What are the aerial types about? Are they high-gain? | Help! Fr

I would really appreciate some help:

I have a new Samsung TV with built in Freeview HD. From the channels list, I seem to be receive the Freeview HD channels that are available in my area. From the postcode search I apprear to be 24 miles from Crystal Palace.

However, my problem is with the reception of freeview HD. While normal freeview works fine, the HD is un-watchable. The picture breaks up much like a sky dish in heavy rain.

I have a booster connected to the roof mounted aerial, and a single cable that has been spliced into three to service three TV sets in the house. My suspicion is the cable splicing is to blame for the lack of reception, but some confirmation would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
