Do I need to buy a booster? | Installing

Hi,

I have just moved into a new house in a new area and I don't seem to have any signal from the TV aerial at all. My TV is about 2 years old, it's a digital TV with built in Freeview. I've tried scanning for new TV channels (on DTV too), but all I get is static.

Do you think this is a problem with the aerial, my TV, do I need a Freeview box of some nature, or am I just being thick?! Any help you give would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Thanks jb38.

I've scanned on the standard setting (analogue I guess) and on DTV (is this the same as DVB?). All I get is static.

There's a satellite dish on the side of the house, but this shouldn't effect the aerial signal coming from the roof, or does it? I've traced the cable from the satellite dish and it seem independent of any other cabling.

Thanks again. Jonathan

Thanks again jb38,

We checked with one neighbour who said that they had a poor signal when they first moved in (2 years ago). They said that they had to buy a box (not sure if this is a booster, free view box or what) which improved the signal. Sorry if this is a bit vague, it wasn't me who spoke to them! I'll try and check the aerial alignment tonight if its not too dark.

Thanks for all your help.
