    COM7 Crystal Palace

    I am 14 miles away from Crystal Palace and get 100% strength and quality from channels 23-28 but almost nothing on 55. Looking at the diagnostics, the flicker of signal I get every now and again just isn't enough to tune to. Anyone have similar issues or could suggest anything to help? TIA

    Question Do TVs with DVB-T2 tuners built in, automatically receive HD channels over aeriel?

    I'm in the UK. This is the TV I'm looking at: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07SMLNX4G/ There is no Freeview HD service apparently, but it's not clear to me if that means it will only be able to receive SD channels out of the box. Does it mean it will see less HD channels than if it had...

    Question Is there a 40" TV that's good for just Freeview SD/HD?

    I'm looking for a 40" TV that will mainly be used for watching Freeview SD & HD channels and used with a Fire stick. Netflix, Sky, etc are unlikely ever to be used. I understand the latest UHD, 4K TV's show up the poor quality of SD channels, and as its for a bedroom, 40" is big enough. All of...

    I thought I would share my whole house networked Freeview HD recorder experience, to replace a now dead Windows Media Center with two Freesat HD tuners. So far, I can't believe how well this new wave of hardware tuners and software works, even with 4K and HDR. My goal is a whole house HD...

    Question Freeview HD looks better than Netflix 4K!

    Why is is that Freeview HD images look brighter and clearer then 4K stuff from Netflix. We've just watched Bright on NF then switched to The Wolverine on C4. The Wolverine looked great. Clear, colourful but only HD. The colours really popped where NF always seems dull. This is on an LG...
