Is Dave actually free now? I haven't been away (when I use my TV card)
for a while and it used to be on a separate multiplex to Freeview.

As for Virgin 1 - I'll be a lot happier when they start screening STTNG,
I never really cared for DS9, not until the Dominion appears.


As for the antenna, you may need to buy one, there's a good FAQ here:
