Digital TV with indoor aerial

Does anyone in Forest Hill (especially along Devonshire Road) use an internal TV aerial to connect to a Freeview digital set-top box? I don't have a roof aerial and I'm not sure whether the signal is strong enough in this area to get away with connecting a Freeview box to an aerial perched on top of my telly.

I have a freeview box with an internal aerial and I am in the Perry Vale area. It works, but I do need to wedge the aerial between central heating pipes to get a good reception (analogue reception requires the same).

I live in the Perry Vale area too and we've never had an external aeriel. I've got an old OnDigital box and it works fine with an indoor aerial, although we are in direct sight of the Crystal Palace transmitter so I don't know if that makes a difference.

We live up the hill from Devonshire road, and only use an internal arial for the freeview box, and get a perfect picture, we are a bit higher than devonshire but maybe it makes no difference. If you get a good picture on normal TV- then I guess it should be good enough for a freeview box - not sure

we have live on Dev Rd and have a freeview box with internal aerial. The Tv is only a wee one but the reception is fine. Generally, if you can get channel 5 OK on analog TV you should be fine to get freeview.
