So my family recently purchased a Sony 40" FullHD LCD TV with built-in freeview, and when I set it up and turned it on my parents were a little disappointed at the quality, but my attempts at trying to explain that the signal wasn't being broadcasted at fullHD didn't mean much to them. So I really want to get freeview up and running so they can see the awesome picture that freeviewHD can give us.
So I've tried to do some research and get my head around HD, freeview, sky HDi and the best way to setup, but I'm still a little confused. Can someone please fill me in. Here's my questions:
1. We have regular sky right now, but we obviously want to take advantage of our new FullHD TV. What is the best way to go about this?
2. Can I still run freeview and sky at the same time? and what freeview should I be getting? From what I've read, if I want freeviewHD, I just need a UHF aerial. But can I have the sky dish for sky and the aerial for freeview too? or is there a better way to do this? such as running them both from the satellite? but then freeview wouldn't be fullHD right?
3. Is SkyHDi worth getting too?
4. Is freeviewHD running off an aerial tuned through analogue on the TV?
Confusing aye? tell me about it lol. Hope someone can make sense of my little mess. I think in essence I just need help with the best way to setup freeview and sky while making the most of my new FullHD tv.
Please someone help!
