Re: Optus cable tv

Hi,

Does he use the Optus FetchTV box?

FTA TV (ABC, Channel 9 , etc.) is not provided by Optus. It comes from the aerial on the roof. As a short term bug fix try plug the aerial straight into the back of the TV and then tune the TV to find channels.

See what that does.

Re: Optus cable tv

You could try an Indoor antenna. Digital TV is 100% if the reception is okish. Just $15 or so. Return it if it doesn't work.

But note that Optus isn't in a position to help with your FTA reception. If you have an internet connection to a Fetch box then their are a number of streamed channels you can access. Including Netflix, Stan and FetchTV packages. Also catchup TV for the FTA TV channels (not live though)
