Checked the availability and reception on the freeview website and everything was fine. So I went out and got myself a Sony VTX800U freeview box. Very pleased with it and its got optical out aswell. Anyway, tuned it in and everything was great - for a day. I cancelled my cable TV sunscription there and then cos I was that pleased! The second night I came back from work to sit down to some TV and a beer, but the picture quality on anything but BBC channels was appalling. Its now a week since and I have tried tuning it in again but to no avail. I can't understand why it worked fine for one day. Anyway, the aerial on my roof is God knows how old - Is it time for an upgrade? Or would it be money down the drain? Terrestrial channels are perfect. Also if I go ahead and upgrade is there anything specific I should be asking these cowboy installers for, so they dont rip me off? (I hate using tradesmen - but I'm not getting up on ma roof!!). Thanks for your help guys.
