    Hi

    Just go rid of cable and am going to get freeview but i have a couple of questions first. Am i right in saying that an outside ariel is needed?.
    Cos if so my ariel that feeds into my living room is knackered but my bedroom one works. so instead of having to feed the ariel from the bedroom to my living room will something like a magic eye work, enabling me to have the box in the bedroom but change the channel in the living room?.

    Cheers

    If the signal is good enough then you can get away with either a fixed indoor aerial or a small portable wideband aerial.
    Of course indoor aerials are very hit and miss, the reception can very much depend upon the construction of the building and the aerials placement:)

    Not aware of a "magic eye" system on DTT boxes (they may be though), however I suppose a wireless videosender would work in a similar manner.
