The software you are using would help, as well as other specs.

However my guess is you don't have a UHF aerial which you need.

i just had a installer come in and he told me these days u don'y need one of those large 91element uhf aerials -

he showed me this white box looking thing that is a fraction smaller than a tissue box than u can just prop up in your apartment window instead of running it off your apartment aerial - this "internal" aerial can be set up very easily and very cheaply

let me know if this sounds good and I'll give u his number

Do you seriously expect someone to magically fix your problem when the only information you've given is your card model, where you live and that digital channels don't work?

I'd suggest calling out a technician to sort it for you.

The most likely explaination is that your apartment UHF system is clipping the Digital bands ( or not amplifying them),

If this is the case, You can either get an internal aerial that works, or get the body corporate to sort out their POS cabling ( good luck with the latter by the way)

you didn't state whether you could get perfect reception of prime tv on UHF using the apartment's antenna.

well. if digital works on indoor antenna but not on outdoor antenna, prime tv uhf works on external antenna then wellygary must be right.  unless the freeview hd is broadcast from a different site than the uhf prime and the external antenna is pointing the wrong way.

A lot of MATV systems have a band pass filter for each channel they want on the system, they do this so they can add other things, like the feeds from cameras in communal areas and sometimes the modulated output of a sky box.

If this is the case they would need more filters to let freeview thru. Raise it with the body corporate if you own, or the property manager if leasing.
