4 Signs you need a TV signal booster / masthead amplifier added to your existing antenna system

  1. Your antenna reception is working fine most of the time is a sign that you're TV signal is weak and may be pixilating the channels from time to time, a booster can help resolve this situation.
  2. Your experiencing pixilation on your TV channels after you've added in some extra TV outlets to your home. If you don't have a strong TV signal and you split it further to accommodate some new TV points it reduces the signal at the outlets and you may of just reduced it enough now to induce TV pixilation. Fitting a masthead signal amplifier should resolve your problem.
  3. Your antenna reception is good only at one end of your home. The further the distance your TV outlet is from the antenna, IE. the more cable length you've used the less signal will make it to the end. Some large houses need an amplifier to strengthen the TV signal for the far side of their home.
  4. Your antenna cabling is very old and you're losing TV channels / pixilation when it never used to. As cable gets old it tends to lose more signal per meter from deteriorating cable insulation. A TV signal booster will assist the TV signal to get from A to B without the huge signal loss.

4 Signs you have a TV signal booster / amplifier but it's not working

  1. You get no TV reception at all, no channels. When you're TV antenna booster is not working the whole antenna system stops working altogether.
  2. You can see it hanging off your antenna mast. When a masthead amplifier falls from the mast and hangs upside down it allows the rain to get in which fried the circuit board.
  3. Your TV reception stops working when its wet and comes good after a few days. There is water getting into your booster. It takes a few days to dry out. It's definitely going to need replacing.
  4. You TV channel pixilate that bad it's unwatchable. When the antenna booster is not working no signal comes in and a TV may still try display the channels but it's unwatchable.

A real-life example from today, 24th October 2017 follows:

Kerrie from Ashmore called TV Magic out to see why he can't get any TV reception after moving into his new home. What we found when we arrived was that his antenna system was fitted with a masthead amplifier booster and the power pack was missing. After inspecting the actual booster on the roof we found it was very old and not in good condition. The best solution for Kerrie which she agreed was to get a whole new set and make use of our 5 year warranty.

What materials are being used in your antenna installation?

 

Not all antennas are made equal. The antenna that is powering your antenna system will determine how long and how good the system performs. For this TV antenna, all it would take is one little bird to sit right there to cause a temporary short out. This will cause an immediate drop in signal strength and quality. As a worse-case scenario a user may experience immediate TV reception symptons such as freezing or pixelation. Best case scenario - it's only a matter of time before the spring in the metal fails to bounce back and it shorts out permanently. This is a typical design flaw. 

Antenna installation that won't leave you paying twice - don't let this be you!

On a weekly basis, TV Magic replace worn out, underperforming TV antennas that are no longer serving their purpose. The reasons why they are under-performing are numerous but here are a couple ..

  • They are incorrectly installed
  • The wrong style / type antenna was selected for a particular area / suburb 
  • A poorly designed / manufactured TV antenna 
  • The antenna was installed up side down letting water get into the balun! (This is no laughing matter! - It happens quite frequently)
  • The antenna is good, but the antenna installation is being let down by other faulty components that should have been replaced 
  • Broken elements - plastic goes brittle in the sun after a few short years and large birds are good for business

Why need an antenna installation at all?

 

At TV Magic, we aim to fix your TV reception for the next 10-15 years!*

It's sad, but it happens. A quarter of antenna installation jobs we get called out to is to replace something that the customer has already paid for. .... quite recently...

An antenna installation is only going to have long lasting performance if the correct antenna is used for the area!

Do you live in an area where there are high antenna masts everywhere? Sometimes TV Magic comes along and we can guarantee flawless TV reception with a small antenna pole - enabling us to get rid of the huge chunk of scrap metal atop of your roof. Other times, you may be the one and only person in the street that has an extended antenna installation (and/or no-one else has a high mast in the whole neighbourhood). In these cases, it can be confusing to see why we may recommend that you need an extended mast. What we have often experienced, is that once you take the leap ... more times than not it is discovered that extended mast antenna installations start popping up left, right and centre in your street or throughout the neighbourhood. It is then later discovered that your neighbours were ...

  • Putting up with bad TV reception - thinking 'that's just the way it is'
  • Watching Pay TV services - not needing an antenna 
  • Neighbours only watching TV at a certain time of the day - happens to be the time of the day when the signal is just "ok" 
  • Not watching TV all (yes some people don't watch TV!)

In some areas - high masts are required for the antenna installation - (Watch the video below)

TV Magic have years of experiencing extended masts and high mast antenna installations. Our installations are designed to withstand 150km/hr winds. Basically that means that the tiles on a roof should be coming off before any cyclonic wind will blow it over. This is important as it is not that common to have 100km/hr winds at 5m above roof top level during a severe storm.

Having TV reception problems? Pixelation? One channel dropping out or freezing?  

Why does that happen? How is digital Tv different to analogue? Why do you only get problems on one TV point or only on one TV channel?

The following videos give you some answer to all of the above. These are very commonly asked questions. Basically, any problems you are experiencing will not fix themselves. They may come 'good again' however, this will be temporary. By Calling TV Magic we can ascertain by using our 'field strength meter' just how good or how bad your TV channels really are. When we test, we are looking to see if any channel is reaching minimum signal requirements. This will make sure there is enough 'head room' for fluctuation for bad weather, trees, a few broken elements and other factors that effect signal strength and signal quality. If these minimal requirements are not met, yes you may still have a 'perfect clear picture' however the BIG QUESTION is; for how long for? Yes your bald tyre does keep air in it and drives your car around, but obviously it's not going to take a nail or a bit of glass on the road as well as a brand new tyre.
