What do I do with the key?
And any hint on how to arrange the tree ornaments and curio items?

The key:
Spoiler: ShowHide
You can hang it from a hook.


I haven't worked out how to order the ornaments/curios though. I've tried ROYGBIV, complementary colours, symmetry...

EDIT: OK, I figured that out that as well:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Turns out order isn't that important, so don't bother looking for changes as you switch items around. Just keep it balanced!

Some advice about using the interface (No real puzzle SPOILERS) :
Spoiler: ShowHide
Keep a close watch on the TV screen while moving/placing items. If you have done something right you might notice the reception has improved slightly with each step. A good way to practice looking for these improvements would be fooling around with the TV antenna for a while.

Right click drops objects but it also uses them on each other if they are able to be combined and are in the appropriate positions/close enough to each other etc...I tried to be as generous as possible with the size of the hotspots for this kind of actions but please let me know if anything was too fiddly to get working...

The books and the curio-shelves (the ones with the lips,the purple tentacle, the euro, the Gumby head, the Information sign, and the Kilroy) can be a bit tricky, especially the shelves. Click on the area between two items to swap their positions and not on the actual items for best results.
