I decided to take a peek at Freeview, so purchased a Ferguson FDT 500 (a rebadged Thomson DTI 500). After messing about with it for the best part of the day, I decided to check the aerial, and to my amazement found out the previous occupant had incorrectly mounted the loft aerial (it was left hanging loosly from the cable!). I remounted it roughly in the position I think it should be (pointing towards the local transmitter), and I can now get the box to tune in 80% or so of the channels. Unfortunatly absent are the ITV, ITV 2 and Channel 4. I found out the digital channel numbers through http://www.wolfbane.com/cgi-bin/tvd.exe, and tried to manually tune in the box, to no avail -- the signal appears to be too weak. I already have a small booster on the aerial, down by the freeview box. There is another extension in the house on the aerial that is not used -- will be disconnecting this tomorrow. There is also an unidentified cable on the aerial, which goes in the complete oppisite direction to the 'standard' cable.. Is it worth disconnecting this too ? Any suggestions, before I callout a CAI approved installer to take a look / quote for a new aerial?
