    Stud finder recommendations

    My old stud finder has given up the ghost, it was a cheap and cheerful no brand make but did the job I needed it for - finding studs & joists. Has anyone got recommendations for a replacement? Had a play with an expensive Bosch one the kitchen fitter had and found it horrible to use.

    T.v point testing?

    Just wondering whether there is a plug in tool to test the signal of t.v points? Something similar to sky signal finder but to plug into a standard point? Recently been installing a lot of points and the thought of lugging a customers t.v all around a house/block of flats seem ridiculous. Thanks.
