So Chris, since I've moved in here I’ve had a lot of issues with my TV dropping out, fuzzy pictures, not connecting. What are some of the reasons that that could be happening?

[00:11] Chris

First of all, it could be the TV antenna itself could have failed, the pole might not be secured correctly on the roof, or it could be the cabling. It could be the connectors connecting from the TV point to the antenna.

Quite a few different reasons that could be happening. You've identified that it's my TV antenna right, so what are things going to consider when you're looking at a new TV antenna?

First of all, it's location, of the property itself, location on the roof, the actual antenna itself, that you have the correct antenna. In your case, you're kind of on a fringe and your antenna needs to be a specific type and needs to point to a specific point.

Okay great, so how do you know when you've got it in the right position?

[00:57] Chris

We have this TV analyzer that plugs into the antenna and it will actually give me a signal strength and then when I have the correct signal strength I can then lock the antenna in.

Okay, brilliant mate, I look forward to getting a clear TV picture again. I’ll let you get back onto it. Awesome.
