I have 2 digital radios - one (PURE) in the kitchen and I got a really good SONY one for the bedroom. It includeds a docking station for Ipod and radio as well as digital radio.

The aerial that came with it and plugs into the back is just a thin wire, which worked really well.

However, it has simply stopped picking up most channels that it used to get and although I can see them when I scroll channels, I either get nothing, or a bad signal. I have fiddled with the aerial, but it just doesn't do anything.

I can still get some channels, like talksport and classic really well, but not many.

The kitchen radio didn't pick everything up before, so difficult to compare and I am pretty sure its some sort of aerial issue.

Can anyone recommend a decent indoor aerial that is small, and doesn't look ugly - so I can try that?

Or any other ideas what could have happened?

There have recently been some reduction in the number of stations available on the national multiplex. Which stations have you lost?

I have lost a lot. Including Gaydar and Chill...
Many thanks mswarren...... I am astonished quite frankly, renders my digital radios almost useless to me now as there are almost no channels I am interested in left.

What a shame.
