Hi,due to size,tv speakers seldom give clarity,they are simply fitted to be a complete,if you want clarity,you need larger speaker,eg hifi speakers fitted on the wall,etc..............

hi,for viewers who have technical knowledge,is to replace the aluminum dipole in the aerial with copper wire dipole,this must be bent to look like the aluminum dipole and may improve reception,i have done this with a indoor aerial and got a locked picture from hannington at 10ft off the ground ,location nr bicester,but i stress u must have some technical knowledge.

Andrew,i think i may have the answer,on the signal strength,the meter shows,Signal strength and signal quality,even though i live in a swamp area,the signal quality goes up and down like a fruit machine,so unless
you 60-70 percent constant,the freezing starts,i try not to get irrated by it,sometimes,switch on/off,and rescan seems to help,hope that helps.Since i have an indoor aerial on top of telly,its easy to move around,but im lucky practially next door to the oxford tx.

Hi mikep,thank you for yr polite reply,other people seem to be otherwise,in my eperience in using insulated copper wire seems to be fine,the tv or whatevers input circuitry seems to uncritical,i use a set top single element because im in a swamp area from oxford,before i changed it to a copper wire,in spite of the high
field strength it was troublesome,when changed to copper,hannington at 40miles,10ft above the ground produces a locked picture,the only disadvantage of copper sheet is the cost and the work involved.Possibly,in poor signal areas copper would produce a better and more stable picture,its a pity someone in a fringe area cant try it and advise,but again some technical knowledge is needed,tks............

Banacek: this seems to be a problem with todays tv circuitry,the tuner gets pulled to the strongest signal,i have a car radio that wouldnt hold a weak signal in the presence of a stronger signal,possible realign aerial or more directive type fitted.
