Evenin folks,

I have been watching Freeview reasonably well via my laptop using DVB Viewer and an HVR-900 USB DVB-T tuner and the small DVB-T aerial.

I've just been hanging the little aerial outside the window!

Now for the life of me, i cant get any signal/channels via the UHF aerial.

I get Prime/Trackside/Maori TV very clear. I'm in Hamilton and the UHF aerial is pointed towards the Te Aroha transmitter.

I have one of those old long loop aerials for VHF and when the UHF was installed for Sky TV years ago, i think the installer combined the VHF and UHF connections somewhere outside as it's jus the one cable coming inside.

Do you think the VHF signal is interfering with the UHF signal and therefore causing no signal for DVB-T?

Any help appreciated

Damager: Evenin folks,

If you get good reception of Prime and Maori TV on your TV using a roof-mounted UHF aerial thats pointed at the Te Aroha transmitter, then you really should be able to receive Freeview HD from the same transmitter.

Step 1 might be to be absolutely certain that the aerial is pointed at Te Aroha. If it is you should be getting Prime on channel 60 and Maori TV on channel 44.
