Hi, I've recently moved to with in approx. 1 mile of the kings weston transmitter and from what I can gather this is where my roof ariel is pointing towards (half of the others in my street also point this way, the other half point towards (I think) the Mendip transmitter) I have two ariel sockets and have tried two different televisions in each socket but cannot pick up any signal through either socket. Does any one have any ideas of what the problem might be? I don't want to call out an engineer if I can help it!

Thanks

Thanks for your quick reply JB38.

I have followed the cable from the ariel on the roof in to the loft and then down into the bedroom wall where one of the sockets is located. There is no sign of any booster being used in the loft as the cable is one continuous length.

I have removd the socket from the wall in the lounge and there is a cable attached to it. I'm assuming this is some how connected to the socket / cable in the bedroom as there is only one cable in the loft.

I have tried to remove the socket in the bedroom to see if it is conncted correctly but there isn't enough slack to get a good look.

I'm guessing either the ariel is broken (is this possible? is there much that can go wrong with them?) or the cable has unattached itself from the ariel on the roof. Either way I think I'm going to have to call out a specialist. Can anyone recommend anyone in the Bristol area?

Thanks

Antony
