I have an AVTEX STH1000 Digital TV Aerial. In fact I've had six aerials, and have always had terrible trouble getting programmes.

I have purchased a Digital TV/DVD with freeview, and on connection can only get one frosty alalogue programme. No digital programmes or digital picture.

Is it possible that?:-

The tv is duff. I don't think so myself as it plays the analogue and DVD. Can a tv only allow access to analogue and not digital?

The aerial is duff. Agian I don't see how as I can receive a programme, all be it a frosty analogue.

I have the aerial in a vertical position as opposed to horizontal. Will this make a difference?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

With the television switched on, select "Input" on the controller, when the Menu on the screen appears select DVD or whatever. You should then be able to watch a DVD.

Regards

Drew

The Avtex aerial is a 12v amplified aerial.

Reception of a snowy analogue signal indicates you do not have the amplifier of the aerial connected.

Connected to an Avex Tv you have to select the aerial on the menu to get the tv to pass the 12v to the aerial to amplify the signal.

Connected to a non Avetx Tv you need to plug in the supplied "cigar-lighter plug" to a 12v supply. Is this how you have connected it??

It appears the aerial can be mounted anyway up.

Our STH1000 works well, but the 12V signal booster needs to be connected up. Make sure you do a fresh channel install at each site you visit & be aware that digital signals will vary greatly across the UK until the switchover is complete & the signals are amplified countrywide.

You should be able to do a digital install or an analogue one on your TV. We had terrible reception in Berwick this year, so watched DVD's instead. Lincoln, on the other hand, was great. The STH1000 can be mounted in any position, but I'd look at fellow campers' aerials for a starter position.

As suggested I have connected the booster signal with the 12v amplifier.

I get a frosty connection with only 2 or 3 channels. No digital connection.

The tv unit is a new one from Tesco. Technika 19" tv.dvd. Its actually the 3rd one. I purchased a Technika 15" tv/dvd for 120 and the screen was faulty, no picture but lines horizontal and vertical. I replaced it with a new one 19"for 130, added 10 and I thought it was a better bargain. This one got a picture but the image was pixilated. Returned it for this new one. Now, no digital reception but only frosty analogue. Hmmm. Dvd is great.

I always received analogue on my other analogue tv, this is the first time that I have, in theory, been able to receive digital. I know the aerial received analogue but can an AVTEX aerial only receive analogue and not digital. It says that it should on the box.

GJB, if the programmes play and not cd/dvd, sounds like your cd/dvd is duff.

I will try the unit in a friends motorhome. I am waiting for delivery of a 12v to mains adapter for the tv. He has a good aerial. If no digital, then back to tesco.

The unit really does look good. Maybe I've got part of a suspect batch.

Will keep you posted

I have a Technika set in my bedroom, its very good, but is a few years old now. I know someone with a new Technika and its no where near as good picture quality and sound as my old one. Suppose its a good time to plug the idea that cheap sets can sometimes be a false economy.

The Avtex antenna is ok, but you do have to be in a pretty good signal strength area. Using a signal meter such as Maxviews MXL013 can help you position the antenna for the best reception. I know when we played with one at Newark, it had to be in exactly the right position to work on digital.

For trouble free reception, I feel a little more money may have to be spent in the respect of a bigger directional aerial or even going satellite.

Thank you Snelly

I have checked the tv and it is ok. I am in the proces of changing the aerial today.

As you can see from my original posting, I am moving away from the satellite as I will be travelling daily and the set up is too awkward. If I were going to be static for a number of days then it would be ok.

mmm, it doesnt necesserily have to be awkward, there are new product such as easy find lnb that make getting a signal a lot easier.

Good luck with the aerial, hope it improves things
