Iam using a tuner with my computer which is running XP SP3 it seems OK but on BBC Channels the picture is prone to freeze particularly with changes to Black and White pictures. It is not signal level because that is fine. Could it be that I need more memory 1Gb at the moment? I have no trouble on BBCi player.

normally this would be an aerial problem - more memory may well help but not if it is aerial trouble.

Signal levelmis relatively unimportant its signal quality that really counts .If you r tuner does not shownthat it would guess its is still a reception problem.No comparism with Iplayer different format

Also worth checking your graphics card drivers are up to date.

Also when you set up the tv signal see if the bbc channels are listed on a different frequency.
I dont use the default frequency on my tv card because it freezes and stutters
