No complaints what so ever.Brand new Tv with Freeview HD .Works perfectly with aerial lead unplugged,in fact picture occasionally breaks up if connected.This I think is due to closeness of Looe transmitter (200 Yards).
So buying an aerial here a waste of money?

Tony Hillier: If you can get all the public service channels from the Looe transmitter with no interruptions as you are located that close, then probably not. It is unlikely you will be able to use a full service transmitter, but I can't say without the full postcode.
