was your telly an ordinary one (non digital) I had a similar problem the old aerial worked fine with the old analogue tv but wouldn't pick up the digital signal for the freeview card, ring a local aerial installer and ask?

I had a new free view bow a few weeks ago. When I tuned it in the BBC channels where at the front and the ITV,Channel 4 and 5 where at the back right at the back past the radio channels took 2 days to find them :D . You could do with a booster for the arial I use one.

Get a bigger aerial. I have the same problem here. BBC is great but I lose itv chan4 and chan5 when the weather gets crappy. I need a bigger better digital aerial too.
