Acceptable Signal Strength and Quality

What is an acceptable % for Signal Strength and Signal Quality for an aerial that's been installed in a loft, the aerial is a Blu10 HD Lte which I've been told is recommended for a loft aerial as opposed to a outside roof aerial.

I originally had the type of aerial that is used for outside but the signal strength would never be more than 62% plus some channels were missing, so the guy from TSG said that he'd install the type I've mentioned earlier and although the first aerial is technically better the one that was installed secondly was recommended for loft installations.

Re: Acceptable Signal Strength and Quality

I assume that your Youview box is running NextGen - tile based interface.

You really need a signal quality of 100% and a signal strength of in excess of 90%. If you can't get to this level then you'll suffer lack of some channels & potential picture breakup.

At 62% I doubt that an aerial amplifier will help too much but might be worth a try.

I don't have 62% now as I say since the aerial has been installed that's recommended for lofts other than roofs it's normally 90%for Signal Strength.
