Question about Televison & Video
The freezing of the picture denotes a loss of signal on a digital (Having a ATSC tuner) TV. If your TV is not digital (Having a ATSC tuner) then it is the device that you have connected to the TV (Cable Set-top Box, DTV Tuner, etc). In the likelihood that it is your TV I would suggest getting a better antenna first if that does not fix the problem you may have a tuner problem. However lets not look at it that way first. What we need to do is to determine if it is the TV of whatever you have connected to the TV.
First unhook the connection you have from the cable to your F connector of the TV (you should see snow or a blank screen) connect a antenna to the F connector of the TV, do you see a snowy picture or a clear sharp picture (snowy= NTSC tuner, clear-sharp= ATSC tuner). If the tuner is NTSC then check you cable device and the connection between your TV and the device and the cabling between the device and the wall. If the Tuner is ATSC then you will have to check all of your connections, and finally if the tuner is bad it has to be replaced by a qualified Tv repair shop.
I hope this helps,
