion, loose cable fittings, or if a cable has been compromised. If you are using a splitter, this could also weaken signal strength.
Try disconnecting the splitter and running the cable directly into the TV/converter box and run a channel scan. If reception improves, a distribution amplifier is likely to be the solution.
The coaxial cable from the Aerial to the tuner could be too long.
When cable lengths reach over 100 feet, as much as 1/3 of the signal can be lost. If you require a long cable or are using a splitter, you may need a preamplifier.
You are more than 70 miles from the broadcast towers or beyond the range of the Aerial.
The curvature of the earth limits most Aerials to about 70 miles of range. Go to www.Aerialpoint.com and enter your address or zip code to ensure you are within the range of the broadcast towers in your area.
If you are over 70 miles from the broadcast tower(s), reception is possible if the appropriate equipment is used and the right conditions are present.
Faulty Digital Tuner
It doesn’t happen often, but it is possible for the tuner to be faulty on a new TV, right out of the box. The ATSC tuner is separate from the HDMI or other inputs, so the tuner would not affect any other portion of the television.
As a second step in troubleshooting, try installing the Aerial and cable to a secondary TV.
Problem: I’m receiving every channel except for one.
Possible causes Of Pixilation:
The station is broadcasting on a different frequency.
While the majority of TV stations transmit on the UHF frequency, there are some that use VHF. Although some UHF Aerials can pick up VHF signals, it is necessary to use an Aerial optimized to receive both UHF and VHF frequencies.
The transmitter for certain channels could be located at a lower elevation on the broadcast tower, or even behind other broadcast towers.
Lower elevation or obstruction by other towers can cause line-of-sight problems. UHF signals are dependent on line-of-sight for consistent reception. Change the location or elevation of the Aerial to see if the problem persists.
Problem: The picture isn’t clear or I see snow (fuzz).
Possible causes of Breaking Up On Your TV:
The TV might not have a built-in ATSC digital tuner.
Digital signals do NOT have snow! If you are seeing snow or fuzz on your TV, you are watching an analog broadcast. Typically, people with this problem don’t have an ATSC tuner built into their TV. If you have a TV that was purchased before 2007, this may apply to you.
Consult the TV’s user manual or contact the manufacturer directly to find out if the TV has a built-in ATSC digital tuner. If it does not have one, an external receiver or converter box can be purchased, so that you can use your existing TV to receive HDTV broadcasts.
The auto program or channel scan procedure was not performed correctly.
If the TV does have an internal ATSC tuner, make sure the television’s input or source is set to “BROADCAST”, “TV” or “AIR”, not “CABLE”. Once you have verified this, go into your TV’s setup menu to scan for channels.
Each television is different and different brands have varying procedures. If you are not receiving High Definition programming, consult the TV’s manual or contact the manufacturer to make sure these steps are followed correctly.
Problem: I live within 2 miles of the broadcast tower, but the signal is breaking up.
Possible Causes Of Why My TV Does Not Work:
Your TV may be receiving interfering signals.
A larger/stronger Aerial will not necessarily solve this problem. Consider moving the Aerial, making sure it is not placed near metal objects or other Aerials. If this is not successful, your signal may be too strong and may require the use of an attenuator.
Call our helpline or chat with us here using the live-chat feature on our website for an analysis of your area and installation. We may be able to offer simple solutions.
How to Boost My Digital TV Signal in Sheffield
How do i boost my Digital TV signal in Sheffield? Digital TV is far superior in quality and clarity than analogue TV. However a weak signal can sometimes cause problems with reception.
Some examples include a weak analogue signal would appear on the TV screen as a “snowy,” or grainy, picture, which may be annoying, but is still viewable. In contrast to this, a slightly weak digital signal would still be sharp and clear.
When the digital signal was too weak, it could cause the audio and video to cut in and out or disappear altogether. The best solution to either problem is to find a way to boost the incoming Aerial signal. Here are some tips for boosting a digital TV Aerial signal:
- Move the aerial to new location or height, if you’re using an indoor TV aerial. Moving it even a few inches (centimetres) can make a difference. It’s best to move it just a bit and then wait a few minutes to see if reception improves before moving it more.
- Re-aim the aerial, if you’re using an outdoor aerial. This may reduce or eliminate multipath problems. Note that outdoor aerial normally gets better reception than indoor aerial.
- Watch the signal strength meter on the digital-to-analogue converter box or television as you move or aim the aerial. Try to get the highest reading possible.
- Install a signal amplifier or booster between the aerial and receiver to increase the signal strength

Don’t have a chimney or a gable end in Sheffield?
Front or Back Wall
TV Aerial Sheffield can use the Loft
More frequently these days homeowners are opting to have their aerials installed into the loft. It is actually a good place to secure an aerial. If you can get a good signal in your loft then your aerial could last you as long as you need it as it will be protected from the elements which often cause them to fail over time. Often when there is no chimney or gable wall the loft can be the best position as it can offer almost as much height as a chimney or high wall.
Roof Penetrating Installation – Lead Flashing
Don’t have a chimney or a gable end, what is available in Sheffield? This isn’t very common, however, it is another possibility. A “pole through the roof”, or installing a mast of reasonable diameter, mounted through the roof and secured to the wooden beam in the loft. A tile is removed to allow the mast to enter the roof space, it is then replaced with a lead flashing to weatherproof the installation. Understandably this costs more than an average aerial installation.
It can provide an excellent place to install a TV aerial or satellite dish. It is very important to prevent water from penetrating the building, the top of the mast should have a bung inside to stop rainwater from running down flooding your loft.
Aerial Installation using a Tile & Slate Clamp
It is possible to mount your TV aerial to the roof without a chimney stack or pole through the roof. Using a Tile & Slate clamp that is secured to a roof tile, the weight of the tile will hold it in position. It’s not a fixing that is often used, but it can be successfully installed if there is no other option. Although only a small aerial can be mounted onto it.
Large Pole Concreted Into Ground
Not a particularly popular solution but you may be able to achieve good reception with a large pole concreted into the ground with a TV aerial mounted at the top. You would probably need a 16 to 20-foot pole to do this and with a decent diameter and wall thickness. As the mast itself would be very heavy and susceptible to high levels of wind loading, you would also need to secure the mast with guy wire in a few directions to prevent it blowing over in the wind.
Set Top Aerial Installations when you don’t have a chimney or gable end
If Don’t have a chimney or a gable end, what is available in Wybourn? On very rare occasions a set-top aerial can offer suitable reception for your TV and can often resolve all your problems. However, this will only work if you live within a very strong signal area and are on the top of a hill. If you have to use a set top aerial then these do work better higher up in the room or near a window, as the transmitted signal will penetrate easier than brickwork.
As you can see there are alternatives to having your aerial mounting onto a chimney stack, I hope we have given you something to think about and consider. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us today 08000132341 ADI COMMUNICATIONS LTD.
What is the difference between Freeview and Freesat in Sheffield?
What is the difference between Freeview and Freesat in Sheffield? TV Aerials Sheffield can inform you that Freeview is digital TV received through an aerial from a land-based transmitter, via a set-top box or a Freeview TV set. Freesat is also received via a set-top box, however, transmissions are through a satellite, therefore a dish is required.
In areas where Freeview via an aerial is poor or unobtainable, Freesat can often be the perfect solution. It also has the advantage that currently over 180 TV and radio channels are available, against about 80 for Freeview. One final bonus is that both Freeview and Freesat are, as the names suggest, entirely free, once the equipment to receive them has been purchased, there are no ongoing charges or monthly subscriptions payable.
There isn’t really a comparison between Freeview and Freesat, with both of them, the set-top boxes are cheap and quite often many people have both systems plugged into the same TV set. Although, as stated Freesat does provide more channels. The days of five channel analogue TV are long gone and Freeview and Freesat now offer a huge range of digital TV channels and radio stations.
What is the difference between Freeview and Freesat in Sheffield?
As explained, both get access to a digital TV service without paying a monthly fee or signing up to a contract, one is delivered through an aerial and a set-top box, the other through a mini dish and a set-top box. It appears that the biggest difference is in terms of coverage. The way Freesat is broadcast means its coverage is total.
Freeview, on the other hand, although available to more than 98% of the UK, those with poor signals – such as those in the 15% of households that can only receive 15 core channels – will be better off with Freesat. Installing a satellite dish is the more expensive option, an average dish installation is around £99, as well as the cost of adding additional cables to extra rooms and the cost of the actual Freesat box.
For customers who already have a dish, such as former Sky customers, you will just need to buy a Freesat box, then simply switch the cables across. A standard Freesat set-top box costs around £50. Freeview requires a traditional TV aerial, and either a Freeview enabled TV, which is the norm these days, or a set-top box. Basic boxes can cost as little as £30
What channels are available on Freesat?
Freesat is more expensive due to the number of channels available. Freeview is steadily increasing, with more than 70 now available and up to 12 in HD; On top of that, there are more than 20 radio stations. In comparison, Freesat offers around 200 TV and radio channels and customers who buy the Smart version of Freesat.
Furthermore, Freesat with Freetime will also get access to a full range of digital terrestrial catch-up TV services and on-demand content that might otherwise only be available through a pay TV provider. However, some channels such as Sky News, Dave and Gold, are available on Freeview but not on Freesat.
Freeview offers up to 12 HD TV channels: BBC channels One, Two, Three, Four*, News*, CBBC, CBeebies, ITV, ITV HD, Channel 4, Channel 4, 4+1*, Al-Jazeera, Channels marked with an asterisk are available to about 70% of UK homes.
Freesat, by contrast, offers all of the above apart from Al Jazeera.
Is Freesat Better Than Freeview?
For those willing to invest a little extra in their TV habit, both Freeview and Freesat offer set-top boxes with the ability to record programmes.
As with Youview and Sky, the difference is marked by a tiny change in the terminology. Boxes that can record are denoted by the addition of a “+” – so that’s Freeview+, Freesat+, Youview+, Sky+ and so on.
Both provide an eight-day TV guide, and they’ll feature some sort of series link option, allowing users to set up automatic recordings of a whole series with just a couple of button pushes. A decent Freeview+ HD recorder will cost from £130; Freesat + HD recorders start from £150.
