    Help with a freeview box please?

    I know nothing about these as I have sky but an elderly neighbour is having problems with hers. She is trying to retune it in but is getting a no signal sign, does this mean that the aerial is no good?

    may be a break in the aerial wire? does it look ok.. is it pushed into the aerial in socket of the freeview box all the way?

    Tried two different aerial leads and yes it is in the socket correctly. Tried two different freeview boxes but same problem with both. Looking online would it be anything to do with the big retune last year as I dont know how long there has been a problem

    getting 'no signal' is an aerial fault not a re-tune problem.
    are there any boosters than have been accidently turned off?

    How did you try 2 aerial leads? do you mean from the freeview box to an aerial socket on a wall?

    Yes I mean from the box to the socket. It will probably be the aerial, but her telly is working downstairs but maybe have a split aerial?

    Have a look at the aerial on the roof to see more than one wire, is on going downstairs and one upstairs or is it just one wire into the roofspace?
    if two then you know which one has the problem if downstairs is fine.
