Thanks for the reply. Have found cause for some reason the splitter I have on the ariel was not working. Been there for yonks no problems. Soon as removed and fed the one cable direct to the socket the signal quality went from 30% to 80 and then I checked again it was at 100.funny though the splitterjust not doing its job. Maybe it's because of the latest software upgrade. Never mind it's working now just have to new splitter for freeview directly through tv. Which comes
In handy as a reserve if the box crashes or something not that it ever has.
Hi - assuming that you have a YV+ box (with recording facility) you should be able to daisy-chain aerial cables as follows without using a splitter:
Main aerial lead goes into YV input (not the TV!)
YV aerial output goes into TV aerial input
You may need to turn on 'RF Loop Through' in YV 'Device Management' settings if that doesn't work.
If you have the 'starter box' then you won't be able to do this as that box doesn't have an aerial output.
