    The quality of the picture is down to the freeview box, if the signal is breaking up then a new aerial may help.

    In a strong signal area it is most important to use good quality double-screened coaxial cable - otherwise the cable acts as an aerial and causes picture problems.

    You might also suffer from reflected signals which, on analogue, causes ghosting. The effect is not obvious with digital but it can cause "dropout". An "anti-ghost" aerial with fairly low gain might be useful.
