Thanks for your reply. I guess that would explain it then. Hmm bit disappointing. I don't know why but I was expecting more channels going a seperate box.
At the end of the re-tuning I have tried both transmitters (london & cambridge) and neither seemed to have made a difference. I also getting signal breakup on some channels which I was not getting through the TV direct so again this matches what you said.
I have looked on amazon and invested in a labgear signal booster which seems to have got good reviews so will give it ago.
Can I suggest you get a new aerial flylead - the cable that plugs in to your aerial socket.
If the cable you have is quite old I've seen what you describe happen - i.e. worked fine with TV's built-in tuner but didn't work so well with YouView+ box.
Have a look on amazon for a shielded aerial flylead - you might find this resolves your problem.
I'm not allowed to post a direct link but if I remember properly the supplier on amazon was a 3rd party called 'world of data' and they had shielded cable in various lengths. It seemed to do the job so it may, possibly resolve your issue. Or not, of course!
It was only about a fiver (+delivery costs)
(I had a look on the BT Shop online for a similar item but the only one they had is out-of-stock).
Ok so I bought this booster and the reception is much improved and it found 70 internet channels but more fustrating it didn't improve on the tv ariel channels which remain the same so I am still missing a lot of channels.
I might try the new cable route if it is only a fiver.
Ariel is a washing powder and a little mermaid 🙂
As for your aerial(!) - yes I would definitely try a new cable.
It was only £5 + delivery - it was one of those 'supplied by x fulfilled by amazon' items and it came with an adaptor to convert a male to female plug if that was what you needed/else can just use the male plug.
If that solves your problem you can just return the booster to amazon for a refund. Remember to select the 'not suitable' option, not the 'I've changed my mind option'
The booster would make no difference to internet channels as these are not transmitted via your aerial
- Edit: did you try any of the Internet channels you then saw in your list to see if you could actually view any you had subscribed to?
