It is interesting reading the comments about Suzanne's problems with Freeview Ch 59 and the suggestion that it may be aerial problems. I live about 10 miles west of Beckley and we have 5 TVs in the house of which 3 are attached to loft and set top aerials. I had one bedroom TV connected to a bif loft aerial but when acquiring a further bedroom TV decided to try connecting it to a set top aerial and chose the Which best buy - the Telecam TCE 2000. To my surprise this produced a higher power signal than the loft even though it was in a less poorer position for reception. The loft aerial sometimes gave blocky pictures so I replaced it with another Telecam TCE 2000 placed in the loft and the signal improved enormously. Now since DSO, the loft Telecam produces 10 out of 10 signal strength and the bedroom Telecam has gone from 6 to 8 out of 10. I bought my Telecam aerials for £10 from Argos as I could take it back if it did not work but Argos does not stock it now but Amazon does at £13. Suzanne might find this worth a try.
