Biggles replied to Chuck's discussion Does TV size affect freeview signal strength?
"The amount of signal strength required depends on the sensitivity of the TV's Tuner, not the size of the TV."

Biggles replied to Aiden Gyde's discussion No TVNZ with veon TV
"Check signal strength on the MUX you are receiving. It's possible you are in a weak reception area and some TV Tuners are more sensitive than others. Maybe just enough TVNZ signal for the old TV but not the new one?"

"In the interim you could try shifting the LNB Frequency up or down by 5 - 10mhz in your setup menu. Might keep it going til you replace the LNB."

Biggles replied to Damien Service's discussion Problem with UHF signal
"It's unlikely to be the Panasonic or STB. Normally they either work or they don't. The problem is almost certain to be associated with the antenna and cabling. And if the splitter is that old then it's most likely to be the wrong type…"

Oops sorry.

I couldn't do an autotune on the T2200 cos I had no service! Anyway I just whizzed out and bought an HDMI lead and it worked. The guy at Noel Leeming told me none of the FreeviewPlus-approved recorders come with HDMI cables, which is a bit rich when they sell for $400 upwards. Thanks for your help.

Thanks Biggles. So why does the Aerial Box come with AV leads and no HDMI cable?
