I am trying to get French terrestrial television. I have put up an aerial, very similar to my neighbour’s and pointed it in the same direction.
I am using good quality, new coax. lead, good connections.
With our French-bought TNT labelled television the best I can get is 5 channels listed (F2, F3 Aquitaine, F4 and franceinfo. Only on F3 Aquitaine do I get anything - and that is perfect sound + subtitles. No picture whatever.
With another set (British , maybe 10yrs old, don’t know) I get sound only on F3 Aquitaine.
I spoke to a TV man who said straightaway ‘TV tuner problem’. At that time I hadn’t tried the second television. With the British TV when tuning I got the same 5 french channels and all the information about the program title etc along the bottom, but no picture.
I have moved the aerial direction in a few steps either way and am pretty sure it is pointing as good as possible. It is correct way up, compared to neighbours.
What might be wrong? Two TVs with duff tuners? An amplifier needed? Better aerial?
Incidentally, both TVs work perfectly on Satellite via Humax and scart leads.
