I'm in a conundrum in regards to whether or not I can get FreeviewHD or not.
I've recently purchased a house in Kelson, Lower Hutt and wasn't sure if I could get FreeviewHD. I've purchased a Pinnicale HD USD TV Tuner to test before dedicating more money to the cause.
I can receive 5 channels and just get an occasional frame from the reception on the tuner with the small 100mm aerial that comes with it (when on the roof).
I've tried connecting the USB tuner to our aerial setup, but I have a feeling the system is either wired up badly or the amplifier it is going through has burnt out. It passes a continuity test with my multimeter so there is connection termination from TV to aerial.
I'm just wondering if it's worth even trying to get a new aerial system and then trying this out.
Any help would be appreciated..
I've since bought a Sony KDL-40W5500 and it has a built in Freeview Tuner, and it's marvelous, because it shows that my original setup is at least 90% there (did it without the USB tuner which failed to work)
TV3, TV3 Plus1, C4, Maori, Prime, Parliment, and a few others show up but aren't perfect (a lot of dropping and pausing) and occasionally I can get the EPG going.
I've been told to point towards Mount Fitzherbert, but I'm not sure exactly where that is.
Can someone give me the long/lat for this transmitter so I can sit on my roof and see if it's anywhere near what I can see ?
