Paul Upex: What is is that you can't receive? Where about are you? Please provide a postcode so we can see your predicted reception.

Billy: No, your Tivo box can't receive Freeview and you won't get any free channels via cable if you cancel with Virgin.

I live in Newhaven Sussex and at the moment freeview channels are few, my aerial is directed towards the main antenna in Newhaven which is tothe West.

I am told that if i change the direction towards the East (crowborough I think) I shold get a better selection.

Is this correct, if so its a cheaper option than a dish and free sat.

Kind regards Paul

Paul Teti: We need a postcode to see what your predicted coverage is and whether aligning your aerial on an alternative transmitter would indeed give you more channels. Having a dish and cabling installed for Freesat probably wouldn't be any more expensive than having your aerial changed (unless you have any trees or tall buildings blocking the satellite signal, making it necessary to locate the dish further away or higher up) but you would probably have to buy a Freesat box (unless your TV has a built in satellite tuner and you don't want a separate PVR for recording).
