    we have just signed up for Setanta Sports, for the premier league games,
    the big problem is, it freezes and go off reguarly..it is very frustrating, as my fave team Man Utd, are playing as i write...
    it is not watchable.
    We have a Philex High Gain Wideband Digital Aerial at the moment, and very new cabling.
    the 'freezing' does happen on other channels, but doesnt seem to freeze as much.
    If we are in a Weak signal area, then wat cheap-ish ways to help the signal can we do? i have added a booster, but doesnt seem to help. :thumbsdow
    if anyone has any reasons for this &/or ways to help then it will be very appreciated :D

    It would help if we knew your location & which transmitter you are recieving Freeview from. Unfortunately all transmitters are far from equal.

    Setanta is provided on one of the stronger output muxes but whether this is sufficient in your case all depends on your location. What other channels do you experience problems with?

    Well, i live in burton-on-trent, the freezing happens on pretty much all channels, but ALOT more on setanta, Film4 too also Eurosport.
    it says (i think) we're recieving the signal from Sutton Coldfield. which is 25miles away..if thats makes any difference at all ?!
