Can anyone help, I have a Freeview HD+ recorder with one of those funny little loop through situations at the back with a little jumper cable between RF out 1 (Aerial is connected to RF in 1) and RF in 2 (cable then goes from RF out 2 to my tv). However after a few days the picture has become jumpy and freezes. I have discovered that if I plug the aerial into RF in 1 and tyhen straight from RF out 1 to my TV the picture is crystal clear and no problems. It seems there is a massive loss of signal strength and quality as it goes through the second reciever (however the recording function requires this to be looped as originally set up). My question is would buying a more expensive Freeview+ HD recorder result in better quality or do I need to look at increasing my freeview signal strength?

Or could I supply two seperate signals one to each reciever in the box (rather than the second one getting its signal from the first one via the loop cable), as I have two working aerials on my roof at the moment.
