LOCAL INSTALLER - TV MAGIC - TAPEROO AND ALL OTHER SUBURBS OF ADELAIDE

Here at this Taperoo home they needed a new TV antenna installation. It was obvious once I got on the roof to inspect the old TV antenna. It was facing straight into the houses across the road. Not to mention that the old aerial was under-performing and the balun had, had it. 

Below are some pics of the old analogue aerial.  

The tv channels that were pixelating previously:

  • 72 
  • 7 Mate
  • One HD
  • channel 7
  • No SBS at all
  • No ch31 at all
  • None of the ABC channels.
After the new TV antenna installation (including moving the antenna just a few metres to the left - click here to read why this is done) and replacing some cable and the splitter and re-tuning the 3 tv's - all channels were perfect. 
This was one of those jobs where I tested the aerial near the peak of the roof, and even at the other end of the house and just one channel - (channel 9 I think) was still a little hit and miss. It just so happened to be that the signal broke through in an unusual spot a few metres away from where it originally was.
I double checked that I couldn't avoid installing a new aerial mast by alligning the aerial better on the existing mast but to no avail, I just wasn't happy with the signal quality. It made me realise that after testing all parts of the roof, despite my initial judgement, whoever installed the aerial some 15 years ago got the position right. Due to more recent developments it must have blocked the frequency for channel 9 to hit that spot. (This problem is actually becoming more and more common) But at times it reminds me that some jobs just aren't as quick as anticipated and it was a hot day! Im glad I can rely on my signal meter! 
Upon finishing the TV antenna installation, the customer was stoked because they had already wasted a few hundred dollars on another aerial installation company and they had done nothing? In fact I couldn't quite work out what they done at all - as it appeared to be nothing. I asked the customer, even though I was heavily booked up "Well, what does it say on the invoice"? And well, he said, "I don't know! I never got one? Some guy came when I wasn't home". 
That mystery was left unsolved. I was given one very nice compliment at the end of the job and all up, total time for the aerial installation: 1.5 hours. So, if you want your aerial installation done right the first time and in a timely manner -

Get TV Magic to do it.

Note how the old antenna is facing straight into the neighbouring house!

Also the cable was joined by a dodgy D.I.Y person 

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.
