I know this isn't PC related but I know you are all so very helpful. A friend has bought a TV with built in freeview. When tuned in it only picks up 18 channels inc BBC1 and BBC2 but no ITV C4 or C5. Why is this do you think please?
It will be weak signal, probably needs a better aerial. Unlike analogue TV he won't get a poor picture if the signal is weak, it is normal for a number of digital channels to be missing if the signal is poor.
I had a friend who only got 3 channels on Freeview until he fitted a new aerial.
Recently installed an aerial for a friend.The original aerial was pointing the wrong direction,he was receiving a strong signal on the channels he was receiving,but only about 10-15.
Installed the new aerial and used a compass to locate the closet aerial transmission mask(web sites will give you all the info),after it was fitted and facing the mask,he received over 50 channels all with medium to strong reception.
Just a note,some aerials require an horizontal or vertical alignment.
