Hi, I live on BS3 3PG and bought a new tv recently with built in Freeview.
The TV that was in the lounge used to struggle with some freeview channels, but is now in the conservatory and works perfectly - the new tv however is not picking up any channels at all!

So initially I spoke to a customer advisor at LG, who told me to boost the signal (which didn't work) then I spoke to a lady at from the Digital UK site and she said that our signal would be too strong if anything & advised me to buy a Variable Attenuator.

So that just arrived, (though it had no instructions) and I'm still stuck. Do I literally need to repeatedly auto tune changing the dial in tiny increments to find a signal? Or is there a simpler way?

Also, I've plugged a small tv aerial lead into the attenuator thing, and then have a longer cable running to the aerial point in the wall - is that correct?

Sorry, I'm not overly competent with electrical stuff!

Thanks - K
