Do I need to get an aerial or can I connect my old sky dish st
Saturday 24 September 2011 9:45PM

Hi there. I've just moved into a new house and I've never seen so many TV sockets - in virtually every room. There's also a Virgin media box in one room and some kind of box on an external wall. There's what I think of as an old fashioned aerial on the roof too. All of the sockets in the house are what I gather are called "F plugs". I don't recognise them and just want to plug my TV in using my coaxial cables. I've changed the plugs but my TV picks up absolutely nothing. I'm getting a BT line in a few days - vital for various reasons - and will have BT Vision available from then assuming I can get a signal. Really what I want to know is what chance there is that any of the sockets will be connected to the roof-top aerial and how can I get a picture on to my TV? Don't mind waiting till BT have sorted out my phone line, but had assumed I'd be able to get the analogue channels somehow. Grateful for any ideas. Have never had TV problems before so please excuse complete amateruishness.
