Ok got a new TV for the bedroom with Freeview. Have Sky downstairs but don't want to rip up carpets to connect the box to the new TV for Sky upstairs. So I plugged the normal TV aerial into the new TV and...result. It worked fine and got most of the freeview channels with a decent signal.
Now the original TV aerial cable isn't long enough to attach to TV where we want it ie on the wall. So I got an extra piece of cable (male connectors on both ends), a connecting piece (female both ends) and plugged into aerial-TV. Everything baring BBC is now shite I took TV off the wall and tried again with the original cable and it was fine again.
So what to do
1. Is it the cable/connectors and should I get another one?
2. Should I get a booster box like this and try it?

3. Somat else?
Bloke in Maplins suggest a new digital TV aerial but I don't really want to do that, as that adds a fair bit more expense and the bedroom TV is normally only used by the Mrs in the morning when going to work and the odd Sun morning lie in. He also suggested Free Sat and connecting to my Sky dish, but again I'd rather not start shelling out if I don't need to.
Can anyone help?
