John Wilde: Please see Freeview intermittent interference | ukfree.tv - independent free digital TV advice .

It is most likely to be internal interference, such as your central heating boiler.

Hi, it's not my boiler as I've turned it off and it makes NO difference plus how would my boiler affect my neighbours who live 200 yds away.

John Wilde: OK, I would check around for a streetlight that comes on and off at the time, this has been the cause of such problems in the past.

Hi Bri, also looked into that. the fact that the problem goes off at around 22.45pm and the street lights are still on at that time also it starts at 16.49pm before any of my street lights come on. i think i need a van to come round and see if they can locate the source that's what I'm hoping the BBC will do a bit like when they look for licence dodgers or pirate radio stations.

John Wilde: Firstly, the concept of a "TV Detector van" was always a red herring. They just a database of addresses without a licence.

If you want someone (and it is the BBC who are reponsible) to do a tests, follow the "BBC Reception Test" link next to your post. This is the official way to report such problems.

Any reputable aerial company will have the correct equipment to help detect a source of interference.

Your times are very specific - I would have a look around for a dodgy street light that is coming on at the time you start having the problem. Or other sources such as security lighting or that belonging to a business.

If the times are exactly the same then this does suggest something on a timer.
