Hi all. I'm a newbie. I have a concern over my tv ariel. My tv freeview hasn't worked for ages and I bought a new cable to go in wall socket but still nothing. Today I had an ariel engineer come over who advised that my current tv ariel on roof was getting little to no signal. Even a new one was the same. He advised me yo get new ariel mask (which he did) and have a amplifier connected to it and the cable/lead will go straight through to the tv I'm using, with a booster at back of tv, not through the loft or the wall sockets. Basically the lead will run from the tv ariel on roof, across the rest of roof and then will go through the back wall to the lounge. Making the wall sockets none existent. Is this normal? I'm so used to getting new ariel mask and just connecting my tv's to the wall socket in previous house.
