Hello
I have recently bought a 32 inch Samsung tv which states that it is freeview ready. I connected the old aerial which I used with the old tv (via a set top clarity box). The old aerial which is indoor give good reception on a good range of channels. However I don't get UTV or CH4, or CH5 (note that I do not use the old clarity set top box now). My postcode is BT38 7NJ. I am not quite sure which transmitter my signal comes from as there are Black Mountain, Carmoney, and Whitehead. I am a bit puzzled as I expected the new TV to pick up on all channels. I have retuned it a dozen times but I still don't get these three channels. Is there anything obvious about this. The signal quality test reads 100, and the signal test strength reads 95 on a lot of the other freeview channels.

Hello
I was looking at some "one for all" aerials and I had though that the SV 9495 should do what i want. What I am not quite clear about is what difference the higher decibel rating does. On this model it is given as 54 Db. Is there a simple way of understanding the higher Db on this model.

Regards

Austin
