Some Frequently Asked Questions
- Why go Digital?
Digital antennas receive a higher quality of signal compared to the older analogue antennas.
- Does Analog still exist?
No, TV in Brisbane and across Australia is digital throughout.
- Do new antennas work with old TVS?
Yes, digital antennas work with the older analogue TVs, as long as you have a digital receiver (set top box)
- If I have multiple points will I have a weaker signal?
Yes, each connection does reduce signal throughout the system but not greatly.
- Why would I need an amplifier or booster & what is the difference?
Amplifiers/boosters are the same and they are used to increase the signal received by the antenna. In some areas this may be required due to hills, trees, distance to towers or amount of points throughout the house.
- What trouble shooting should I do at home for reception problems before calling you out?
Are all your TVs having the same issue? If not, it could be a localised issue with a cable or wall plate. Try replacing the cable from the wall outlet, directly to the TV.
