So i've got a TV with an inbuilt HD reciever(Samsung 32B450).

Connected it up to the Aerial but I can't get HD channels? I'm pretty sure the aerial can recieve digital channels(It's the old "sky" uhf aerial").

Any Ideas? Do I have to change the direction of the aeiral etc?


I'm guessing it's the direction as the aeiral was only used for SKY UHF a while back.


Any help would be appreciated :-)

Yes, it's probably the direction. Where are you located?

Judging by that link you gave me... I'm thinking my aerial should be vertical instead of horizontal :s

Usual cause is an unpowered masthead amplifier. When sky removed UHF they tended to take the power supply as well, leaving you with no UHF reception unless you asked them to leave it. That was back in the days before they owned prime so there was an incentive for them to remove them.
