I have a brand new Samsung LED, and a two year old Samsung LCD both with inbuilt Freeview. This is my bedroom tv and kids PS3 tv. I have a Freeview UHF aerial running from roof to an 8way splitter, and feeding 8 ports around the house. Both TVs have the same issue and there are only 2 of the 8 way splitter ports in use.
TV1, TV2 U, Maori, Choice, Prime, TV1 +1, etc all perfect, but TV3, Ch4 and TV3 +1 are basically un-watchable and always pixelated with a bit of sound. I thought it was the older model Samsung, so was disappointed when the brand new model did the same thing.
I've isolated the splitter and joined the cable straight through from aerial to the TV, but still the same. Went up on the roof in the weekend, and the aerial is under 2 years old, in good nik, and no sign of any rust or corrosion when I open up the connection box. Aerial is pointed in the same direction as all the other aerials around the neighbourhood.
Is this a tv, splitter or reception problem or any ideas? I'm in Royal Oak, Auckland.
