Hi, in response to these people's quetions, may I add that AFTER the digital switchover in the UK in April 2012 ALL Freeview signals will be much stronger. I myself are in a strong signal area, but use just a loft ariel and cheap-plug in signal booster. I CAN receive MOST of the Freeview channels with this set up, using my combi freeview box connected to a standard scart-TV (NON-HD TV or anything like that).

In response to questions regarding satellite dishes, may I add you need a separate standard rooftop or high-gain ariel to receive Terrestial TV or Freeview. To run Freesat and Freeview at the same time for example you would need BOTH a satellite dish AND a rooftop ariel, ideally. Along with this you would ALSO need either a scart switcher connected to the 2 boxes with scart leads andor an LNB signal splitter, since one signal is DVB-T (terrestial) and the other is DVB-S (satellite).

I hope this helps you all?

Thanks, from Dan. :)

In response to Pinkie, have you tried looking in Argos or Ebay for cheap plug-in-the-mains signal boosters?

That is what I use for my Freeview. :)

I have read about this, as it will soon be on offer from current ISP, TalkTalk. In response to some of your comments here, it requires both a standard TV ariel AND a phoneline connection. Perhaps ISPs will offer the box free or cheaper to their customers when it comes out?
