Hi - I have just got a freeview tv and have moved into a house which had sky in it. There appear to be 2 aerial leads for the sky but they don't fit the tv. The ladlord said there is a normal aerial on the roof but won't pay for it to be sorted out and assumed I would just get sky like the last tenant.

Can anyone tell me how to make the aerial fit my tv without getting an engineer out??

Many thanks in advance. Laughing

The two cables are probably from a Sky satellite dish. These can't be used with a Freeview|HD TV as it's terrestrial (uses a TV aerial) and not via satellite.

Your best option is probably to get somebody in to look at the existing aerial.

Sbiddle is right, but in the interim, can you see a TV aerial (not sky satellite dish) on the roof?  What does it look like?  Long and skinny, or big meter long type bits sticking up and down from it?

Hi - I have now found an aerial in the bedroom and there appears to be lines under the house so it will just be a case of rigging them up to the lounge I reckon. Think I may need to get a man in! Thanks for the help though guys.

Oh and didn't realise I was yelling in the title but now know that capitals mean shouting...we live and learn eh John?
