Re: I get terrible free to air reception - help!

@Scruff2008, this is concerning your Yes TV by Fetch service?

 

Are you having trouble with viewing a select few channels or are there issues with all channels.

 

When you say bad reception, you're experiencing heavy pixelation or stutter/flickering?

I presume you mean your Fetch gets terrible reception, but your TV is fine, and you have no masthead amplifier.

most FTA channels break up - like the digital reception is bad... 9 is ok but 7,2,10 and SBS a mass of pixilation

Are you splitting the signal? You will need an amplifier prior to splitting. The amp should be up near the antenna. But set top boxes have inferior processing.

Are you putting your TV signal through a splitter? Are you trying to power two devices off the same signal? If so, that's the first degradation of the signal. Some people put the signal throug their set top boxes and videos, but that ends up being a pain.
