Have you tried a new installation of the TV channels?

Don't want to teach you to suck eggs, but different areas of the UK have different frequencies for the same channels.

Edit, just looked and noted you have been motorhoming since 2011! Sorry!!!

It won't be that then!!!

I can recommend the new Vision plus Status booster. It has its own signal strength meter in the form of a colour changing LED.
You simply turn the aerial until the LED goes from red to yellow to green.
Then you just tune the TV and all is OK. You don't even have to look where anyone else's is pointing!

We don't have one on our van, but I fitted a new Status 550 to Shell's Mum and Dads new van, hence my ability to make a recommendation.

Check that the aerial coaxial cables are actually connected! On my MH, not only had the cables been connected to the wrong sockets on the booster box, but the aerial socket did not have the centre wire of the coax cable exposed so it would never connect to the status aerial on the roof. So much for the factory's quality control - but it did explain my inability to get a TV signal!

Do you have a signal where you are. I know since the digital changeover we have come across a couple of places where we could get no reading on our signal meter.
