I have had freeview since it started through my IDTV. Reception has always been fine. I bought a Phillips DTR 1500 to record to my Panasonic DVD recorder. The IDTV has a loopthrough, so I plugged the aerial into the IDTV and fed it through to the Phillips. I was getting break up on ITV/ITV 2 and Channel 4 chanels on the Phillips. It would only happen every couple of days or so. To sort it out, I would have to move the aerial cable. I have now put the aerial striaght into the Phillips and then to the IDTV. I am still getting the breakup. If the aerial is ok for the IDTV (which is next to the Phillips), why does the Phillips break up.
