It's all gone pear shaped!

I came into the 21st century 2 weeks ago and bought a flatscreen LED TV. It's used with a PVR and all had been fine for 2 weeks. This afternoon the picture quality is awful with 'weak signal' displayed - yet the picture is fine through the PVR and on the analogue TV elsewhere in the house - so it cant be an aerial/cabling problem can it??? Any clues for the clueless?

Different kit has different sensitivities.

Most likely your PVR is making a better go of handling a weak signal. However, it could be that that there is a cabling/connection issue. Try exchanging cables to double check none of them are faulty.

Is the aerial signal looped through the PVR or is the cable split between it & the tv?

I would use the loopthrough, provided it works with the recorder in standby.
