I recently asked ?s about satelite TV & got good answers thank you for those who answered me - could anyone tell me I have a good quality Hitachi 'freeview' box with HD, but my roof ariel keeps freezing my digital channels, if I fit an outside satelite dish & connect it to my Digi Box what channels will I be able to receive
A Freeview box will only work with an aerial it will not work via the Sat dish. If you're having problems with channel freezing the problem could be the aerial or the cable from the aerial especially if it is old.
If the deterioration is recent it might be worthwhile having a local aerial firm check it out for you.
Old Co-ax, poor or weather damaged junctions as well as the Aerial itself which might pre-date the digital switchover or even become simply mis-aligned.
All these things can weaken the signal, and where in analogue days the picture 'snowed' or broke up, a digital signal will freeze, become 'pixellated' or simply cut out altogether, usually with a brief announcment - Bad signal
