Late year I purchased a Panasonic V20 TV and also a Sony PlayTV and use them with terrestrial aerial. I live in Hamilton on a hill which is on the sheltered side from the Freeview signal
The Freeview reception has always been good through the V20 and reasonable with the PlayTV until winter arrived. Reception has deteriorated and so I had a professional come and he installed a hi gain UHF aerial and a signal amplifier. This improves the picture some of the time, but still has poor picture most of the time with PlayTV and still OK with the V20. The weather is mostly changeable and wet
My poor reception looks like vertical stripes of colour and no audio
I have checked the signal strength during poor picture with the V20 and all channels are 100% for both strength and quality. I am not sure how accurate this is.
1. How good would you expect the receiver to perform in the PlayTV compared to the Panasonic V30?
2 Is there away to improve the reception performance of the PlayTV?
