Decent Telly
 
We got a Freeview box over Xmas, and I have been desperatley searching for decent stuff to watch on it ever since.

So here's a thread to flag up when good things crop up on telly.

Here's one for starters: ITV3 at 7 tonight: Jeeves and Wooster!

They're repeating Quantum Leap on ITV 3 every evening. For those of us who were fans in the early 90's.
There's a brainiac quiz on BBC4 that we've watched sometimes - lateral thinking, that I'm no good at.

Ah Quantam Leap, fond memories indeed!

Does this mean you get More4? I keep seeing trailers on 4 for things I want to watch but cant because you need a decent aerial on your house to get a settop box and our land-lord is hopeless at sorting such things out!

"Decent Telly" is an oxymoron - apart from CeeBeebies; that's worth the licence fee alone.

Yes, E4 and More4. But my parents have got a similar problem with their aerial and reception now they've got a digital TV.

You might be lucky, digger. We didn't upgrade our (probably) very ancient aerial and still get all the main channels. The box was only around £25 so it's woth a punt - you can always take it back!

our aerial problem is that we don't have one on the house - or rather we do, but it's pointing the wrong direction and doesn't appear to be connected to the plug in the house. We have a set top aerial and signal booster that gets waved around every evening and propped on various boxes, stacks of books, chairs, depending on its fickleness! I don't think that any amount of waving it about will make a set top box worth it at the mo! :-(

Oh dear. That does sound like a pretty poor arrangement! Bad luck!
