I've been receiving digital for 3 or so years now with no problems (other than the odd period of pixelation which I've never been able to nail the cause - sometimes wet season during storms - sometimes in dry season without a cloud in the sky but a bit windy - some times perfect conditions??).
At around Cyclone Carlos time a few weeks ago, things got really bad - and i just put it down to $hitty weather - but now that the weather is clear again, I basically have no reception ditigal reception on any ABC channels - other than one digital TV (all other channels are sort of OK!!)
I have 4 TV outlets - x2 digital TV's, 1 'old' TV running off a SD setup box, and a large TV running of a multimedia PC with tuner card. I have an old Kingray SA214V Video Combiner/Splitter/Amplifier sharing the RF signal - all these had great reception (other than spasmodic pixelation as per above) up until recently.
Now, all but one digital TV have no reception of any ABC channel. The one that does have ABC signal, seems to be 'pillarboxed'.
Before I spend a squillion getting the antennae man in - is there a simple fix I might be missing (eg the 'new' antenna on the roof - which I presume is the digital jobby & pointing towards Berrimah seems OK - but the 'old' one pointing towards the city seems a bit wind/sun damaged!! - is this where ABC comes from??).
