TV Aerial Repairs Oldham
There are many things that could cause your television aerial to break and the best thing to do is let TV Aerials Oldham test it with a meter. But, some of the most common factors include strong winds, corrosion of the bracket resulting in it snapping or the aerial falling from the pole.
All these factors would clearly affect the reception on your television. The incorrect aerial will also cause you to have poor reception and pixelation, if you live in an area of weak reception and had a standard 32 element aerial installed then you would most definitely experience problems. If you have an aerial poorly installed then your viewing experience would be affected.
TV Aerials Oldham employs professional engineers who would always aim to provide a first-class installation and the best quality reception. Other factors that may affect your television aerial include faulty coax, amplifiers, splitters or connections. Sometimes it could be something as simple as the wind that has blown the aerial out of alignment. Heavy rain can also cause interference. TV Aerials Oldham are here to help and we are only a phone call away
TV Aerials Best For Oldham
When choosing an aerial it is important to consider several factors. Firstly, TV Aerials Oldham would ask you to consider 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, TV Aerials Oldham finds that the type of aerial installed will affect signal strength too. In good signal areas, a standard aerial will be sufficient, poor signal areas will have High Gain aerials installed. The two aerials look completely different.
Logger and 32 element aerials are the most common types used to support digital Freeview and HD televisions. TV Aerials Oldham would recommend installing a 52 element aerial when connecting multiple rooms throughout the house, anything less wouldn’t have the strength to support so many rooms. Obviously the aerial would cost more, however, it is more cost-effective than adding an amplifier to the system. Learn More about different TV Aerials.
Indoor TV Aerial in Oldham
If for whatever reason you are unable to install a rooftop aerial, TV Aerials Oldham would suggest purchasing an indoor aerial as this may be your only option. An indoor aerial will only be effective if you have a transmitter close enough to your property to supply a good enough signal. Ideally, TV Aerials Oldham feels you will need to live within 10 -15 miles of the transmitter to receive good reception. If you have an omnidirectional aerial you won’t need to align this as it will adjust itself accordingly.
It is simple enough to identify where your nearest transmitter is, search the Digital UK Postcode checker. Several factors also effect how well an indoor aerial would work. As already mentioned by TV Aerials Oldham, being near enough to the transmitter, also the size of the buildings that surround your property or any large trees that grow nearby. All these will be factors in the quality of the received signal.
Indoor TV Aerials have many different designs, shapes and qualities. More current designs have built in amplifiers to maximize the signal, within a weaker reception area. The indoor aerial will need to be plugged directly into the back of the television or the set-top box. The aerial will need to be positioned in the best place to receive the optimum signal. If you would like any further advice from our team at TV Aerials Oldham, please call and we will be more than happy to help and advise.
Loft TV Aerial Oldham
Do Loft aerials work in Oldham? It does depend on the reception as Oldham have good and bad areas so its hard to say. However, TV Aerials Oldham are being booked to install aerials into lofts more frequently than ever. Most new build properties now have all their coaxial cables running from each room up into the attic or loft space.
Quite often TV Aerials Oldham would advise installing a High Gain aerial in order to receive optimum signal strength. In some cases, an amplifier will also be necessary. For example, if you were close to the relay and was installing into more than one room Oldham Aerials would install an amplifier so that we can keep above 50db to each room.
The engineer will carry out tests within the loft space to determine the best place to situate the aerial if it’s possible to do so. But TV Aerials Oldham can safely say that if the loft is foil lined then an aerial will not work. Also in some old properties, the roof thickness would not be suitable to place the aerial in there. Installing the aerial within the loft space will prevent the aerial from becoming weather-worn or being blown out of alignment in strong gales.
Oldham Freeview Aerials
Several areas of Oldham are well known for their poor TV aerial reception especially if your down in the valley. Many properties opt for a Satellite Dish installation as these do work better within these poor signal areas unless they are surrounded by trees.
However, for the customers that prefer to receive Freeview through an aerial, TV Aerials Oldham will install a High Gain aerial as this would be the best option. Unix 52 or at least a 32 element Wolseley aerial is advised. Although these are slightly more expensive they are more cost-effective in the long run. 52 – 72 Element aerials do ensure the best reception.
The Antenna would-be erected by TV Aerials Oldham, onto the roof or chimney where the reception is strongest, an Aerial installation comprises of the supply and fitting of the aerial, coaxial cable, bracket, lashing kit and very often, in poor reception areas a 10 to 12 ft pole is advised to raise the aerial even higher.
Freesat Installation Oldham
Is Freesat the best option for Oldham? TV Aerials Oldham would suggest that there are defiantly areas that would benefit from Freesat such as Todmorden as they have bad Freeview areas. Oldham Aerials can connect your existing Sky dish to Freesat and you can watch over 200 Freesat channels free of charge as well as record and use the catch-up facility. All you need to do is connect a Freesat box to your dish.
Sky packages have hefty monthly subscriptions and a large number of the channels are actually free with a Freesat box. If your property already has a satellite dish TV Aerials Oldham can simply switch it for you. Freesat is a contract-free alternative to Sky that provides more channels than standard Freeview.
Many Freesat boxes also have Netflix and YouTube Apps as well as catch-up from the BBC. Obviously, you would need to be connected to the internet to receive these features. Freesat is perfect if you live within a poor reception area. Call TV Aerials Oldham today for more information or to book an appointment

TV Aerial Cable Oldham
The quality of the cable that is used when installing an aerial is equally as important as the aerial itself. TV Aerials Oldham supply, fit and install the three most current coax cables on the market. These cables are more commonly referred to as RG59/U, RG6/U and RG11/U.
The RG59/U cabling is best suited to basic analogue television feeds within the home, it is made from copper central conductors and ideally is used when terminating the ends with F-Type connectors. Not to mention, this coax can also be used with simple CCTV installations that only require a short length.
RG6/U cabling is used for distributing Satellite systems within homes and businesses, furthermore it is also used for aerial cabling within apartments. Under British standards this coax cable is the minimum requirement for aerial cabling.
TV Aerials Oldham have found that when installing large distribution setups, forming the backbone of a TV or Satellite system RG11/U coax is essential for a professional installation. Call TV Aerials Oldham for any aerial or cabling related advise or to book an installation with one of our reliable engineers

The cost of an Antenna will depend on the type of aerial that your property will require. For customers wanting multiple rooms connecting the engineers at TV Aerials Oldham would always recommend a HG10 Aerial to supply the additional rooms sufficiently.

Magic Eye Installation Oldham
What is a Magic eye? simple this is a infrared transmitter and goes back to a receiver allowing viewing from another room. TV Aerials Oldham also offer Magic Eye Installations. The magic eye is a link device that enables customers to watch freesat or sky in other rooms, other than where the main box is situated. This can be done on analogue or HD Digital channels.
Multiple eyes can be connected so you can install magic eyes into every room, We would do this using a global amplifier or a distribution amp that as IR bypass. The signal to the other rooms is sent through the cabling from the satellite. This is fantastic for when when your in the kitchen or in bed and dont need a second box.
The only negative is that the TV channels can only be changed via the main box, meaning the additional rooms can only watch what is showing on the main TV set. But if there is only you and your partner it is perfect. For more information, call TV Aerials Oldham staff and engineers are more than happy to assist.
TV Aerial Booster Oldham
The installation of Boosters or Amplifiers enable customers to increase their signal received through the aerial.
After installing an aerial the TV Aerials Oldham engineer will test the signal strength using his meter. If the signal falls below the recommended level, an amplifier will be installed to prevent pixelation.
On larger television systems masthead or distribution amps are installed to increase signal throughout the property. If these type of distribution amplifiers aren’t installed correctly they can pick up radio interference.
TV Aerials Oldham would always recommend a professional engineer to come out and advise our customers. Incorrect installation can cause problems for televisions, as well as mobile phones and radio comms systems.
Amplifiers can be concealed discreetly within the roof cavity. Masthead amplifiers are most commonly attached to the aerial pole with a cable coming from the box and another lead running to the television within the property. They are quite simple and don’t affect the aesthetics of the property.
Best TV Aerial Connectors Oldham
A variety of cabling connectors are used by TV Aerials Oldham. Moreover, the quality of the cabling and connectors drastically affects the performance of the signal to your televisions.
One of the male connectors that we use simply twist and fit onto the coax cable, these are the most simple and modern connectors as they don’t require any equipment to fit.
The alternative would be to use a UHF connector which uses a sprung, tooth like clamp that the cabling is inserted onto.
Once the core is exposed the cable is inserted and the collar tightened. The coax is terminated and performance is improved.
For CATV, SATV and Digital TV, F-Type coax connectors are used alongside RG6 and RG11 cabling, and although twist and fix connectors are also available TV Aerials Oldham believe that the crimp connectors, terminated using crimping tools produce the better connection.
Caravan TV Aerials Oldham
Within the trade a High Gain aerial is known as a Diginova. It is a 10 element yagui-type UHF aerial that is watertight and UV resistant, ensuring it is protected from the elements.
Once installed the aerial adapts itself to the received signal in the area, correcting any signal fluctuations and auto adjusting the output to enable an optimum level for viewing. TV aerials Oldham install these types or aerials to caravan parks as well as static caravans.
Due to how discreet the Diginova aerial is TV Aerials Oldham have also been booked to install it to facias and balconies at residential homes as well as onto boats and barges. Engineers appreciate the simplicity of this aerial, easy to install, adjusting itself to receive optimum channels and it will also adjust itself to any future channels.
TV Aerial Splitters Oldham
Can a TV Aerial be split into multiple rooms? Well, TV Aerials Oldham are asked to install additional points around the house on a daily basis. Connecting extra rooms to the existing aerial will require a splitter. A single aerial extension starts at £49+vat, this includes the supply, fit and installation of the coax into the extra rooms and setting up the televisions. If a customer requires multiple rooms connecting the price is reduced with each room, as long as they are carried out on the same day.
The most cost effective solution would be to have the additional points installed when you have the initial aerial installation. Call our office at TV Aerials Oldham anytime and the staff will give you a quote over the phone. However the engineers will give you a definitive quote when they visit your property as they will test the signal strength through their meters and inform you whether you will require an amplifier to boost the signal as well. Adding extra points to an aerial weakens the signal strength.
The engineers at TV Aerials Oldham can also split sky leads and radio aerials. Ideally installing a High Gain Aerial would supply multiple rooms without the use of an amplifier. This is the most cost effective way to supply multiple rooms.

What is the difference between Freeview and Freesat in Oldham?
What is the difference between Freeview and Freesat in Oldham? TV Aerials Oldham 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 Oldham?
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.

All TVs since 2010 come with Freeview built in so once you have unpacked the TV and set it on its stand/wall mount the most important thing you need is an aerial in good condition to pick up the Freeview signal.
We recommend a roof aerial as this will cause less problems with interference. If you need a new aerial or to repair an existing aerial then get in touch with either the Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI) or Get Me Digital who can give you details of one or more members who operate in your area and guarantee their work:
Find an approved CAI installer at Get Me Viewing, A local installer will understand the circumstances and local geography of your area and suggest the best option for you. In some cases a set-top aerial will work but this can involve more trial and error (check which way your neighbours’ aerials are pointing).

Don’t have a chimney or a gable end in Oldham?
Front or Back Wall
TV Aerial Oldham 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 Oldham? 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 Oldham? 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.

How to Boost My Digital TV Signal in Oldham
How do i boost my Digital TV signal in Oldham? 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
Possible causes of TV Breaking Up:
Why is my TV breaking up in Oldham? 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.
