My high gain aerial can't get all the Freeview channels I e

Hi, (rowridge)
I have 2 aerials in my loft.
the first one is a knackered old thing with about 10 straight bars going across and leads downstairs. this gives perfect picture in the living room. The 2nd is a new fancy hi gain thing with many x-wing style bars going across and a couple of large reflector things on the back and goes to my bedroom and this gives me about 4 channels - bbc1, 2, 3 and cbbc. I also use a booster but without it i even lose the 4 channels.
How do I solve this bizarre problem? I've looked around a few websites but not solved anything. My best guess is something about a wideband aerial. Is a wideband aerial similar to my knackered old thing. do I need one of those? or do i have to wait til march next year and everything will instantly work out?
its not the tv (tunes perfectly downstairs) or cable i use (tried 3 cables) and cant run another lead off the original knackered old thing.

Bought the XB10A. Fingers crossed!
I'll give update when it arrives.
Anyone want to buy a fancy wideband aerial?
