Telly Channels - weird thing going on !

We have FREEVIEW - free to air t.v via an aerial on the chimney.

Transmitter is Rowridge, Isle of Wight.

During the past 5 years or more, we have had three t.v`s running off the same aerial leadin,  all getting the same signal from Rowridge.

one of the channels, ( channel 46 ) is only available on one t.v.

This is the "main" lounge t.v.    .....

a 2nd t.v on a splitter from the main aerial lead where it enters the house, does not get channel 46.Nor does the t.v. in the bedroom upstairs..

About 4 weeks ago. the lounge t.v. gave up and we bought a new  JVC ROKU T.V.  after setting up... it receives channel 46 ( along with all the other channels available on Freeview for our area. )

Other t.v.` do not .. so.. in effect...although we have a more modern, and up to date t.v it still receives the same channels as the old one. 

Retuning the other t.v`s does not produce channel 46 on their program guides.

Can anyone explain why this should be...not that they don`t tune ch 46, but why three t.v.`s on the same aerial, and leadin, do not all produce the same channels.

If you put your address in to this checker - https://www.freeview.co.uk/freeview-channel-checker 

 

Is the signal strength for channel #46  shown as any lower than the other channels you can receive ?

Channel 46 is transmitted along with the HD channels, ie ,101,102 etc, which are unlikely be available on older TVs.

@rhohne  Never bothered checking the HD channels... so will have a look at them tomorrow, and see if the other t.v.`s DO get those channels  101, 102 etc

The HD channels multiplex will only be available on TVs equipped with an HD tuner, ie. DVB-T2.

@shutter 

This is the list of mux channels and TV allocations for https://ukfree.tv/transmitters/tv/Rowridge

I've just done a rescan, all the channels for Rowbridge are added as per the above list.

I would say if the TV is not HD then you won't receive Channel 46

Re: Telly Channels - weird thing going on !

@rhohne Thanks for your input.Smiley

Have checked out the HD channels on other tv`s and they do not appear... so your suggestion seems to have solved the problem.

 

Case, and thread, CLOSED !  Smiley
