    Hi guys.

    I am Using a freeview card in my pc and i get most of the channels from using my comunal aerial on top of my block of flats, The only problem is that on most channels it judders intermittantly, I am getting 35 - 45% signal depending on what channel i am on, I have some normal b&q coax cable and am using a signal booster at the aerial outlet and a smaller in line signal booster at the pc end, what can i do? would throwing more signal boosters or a better signal booster in line make any differance? would upgrading the cable make much of a differance?

    Thanks
    Colin

    I solved my Freeview reception problems by fitting a new rooftop aerial, however that could be quite expensive for you, I would look into it though.
    A booster will help in some cases and better quality shielded cable is a must but you can't beat having good reception in the first place.

    Not very helpful I know:(
