I have just bought tv with DVB-T/C tuner on it and wondered if the C is the sane as S?

I have dish on my roof but no aeriel so tried converting f plug on dish wire to coaxial and plugging in but it doesn't find any channels. Should I buy rooftop aeriel and connect to sane wire on roof?

Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks heaps.

No, C is not the same as S; if it was then there wouldn't be two different letters :)

Freeview provides better picture quality when using T so you'd do best to install an aerial if you're in the coverage area. If that's not practical then you'll need an S tuner.

Wikipaedia

DVB-C stands for "Digital Video Broadcasting - Cable" and it is the DVB European consortium standard for the broadcast transmission of digital television over cable. This system transmits an MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 family digital audio/digital video stream, using a QAM modulation with channel coding. The standard was first published by the ETSI in 1994, and subsequently became the most widely used transmission system for digital cable television in Europe. It is deployed worldwide in systems ranging from the larger cable television networks (CATV) down to smaller satellite master antenna TV (SMATV) systems.

You need a UHF antenna. Your TV won't work with a dish as it doesn't have a satellite tuner. The T/C means it has a Terrestrial Freeview and Cable tuners.
