Antenna reception poor

    I just installed an outside UHF antenna and my VHF/UHF one is in the
    roof. I installed the UHF one because I was getting poor signal on UHF
    channels. I am in Melbourne.
    I am using a diplexer on the UHF antenna mast. After installing it,
    the reception is worse on all channels. I have checked all the wiring
    several times. This is really frustrating because it's suppoed to be
    crystal on all channels.

    What can I do?

    ** Call an antenna installer / expert to come and fix it.

    Be prepared to get laughed at - however.

    Try it with the outdoor antenna connected directly to the TV (ie. no
    diplexer) and confirm that you get good reception on UHF. You may even find
    you are in a good enough position to get VHF as well depending on your
    location. Once you confirm the UHF antenna works by itself, then insert the
    diplexer without the other antenna and make sure that works, then put the
    inside antenna onto the diplexer. Step by step.....


  4. Return the new antenna and exchange for a digital set top box. Plug it in
    and away you go.
