Yello one and all.

Anyone else noticing that picture quality has taken a hit after this switchover? Most of my channels are more noticeably pixellated/ low-bit-rate-seeming (including Beeb output). Before the 18th, I had better reception.

Yes, did the factory reset milarkey. Yes, I have all the channels.. but signal quality rating appears to have dropped off on some.

Granted, I have a donkeys' years old roof antenna that's dwarfed by the neighbour's fancy, fully-featured mast just beside it (perhaps he's stealing some of my waves ;)), and we used to get terrible ghosting in analogue mode (analogue Channel 5 had all but disappeared); nevertheless, digital reception has been pretty good til the great switcheroo came round.

Our TV is a modern, all-singing all-dancing Panasonic Freeview HD number, bought last December. Big deal! Not much use if the signal is going to be pants like this...

Are there others who are less than impressed with the arrival of the new era in broadcasting?

JB38: if by booster, you mean signal amplification within the home, I haven't got any.

What am I testing for using the method you suggest? Also, what type of wire is adequate for this (how about an unbent wire hanger)?

Thanks for your help.
