Question about Thomson Televison & Video
The t.v. was programmed to run through the standard video unit and we have a separate freeview box inside. As we are in the country we have a satellite dish.

You will need to have an outdoor aerial installed, the signal area you're now living in will not be a strong enough reception for an indoor aerial no matter how good or expensive. You could try the indoor aerial in different positions around the room especially by a window to try & pick up some other channels but the long term this will cause some of the programmes to break up or freeze. An aerial on the roof or in the attic will be your best solution to pick up all the digital channels on freeview.

SOURCE: Hi I have two freeview
The problem you describe is called "Digital Cliff Edge" and it's caused by signal loss. I wont go into the specifics of that at the moment as it's not going to help solve your problem. I you want more information about DCE, try an internet search.
As you are using the same aerial and booster/splitter for both TVs, you are correct in ruling these out as the cause of the problem. The fault is probably in the co-ax cables or connections but you might have a faulty freeview box. Please run through the following checks to establish the source of the fault.
1. Swap your Freeview Boxes - you shouldn't need to re-scan/tune as they are running off the same aerial..
If the Freeview box from the TV that is working correctly freezes and stutters on the other TV, the fault is probably in the cables or cable connections. Next, try the "faulty" Freeview box on the TV that is working correctly. If you get stuttering sound and freezing/pixellation you probably have a faulty Freeview box. DO NOT SWAP ANY CABLES FOR THIS TEST.
If the problem is the same after swapping the freeview boxes:
2. Swap any non-fixed cables, e.g the co-axial "fly-leads" and scart cables - one at a time. See if the fault "moves" with the swapped cables. "Fly leads" are the short co-ax cables that link the Freeview box to the TV or the TV to a wall mounted aerial socket. If the fault "moves" with the swapped cable, you have identified the source of the fault and should either repair or replace this cable.
Try these tests first and post back with the results. If you haven't identified the source of the fault, I will try to assist you further.

SOURCE: how do you tune in
You require a satelite decoder/receiver for your dish and an aerial for your TV.
The choice is yours. Plug a satelite receiver, for freesat, into the A/V input on the TV or have an aerial installed for freeview.

SOURCE: There is no signal but
It's either a bad antenna cable (most likely), or the F-connector socket is broken or has come un-soldered inside the se (possible)t. First, try exchanging your antenna cable with a new one. They're inexpensive and tend to fail over time anyway. If that doesn't solve the problem, a technician will be needed to repair or replace the F-connector (the screw-on connecter where the antenna connection screws in on the back of the set). If you're good with a soldering pen and have a nearby electronics store where you can buy a new F-connector socket, you may be able to do it yourself, as it's a very simple repair. If you do not have the skill to make the repair, don't fear, it shouldn't be very costly to accomplish.
