When something goes wrong with a TV’s picture, people are quick to blame the aerial. However, there are many other reasons why you may be having technical difficulties. One possibility is that there is too much signal. It could be overloading your TV.

Can the signal really be too strong?

Believe it or not, this is a legitimate problem. It is often funny telling someone the reason they are having trouble with the TV is because they had too strong of a signal. All of the active gear you own will come with a maximum signal level. Thus, objects like TVs and amplifiers can overload when there is too much.

In addition, this is how things like 4G and 5G, and Tetra interference cause issues. The fact they are there on the aerial cable isn’t a concern. It is when they gain too much strength and overload everything they become problematic.
