ITV, C4 and Five not working


Standard Member

Got a problem with ITV1, C4 and Five not working on Freeview. We recently brought 2 new TV with Freeview but none of them are picking up these channels.

Thought it might be an areil problem, but my Freeview TV upstairs, which runs off the same ariel receives everthing.

Any suggestions?

Can you swap one of the downstairs TVs with the upstairs TV? This might tell whether there is a fault with some of the aerial outputs.
It could also be that the cable route to downstairs is longer than that to upstairs, so more signal is lost; or perhaps the new TVs aren't as sensitive as the old one.
