Sudden weak RF signal output from Sky HD box (Amstrad). The Sky signal is fine and so is the Freeview signal but we have extended the Sky output to other rooms using the RF output. It has benn fine for a number of years but suddenly the RF output is poor. We have had 4G recently turned on but as our Freeveiw is fine we're mystified. I have tried a 4G filter on the RF input on the Sky box with which has given a tiny improvement on one (closest) of the four addition TVs the RF output feeds. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you MikeP & JB38 for your responses. My location is Crawley Down, (nr East Grinstead) West Sussex. However, I (we) cannot get to the settings for the RF channel output. It's an Amstarad (HD) model number R010.070.91.00P / version 4F3005. Also, disconnecting the RF aerial as suggested solves the problem! So, hopefully all we need do is to change the RF output channel - so help there please. Many thanks to both of you.

Update - RF output channel is 35. Have put free 4G filter in loft on aerial input side of masthead amp. It has improved things considerably so we're on the right track but the picture is still down in quality a fair bit. Is there a different amplifier for the loft/masthead? Again, many thanks for your help folks.

I meant different filter needed for the loft/masthead amp? Also don't understand why the interference if we'll away from the 60 & above RF channels.

These Podcast summaries are dreadful, having to continuously mentally correct sentences all the time is simply too much effort. "Clipped" ? - forget 'em!
