Hi, I have had a freeview box about three weeks and the signal was pretty poor, freezing, blocky etc and the signal was hovering around the 30% mark. Had a new aerial mounted on the chimney and after retuning all the stations the picture appears to be smoother and the signal strength is now about 50%. The installer chap was not convinced that fitting a new lead with no joins instead of the three or four joins that are in the existing lead would improve things any further. This lead is at least 25 years old so not modern satellite stuff at all. What is your opinion? If I had a new lead fitter with no joints would the digital strength increase and what effect does a stronger signal have? Does the digital or analogue image improve still further as the signal strength improves?
