Picture break-up on some channels, otherwise ok
certain channels , picture breaking up, sometimes quite badly, other -wise, normal ?
Thanks jayeff for the reply, apologies for delay.. All your remarks duly noted and of course appreciated, it did cross my mind that because of the difference in reception , that certain channels were not as strong as others.
By the way the antenna is pointing to Sutton Coldfield here in the midlands (UK) , no set top box, straight application.. Since the past post,! I decided to re-tune the Samsung TV , to attempt a sort of re-set, strangely enough, the main culprit channel, (19) among others, seems quite normal again, ! 'fingers crossed' .
However, poor connections , will still be on my suspect list, and I will get the antenna system checked, some time soon. Thank you again, for your interest , and sound advice.. Best wishes to you and yours.
How do you get the TV channel signals, direct via a TV antenna or an input connection via a "box" to an antenna or cable?
If via an antenna have you checked that the existing antenna is in good condition and is pointed in the correct direction with regard to where the TV transmitters are?
Check the signal level for your channels. You may need a new antenna or antenna lead and possibly a masthead amplifier as well if the signal level is too low or on the threshold for some channels but not for others.
If connected via a "box" what make and model number is it? Check its' User guide to see if it has a signal level menu option as well.
This is more than likely due to your aerial, than any other factor. If it is a digital TV, then one of the down sides is that the picture and sound signals a sent separately instead of together like the old analogue units.
So you either need a good indoor digital aerial or a quality outdoor aerial.
Hello, sm_vulus, and to you also jayeff, .Trust it's OK to answer you both in the one post. You both touched on the one and only thing I had in mind, the 'antenna', . But I was a bit puzzled why only the odd channel, and not all channels ?.Since you both pointed to this , then without doubt , at the moment, I will indeed get the antenna connections checked ! Can only assume that winter has caused problems ,
Many thanks to you both for your replies and suggestions Best wishes vin roberts
Possible simple solution:
Had this problem and corrected it by upgrading indoor 75Ω coaxial cable from standard RG59 to RG6 .
RG6 just has better shielding than RG59
Check what cable you currently have. Should be very faintly printed on the outer
Maybe you could do this all the way from the antenna .
