    What should I look for and/or need as I have absolutrly no idea?

    Reached the end of my tether with NTL so its going. Don't watch half the channels on there so have decided to go the freeview route.

    I don't have an ariel at the moment so I'll need one of those - type/cost recomedations please. I'll also need a STB so your opinons on those would be helpfulas well.

    I take it you get widescreen pictures through freeview?

    Can I run more than one TV from the ariel, the same as you would with normal telly?

    Thanks

    Daisy chaining is easy

    eg my aerial goes through TV, then Twin, then SLHF950, then M40 then DTVA
