in our new house we had a sky dish with 8 lnb set up to go to 2 rooms and new freeview aerial to 2 other rooms. Downstairs our new sony freeview plus box and sony tv work well but with arquiva A ( I think, Dave, E4 +1, Sky news) working intermittently. Upstairs old boxy tv and old thomson freeview box don't get much of arquiva A or B. We are on top of hill ( in low lying cloud at times) near Bristol and presumably receive from Mendip transmitter and have absolutely no obstructions between us and it. Aerials on roof. BUT, when we unplug our aerials the signal is pretty much the same or maybe slightly diminished only!!! Does this mean our aerial is not connected somewhere on the roof? ( can't get hold of person who fitted it for us) as presumably we are receiving signal through the aerial cable? And the slight improvement when plugged in could be because an even longer bit of wire is acting as aerial. Our fitter did say we had 100% signal on roof.

Also, we lose the sky channels pop, tiny pop, pop girl often at night, or in bad weather, but sometimes when it's ok in day. We used to have no problem with them when we lived in bottom of valley. Does this happen to satellite telly?
