    Freeview signal/aerial problem

    Freeview signal/aerial problem 11th Nov 05 at 4:31 PM

    I thought it would be a good idea to buy a freeview box for a portable tv upstairs - so i did - but i assume, due to the portable aerial, it doesn;t get a strong enough signal to transmit the channels - it finds them ok but there's no picture/sound, or its very blocky.

    Is there any equipment that i could buy to solve this, dont really want to fork out to have the main aerial from the roof adapted just for this.

    I've seen in dixons that you can get "aerial boosters" but am wary of buying from dixonsesque places as they aren't famed for the customer service, and as i aint sure what will work, thought i'd ask for some advice. There's also things on ebay like "2 way aerail boosters" and "digital aerial boosters" but again not sure what i should be looking for.

  • Surprised at a few nasty replies re cilla. The respectful thing when someone dies is say nice or say nowt. Grieving relatives may be reading

  • You can judge your age by what #cilla means to you. For me its not the singing, its blind date and surprise surprise. Sad news #ripcilla
