Good aerial, got one in a very poor signal area and it picks up most the channels where a standard aerial doesn't.

Look to the right. More Buying Choices. £10.00 from Amazon.

Good Aerial. Hot.

These were £8.50 in sainsbury's. The might still be...

Usually dispatched within 1 to 2 months so dont buy if you want to watch telly next week!

Purchased from Asda at £10 a few weeks ago in store as I didn't fancy routing cables to the room a TV was located in, works well. Voted hot

I am wondering if this antenna would be any good for my problem in my house.

Signal is very good (live in South West London area, Morden) however when a bus or truck drives past the signal breaks up. Only buses and trucks. It's becoming increasingly annoying. I need something that will boost and cause less break up. Is there such a thing?

Voted +HOT on price if you can wait [if not use asda!]

FN:
Just *wish* asda's on line teams would add a touch more info to their api lookup stock database descriptions and specifications...

EG:

Product: Aerial
Anything else asda, like maybe some spec! oO

Tried God knows how many of these in the past. Not this particular one though. I've never had much luck so far but the above comments make me wonder if it's worth one last try...

Asda out of stock now too (let me checkout before telling me)

How does this compare to the SLX Gold? (The one I have). Just wondering if anyone has a direct comprison. amazon.co.uk/dig…7E0

There's now an "SLX Gold Deluxe" but no idea what the differences are between the two. philex.com/cat…160 "4G Ready"??

Boosting your signal will likely do more harm than good... an amp boosts the good along with the bad so if you're getting break up when busses etc drive past there is likely a fault somewhere else in the aerial system....could be poor cable or the aerial not mounted high enough to avoid electrical noise from those busses and vans. .If you were getting a poor signal then maybe an amp could help a bit .. it's a cheap fix if it works before calling out the professionals
all indoor aerials are pretty poor to be honest unless you are in a good signal area and have not many walls blocking the signal.. best used in upstairs rooms.... even better to avoid them altogether IMO

Location is everything with indoor aerials, really. I've read that you should position the aerial at the window, and have it horizontal or vertical, depending on which way the aerials on neighbours' roofs are aligned.

I'm guessing if you haven't had much luck with indoor aerials they're not for you.

From here: avforums.com/thr…82/
"Signal strength (or field strength) can vary enormously indoors; it's unpredictable because wall and partition construction has to be factored in along with any other obstacles (wardrobes, metallic picture frames etc.).
You would do best to perform the initial installation (channel finding) at the house of a neighbour who has a correctly installed outdoor aerial so you can plug its downlead into your TV.
Subsequently you may be able to find a suitable position at home to receive at least some available channels and experiment with indoor aerial siting - but with no guarantee of success; at least you should then have the correct channels stored."
"Distance from the transmitter, sensitivity/efficiency of the aerial, sensitivity of the receiver/TV, obstructions etc. all have to be taken into account and, in your situation, whether the aerial is actually facing (in an inside room) towards the transmitter"

Sounds like the antenna you have isn't pointing in exactly the right direction. Most good TVs have a built in signal strength and signal quality meter. Use this to try readjusting the antenna.

BIG BAD BILL

I own the SLX Gold Indoor Aerial and it works great in my bedroom (I'm in the city centre - have a rooftop aerial in the living room). I was just curious about the differences (if any) with the newer, "Deluxe" model. I've read that indoor aerials advertised as "Digital" are nonsense and just a buzz-word to encourage sales.

Got this one for boyf but he lives in a more remote area. At least, as others have mentioned, Amazon are good with returns, so we'll see how we get on.

Glad to hear this one works well, pruchased one a month ago but haven't had a chance to set it up yet.

Also, my niece has the SLX Gold too (bought replace a One For All indoor model she had, can't remember which one, as I got on so well with mine) and it works much better than her old one.

The similarities we share is that there aren't really any obstructions (aerial at window), we're both in "upstairs" locations and near a city centre.

It does come with a plug. Signal isn't excellent so if your quite far from the nearest transmitter it might be better getting a more expensive one. This is meant for up to 15miles.

Whoops. I forgot to mention I only have indoor aerial as rent a ground floor flat and no aerials wired in to flat, nothing on roof either. Lots of flippin satellite dishes but no normal aerials.

Reluctantly decided to cancel. The estimated delivery time of 28 February - 21 March (!!) was just far too long for me!

spot on...it's all hype....plus anything that has 38db of gain claimed can't be good... proper masthead amps top out at about 34db and they are seldom used... most common amps used range from about 9-25db and they are low noise masthead types... recommended minimum signal level for freeview is 45db so think how poor of a signal you would be amplifying for to try a 38db amp.

Finally someone talking numbers. Thanks for this info.
For anyone wondering if they should buy, keep this in mind. Check the distance from your house to the transmitter (you will find this info online).
The antenna box should have this info printed on it (up to what distance will work). If it says 15 on the box, that will probably be without any obstructions in between, as well.

That one doesn't have a 4G filter.

I was wondering if the SLX Gold Deluxe "4G Ready" was just another buzzword to bump up sales, just as some are described as "Digital" indoor aerials?

telegraph.co.uk/tec…tml

"Ofcom’s estimate that 2.3 million households could have their television signal disrupted is based on some complicated physics and a lot of guesswork.

Nobody can yet say whether individual homes will suffer because it will depend on how operators roll out their 4G networks. Indeed, regulators trebled their original estimate of 760,000 households affected to up to 2.3 million after industry figures said it had underestimated the number and power of the base stations that will be installed. The government is taking a "wait and see" approach to the scale of the problem.

There are factors that make it more likely Freeview viewers will suffer disruption, however. The main risk will come from living close to a 4G base station. "


We've had leaflets here recently advising tenants to get in touch if they have problems with the 4G switchover, with TV reception. You can apply for one filter per household. telegraph.co.uk/tec…tml

It's not for me

Where he is, they barely have 3G, 4G might appear next century at the rate they're going up in the Highlands

£10 at asda direct. I bought one the other day! Fantastic for me!

Also comes with the plug but read the comments and they say its OOS.
I live apparently 6 miles from emley moor mast, this is apparently good for up to 9 miles.

Does it say 9 miles on the box?

Wow, that site is just brilliant! Thanks.
