Which cables please?!

Hello everyone.

Just purchased a new freeview box that is Internet enabled and this bit of it works fine however the ordinary signal for tv is not good so purchased a booster box.

Ive connected from the freeview box to the booster using a coaxial cable and I've used the same cable type to connect from the booster to the walksocket aerial input but my freeview receiver says "The receiver is not receiving a signal or the signal is too weak".

I'm not entirely sure that the coaxial cable I have connected up is sufficient - would this be the correct one to use for all connections or are the metal ones more suitable?

Thanks in advance for any help

I'd try both your individual cables between your freeview box and the wall socket. That'll tell you which of the two is broken. If they both work then I'd suspect the booster box is dodgy rather than the cable.

Metal ones? I don't think you can get non-metal cables.
