    Do I need an aerial signal booster?

    I just got myself a new TV with Freeview HD and have already connected it to my aerial socket, but signal seems weak and I have to keep on tweaking the cable at my wall socket end in order to get a good reception.

    I was just wondering if a signal booster would solve my problem, or is it some kind of contact problem between the cable and the socket?

    if you have to keep tweaking anything it is not a poor signal but poor connections imo, check them all

    wot he said

    as said above,also signal boosters don't really work on digital signals,they just make a poor signal a stronger poor signal.

    Great thanks for the replies, thought it'll most likely be the contacts too.

    i have a signal booster i can honestly say my hanger done a better job

    I bought a signal booster for the downstairs TV. Freeview just wouldn't work without it, yet works perfectly on a portable aerial on the upstairs TV.

    So for us, booster was brilliant.
