My TV with freeview built in always hangs / freezes on ANY BBC channel.
I suspect it is due to it being a cheapy model but scouring around 'the net' it appears a too strong signal will possibly do this.
I did try a variable attenuator with no success. Only 3 miles from Olivers Mount in Scarborough and have a booster fitted purely to get a second tv signal up to the bedroom. I have tried with no booster. Loft aerial which has been there during the analogue days.
The cheapy tv does not have a signal strength / quality indicator so I am relying now on advice before throwing the said TV out of the bedroom window.
Maybe some more attenuators?? although I did try holding the coax plug just close to the a signal just...and it still blooming well froze.
Only BBC though....bizarre.

Mike B:
Its a Logik TV which probably falls into the same category. I will hold on from discarding it into the garden....for now.
