Thanks all especially jb38, will have to have a word with my new neighbors and see if they have anything on the other side of the wall. Just one more question (sorry) is it normally fir this type of interference only to effect certain programs, in my case all the ones on channel 60. Others are not affected at all.

again many thanks

Hi again,
will try the neighbors first, but could be tetra then as the interference only affects the channels 60 programmes then?

lets hope its the neighbors!

If it was a break in the coax would i not be getting the interference on all the channels? I am only experiencing issues off channel 60 mux. No other channels are an issue not one.
really find this frequency stuff confusing, thanks for all the help.

Right, neighbors are yet to get back to me on anything the other side of the wall. I have borrowed a SLX dvb-t signal meter, lights up 80 top figure on the device, after the splitter 60 at socket down stairs. 50 at back of tv, still the same issue with everything on channel 60 having intermittent blocky picture and sound clipping, not all the time just hiccups at random times but can be every 20 seconds or wait 2-3 mins and starts again.

again thanks for the help all.

Well hi all again, my neighbors still have not got back to me so tried a borrowed set top box and placed it on top of my hard drive recorder and not a blip all night, could this still mean its interference on the Sony tv or is the tuner on the blink?
again any advice would be appreciated.
Regards
Rob

Well update neighbors do have a tv and a phone and base station next to the wall, however they have said they cannot move the base as the wires for it are now under there new floor so looks like i am stuck with this issue if this is the issue. They have stated they can remove the phone from the base and move it bit i don't think that will help if it is this interference I am seeing as when the phone talks with the base it will come back.
maybe i will have to buy a freeview box and keep it low like the one i borrowed, or is there any easy way of shielding the the coax and the back of the tv, i would have thought they should already be shielded anyway for these kinds of issues, the tv is Sony so i would expect a high standard of shielding.

cheers again for any advice you can give.

regards

Rob

Jb38, thanks again for your help on this matter, i have borrowed a freeview hd box an alba stb300hd, the one which says do not buy. However i have plugged in the hdml and my Ariel lead at a lower level on top of my dvd recorder.
now i have all the channels and all are working fine, when i tried my Sony dvd as a set top box as it has one inbuilt it suggested a very low signal and only picked up 5 stations.
Very puzzling, and the alba stb seems to suggest the signal is 100 % and the quality is 10 on some channels and 40 on others, however the picture seems fine to me and if anything better than the Sony.
little worried if a buy one to replace the borrowed the problem will return.
regards Rob

Yep thought the same jb, picture seems ok however at the moment, will try it out tomorrow on another ariel / tv. Not sure the figure can be right, 100% signal and 10 % quality would have glitching all over the place.
