So we have 3 TV's in the house and I have varying results with quality of reception...we are in a sub ideal location for reception from the mast but it does work and has done fine for ages. We have since had to replace one of our freeview boxes and we now have an issue with reception chopping in/out on that box
1 Panasonic 50" TV; seems fine, no issues
1 Samsung 32" TV; seems fine, no issues
1 Samsung 40" TV; built in receiver is so crap it hardly gets anything, so we have a DishTV T1020 box plugged into it, reception is okay (chops in/out probably 30% of the time on most channels)
We had someone come around and check the signals to the end of the cable and all is fine (within acceptable tolerances), so he is pointing the finger at the Freeview Box plugged into the TV. Is it likely that the receiver in the T1020 is just lower quality (and hence the lower price point) than the other 2, or is it worthwhile chasing this up with DishTV....undecided...
