No need for an adapter or anything I am assuming Marki?

Should plug straight into the aerial socket on your tv/sky box or similar.

Yes looks like a standard coax socket and should need a male connector at each end to plug straight into a TV. If running it via a basic tv tuner box/PVR you may need the adapter and another length of coax cable to run on to the TV but most likely HDMI cable from the box to TV. Avoid the self install connectors and go for good quality pre made cable/connectors as it is very easy to short circuit the earth sheathing wires when fitting them. Look for something like 'RG59' cable which is 75ohm and well shielded. Something like this.

It will be a cable going from the socket in the wall straight into a TV which has a Freeview Tuner built-in.

So have purchased the Fly Lead cable as suggested by Marki - tried plugging it in to the wall socket and the back of the TV but, the TV won't pick up any signal via the aerial. Is there something obvious I am missing?

Difficult to say from a distance (for me anyway), but it would suggest that either the tv or aerial are faulty. At this point I would get a grown up in to take a look, but that’s me.

Is that wall socket linked to an aerial or a satellite dish on your external roof/wall ? Freeview needs an Aerial and Freesat needs a satellite dish I believe .

Silly question, but have you re-tuned the TV after plugging the cables in?

If it's anything like my house, you'll be disappointed to discover that it isn't connected to anything on the other end!!

Cheech - yeah have tried to do a re-tune but, it produces no channels.

There is an aerial on the side of the house but, I cannot get up there to double check that it is connected to anything in the wall at ground level. I will email the new landlady and get her to send someone round. I know that the TV is working fine as I unplugged it from one house and transported it to the new one, I had attempted to do a re-tune within an hour of unplugging so it won't be that.

Probably an aerial issue in that case.

Yes sounds like the aerial is not connected or shorting out somewhere? The wall socket looks quite ancient so it could be worth checking that the cable is connected and not shorting behind the plate. The other possibility is that it is all connected but the aerial has turned in the wind and is not picking up signals. In the days of analogue TV a badly directed aerial might pick up some fuzzy signals but these days you will have to have it directed properly or you will receive nothing. Have a look at your aerial and see if it points in the same direction as your neighbours then most likely you can discount that its pointing the wrong way unless the previous tenant watched Dutch TV.

Norwich - I take it your TV is a TV rather than a monitor

Rather than rely on outside aerial that might not be connected, get one of those internal flat window aerials for about a fiver from amazon.

The higher the room above ground the more channels you get. 24 down stairs, 64 upstairs via freeview

If you do have internet there and the aerial is broke/out of tune, then it might be easier to invest in a firestick and watch tv through that instead. I have no freeview where i live due a big hill behind the house. Granted you wont have many of those in Norfolk.

Well, if it was me paying to get it sorted then I don't think I will bother. Can get most things I need via Chromecast and PS4 in the Living Room where the TV is. I did look at a window aerial, but, it is in the City Centre on street level so I doubt I would get any kind of signal from it.

If, the landlady is willing to get someone out and get it looked at then brilliant, if not, then we will make do with the Chromecast and PS4
