Digital tv reception

  El Supremo 00:17 10 Oct 2007

Hi, I didn't really know where else to post this so I thought I'd put it here...

I'm currently living in a student house in Swansea, South Wales. Since I've been here I've had terrible interference when trying to tune in my freeview box (tv). I'd put it down to there being a poor signal in the area, however, my room mate gets perfect reception when he runs the outdoor aerial to his freeview box. It is also worth noting that I too once had good reception using a £4.99 aerial.

Oh and btw, I live in a terraced house with thick walls.

Is there anyway can I remedy my problem? Would a booster work? Are there any great indoor aerials around?

Many thanks for your help.

Can't you put a splitter in the Outdoor aerial and share the signal, with a small amplifier to boost the signal if necessary.

The room mate might not be too happy to lose around half his aerial's signal strength..:-)

That's why I suggested an amplifier, if necessary.
