Resolving Lagging Video and Audio with a 5G/LTE Filter

Modified on Tue, 10 Oct 2023 at 05:00 AM

Q: Why is my video or audio freezing or lagging when I have a good signal?


A: If you're experiencing freezing or lagging video or audio despite having a strong signal, it's possible that you're encountering interference from LTE Band 71, also known as the 600 MHz spectrum. Some mobile carriers use this frequency for their 4G and 5G networks, and can sometimes interfere with your TV or audio reception.


Q: How can I resolve this issue?


A: To potentially resolve this issue, you can consider purchasing a 5G/LTE filter designed to pass frequencies up to 608 MHz and block frequencies above that range, including LTE Band 71 (608 MHz and above). These filters are specifically engineered to reduce interference from LTE Band 71 and similar frequency bands. Installing a filter between your antenna or cable line and your TV or audio equipment can mitigate interference and improve your video and audio quality.


Q: Where can I buy a 5G/LTE filter?


A: You can find 5G/LTE filters at electronics stores, online retailers, or through your cable or satellite TV provider. When purchasing a filter, verify that it can pass frequencies up to 608 MHz while blocking frequencies above that range.


Q: How do I install a 5G/LTE filter?


A: Installing a 5G/LTE filter is typically straightforward. You will need to disconnect your antenna or cable line from your TV or audio equipment, attach the filter to the cable, and then reconnect the cable to your equipment. Please follow the manufacturer's instructions for your specific filter to make sure it's properly installed.


Q: Will a 5G/LTE filter completely eliminate interference?


A: While a 5G/LTE filter can significantly reduce interference from LTE Band 71 and similar frequency bands, its effectiveness may vary depending on your specific location and the strength of the interfering signals. In some cases, you may also need to adjust your antenna or positioning to optimize reception.
