Your British TV has a "Freeview" tuner. Suggest you explore that aspect of it.

That doesn't sound right. Freeview wasn't launched in HD in the UK until 2009. It is not very likely that the internal tuner of your TV supports anything but Freeview in SD.

Apart from reception problems, it is also possible the electronics of the internal tuner in your TV have died.

Have you thought of buying a Freeview HD+ receiver/PVR unit and an HDMI cable?

Did the person who installed the aerial not try it with the TV?

Since this is a U.S. based forum we're not going to be of much help with a British TV.

However, there is an excellent U.K. based LCD forum (linked below) - surely someone there will be able to help you out:
