Digital TV Tuning Frequencies In Sydney

Are you trying to manually tune in your digital TV channels in Sydney? If so, this article is for you. If you live in North Sydney, Campbelltown or Wollongong, we have the help you need.
Manual Digital TV Tuning Sydney

In order for your digital TV tuner to display picture and audio on your TV, it needs to be tuned in to digital TV signals that get broadcast from a nearby TV transmitter. In Sydney, there are 4 main transmitters that can be used. Those transmitters are located at:

  • Artarmon (VHF; main Sydney transmitter)
  • Kings Cross (UHF)
  • Kurrajong (UHF)
  • Wollongong (UHF)

Digital TV Auto Tuning

Most TVs have an ‘auto-tune’ function which will mean the TV will do all the hard work for you and search for all DTV signals (and also FM radio signals that are being received by your antenna). However, if that is causing you issues (perhaps it is tuning in the wrong channels from the wrong transmitter by mistake), then the manual digital TV tuning option is the one to select.

Digital TV Manual Tuning in Sydney

If you are having issues with your TV’s auto tuning option, and have decided to try manual TV tuning, then here are the frequencies and bands you will need to select.

The first step, however, is to check what type of antenna you have got on your roof. Digital TV antennas in Sydney are designed to be either:

  • VHF only (Very High Frequency). These digital antennas have longer elements (arms).
  • UHF only (Ultra High Frequency). These digital antennas have shorter elements (arms), and often have more elements than VHF antennas.
  • Combination (VHF and UHF). These digital antennas have both short and long elements (arms).

Once you have discovered what type of antenna you have got, you will need to ensure it is pointing to the right transmitter (match it up with the transmitters listed above). 

OK, so you know you have a VHF antenna pointed to a VHF transmitter (or a UHF antenna pointed to a UHF transmitter). Now it is time to start the manual tuning.

Digital TV Manual Tuning Frequencies in Sydney

Manual tuning ensures that your TV tuner is ‘looking at’ the frequency wave bands that are carrying the TV channels that you want to watch.

So, let’s take a look at what those frequencies are for each Free To Air Digital TV Channel at Sydney’s TV transmitters.

From Deborah, to Frederico, the three "L" (you know who you are) JUST BLOODY BRILLIANT. Small business can suck, this one should be going great guns, the service and follow up second to none, the workmanship (or is it just work these days) just amazing, Fred (erico) is a perfectionist and it shows. This is my first home purchase and i wanted a smart look for it, so I have Nu Life mount 2 TV's for me. Just incredible! you can see for yourself. Don't look anywhere else, Nu-Life are your one stop shop, better yet pricing was incredible and they even provide the brackets. Don't think you can do it yourself, spend a small amount and get it done RIGHT Thanks Brenda, Arthur, Lara, Lisa and Laura
