Hi, I have recently bought a FVP 5000T due to my old FOT T2 just giving a green screen which we couldn't resolve.
apart from the green screen problem we never used to really ever have any signal issues with the Fox T2, i have only had the FVP 5000T about a week and a lot of nights the screen will go to a screen saying signal is too weak etc..
I have looked on the freeview site and it says where i live i would be connecting to the storeton transmitter, im not very far from it, i remember when the guy fitted the aerial he said he could clearly see the actually transmitter just at eye sight from the roof. I am in Liverpool and think that transmitter is just across from the river mersey.
It seems a little odd that i seem to be getting this issue a lot since getting this new unit, i am hoping it was just bad timing and maybe there is work being done but it appears not according to the freeview site.
On doing a signal test i get 70% for signal strength which changes to 69% a lot by the looks, and 100% for quality.
One other thing to mention, the humax is connected to the media plate which was in out new house when we moved in, the guy that fitted the aerial couldn't get a signal when trying on the TV port then later realised that the housing developer for some reason had connected the wiring to the return port, but he said it was a bit odd but should still work fine though. i'm not sure i really understand what that means anyway, there is another aerial port in the bedroom as well but thats not connected to anything.
I'm reluctant to do a re-turn because i only set it up a week ago so dont see why a retune would be needed, it would seem a waste losing all my recordings i have set, unless you think it would really help?
How would i know also if i am deffinitly connected to the storeton transmitter and not one thats further away? say winter hill?
Anyway, thanks in advance.
