Perhaps because many of us are in better reception areas than you appear to be. I've been using DVB-T from Emley Moor since the days of ONDigital, with my original aerial and downlead. In a second room, I have another aerial in the loft. In both places I get 100% glitch-free reception (except if using the Pace Twin, but that's another tale) and always have. I'm about 30 miles away but I can see the mast (with binoculars) from my upstairs windows.sean5302 said:Wonder why anyone bothers with Freeview

I can't in Ipswich, our friends in Edenbridge, Kent can't, the outlaws in Burgess Hill can't, the ex outlaws in Hastings can't, my brother in law can't.
