    I have a second LCD in bedroom with built in freeview now my problem is i cant take main aerial to bedroom so was wondering what my best option would be should i either get a magic box to send sky signal having the same channel doesnt bother me, or should i go for a digital indoor aerial cost about £34.99 from argos.Which one will give me best signal.

    Unless the transmitter is right on top of you I would not bother with a indoor aerial.

    There's no such thing as digital aerial. All UHF TV aerials have to have similar properties regardless of whether intended for digital or analogue reception - RF itself is analogue.
    If you look in the Freeview section of these forums (search it for "indoor aerial" you'll find lots of comments and results).
    Andy's statement sums it up though IMO.

    Yes? and it depends on where you live. It maybe excellent in your location but if I was to buy it for freeview where I live, 40 miles from the nearest transmitter. I don't think so. So quite a sweeping statement "excellent reception" or do you live around the corner from the person who asked the original question.

    compared to the all in one amplified crap , the aerial does give a great reception which is a valid statement.

    i suggest you move your house nearer to civilization
