Just installed a UHF aerial on my roof, aimed it the same as my other aerial which I use for the lounge. Run the cable directly to my Samsung TV straight into the aerial plug. Ran the auto tune but I didn't get anything. I'm not in the HD area by the way.

Any help would be great.

If you are not in the HD area, how is the other Aerial working?


the 'HD Area' just means that you can receive freeview's Terrestrial service, as opposed to the Satellite service (which is not in HD).


What Town/City are you in? It is possible your antenna needs to be horizontally mounted as opposed to vertically (in other words, rotate it 90 degrees while still being pointed in the right direction).

What are you using to receive the signal in your lounge? If possible, take it into the other room and plug the new aerial in. Or take  your new TV into the lounge. This will immediately tell you if the problem is with the aerial or your TV. The way to diagnose any problem is to start eliminating things.
