The Care Home is responsible for the communal aerail on the home. Contact them and ask them to ensure that your mother is getting the TV signals she should. Also, put the post code of the home into the Digital UK coverage checker website at http://www.digitaluk.co.uk/coveragechecker/main/index/dummy/NA/yes. That will tell you which channels are being used so you can check that her TV is correctly tuned (the channels in use are usually shown on the manual tuning page - but do not do a retune unless it is clear it is tuned to the wrong channels.

Unfortunately, at the beginning of the century I suffered from a bad stroke that has left me badly disabled both physically & mentally. After having to endure Virgin Media (& I would like to stress 'endure', as it was costing me to nearly ?100 to be able to receive a half decent programme after having to wade through 'the best of somebody' or 'their greatest hits' - basically nothing that I'd seen before & didn't really fancy viewing them again. I am not in any way attracted to any kind of sport which virtual does nothing to me apart from putting me to sleep! I live on my own in a 2nd floor flat & am trying to see what 'freeserve' has to offer but even that has proved v. difficult to me to set up.

Richard Thorndycroft:

Freeserve no longer exists, so I suspect you really mean Freeview. All you need do is plug in a Freeview capable TV (almost all of them are nowadays) to your aerial system and make it performs an initial setup. That will find the channels that are available from your communal aerial. Check with your neighbours what channels they get from Freeview (some may be using Sky and some Freesat - both of which are different and irrelevant to you).

If you already have a Freeview capable TV set but are not getting any channels, then you need to do the inital setup. Or maybe do a full retune automatically. The TV User Manual will tell you how to do any of those processes.
