HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR TV RECEPTION

 

One of the best and first things we do to improve a customer's TV reception is installing the TV antenna in the best possible location. This is often done by moving the antenna from where it currently sits to a higher part of the roof using one of these tripods. (seen below) 

Why does this work?

Well basically, at the top of the roof the aerial has more 'line of sight' to the transmitters resulting in improved tv reception signals.

                  

 

Do they suit all types of rooves?

Yes, tile, tin, a flat roof, all types of roofing. These antenna tripods have been around for quite some time and they are a fantastic bit of TV reception hardware, used very wide-spread throughout the industry.

What else can I do to improve my TV reception?

Replace your old cable, replace your old splitter, wallplates and flyleads. Your tv reception is only as good as its weakest point.  

Is it worth my time to attempt to improve my tv reception problems myself?

Not really! For about 50 different reasons both practically and technically your chances can be quite slim. It would be like us trying to improve your tv reception without the correct equipment. We'd be guessing and doing it dodgy.

The Benefits of having your TV Magic improve your TV reception..

  • By the time you buy your own parts not including the time spent sourcing them, driving around, shopping and what not you can easily spend $100-$150. In fact many of the digital antennas that are sold @ retail really do under-perform to a digital antenna we would supply and to name one - a Bunnings antenna worth $150 (a decent size one) under-performs by more than 70% in some areas and would in fact cost you more than if we just done the whole job.
  • Guaranteed performance on all channels for 3 years 
  • Really, our antennas once installed last 10-15 years - once we install a digital antenna for a customer we don't see that customer again for the same problem ever again.
  • Safety concerns taken care of - don't risk getting on a high roof yourself or getting electrocuted
  • Does your antenna even need replacing? - We test the system and can accurately determine the cause which often is not even the antenna but the coax cable or something else that is 90% responsible. How can you do this without a signal meter?
  • 1-2 day service gets you watching your tv channels again in no time.
  • Black spot area specialists - if your tv reception problems are caused by your location, no matter how good a new antenna is - it may need to go higher. Installing a 20foot mast is best left to the professionals.
  • Free tv tuning and tuning of all your other A.V equipment
  • Correct tuning is often required with some models of tv once the signal levels improve and if it's not done correctly, it can leave us confused let alone an amateur!
  • Just book us in, it's just easier!

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.

How much will it cost..?

How much will it cost to Fix my TV reception? Sometimes there is a cheap fix, other times there is a risk of doing it cheap and it will cost more in the long run. Sometimes it has been done that badly in the first place that it's going to cost more to erectify an old system than it's going to just install a brand new one from scratch. Sometimes, the old gear is that old that the whole lot just needs replacing. In the end, the tv reception signals need to comply to certain requirements or it's just not going to work.
