    Anyone know where I can get a good one from? The one in my room is broken and I got it with a very old TV. All other TVs in my house use the one on the roof so I've never had to buy an aerial before.
    The best I could find was this one:

    But I dont want something that looks too gay or has a weird shape.

    Could someone help me out here?

    I would reccomend you buy an aerial and also an amplifier to get a better picture.

    Not too sue about what aerial you should get, I'll have a look around, say £5 budget?

    I'd probably pay up to £10 to most. But it would need to be a decent one that I can leave anywhere, not like my current one that needs a human stand to hold it up in the right place.

    Look on the internet for a booster/amplifier thing. They sell them in Argos, but eBay will be cheaper. I don't actually have one as I have a roof/loft antenna.

    Depends how bad/good your current image is. How much are they on eBay, if it wont work your not going to lose much money.

    Hello anyone who can help, I have had my TV for about 2 or 3 years, anyhow, had always just run my Sky through it and never tuned it in. Anyhow today I finally tuned it in, and it doesnt pick up ITV or CH4, and thus it goes BBC1, BBC2, FIVE etc

    With the DVB, you cant seem to manual tune any channels in, does anyone have any clue why it isnt picking up those channels? I have an aerial booster already on it. Have retuned it 3 times and it still wont pick up anymore channels.

    It's a Panasonic 32" LCD.

    Thanks for anyone who can help!
