RH16 3RX - Roof Aerial - Heathfield Transmitter.
Have been getting a lot of pixelation and blocking on all TV channels on multiplex D3+4.
Started before Xmas, improved, but now back again. Is this still atmospherics, or is it more sinister?

Further to my post above, I have had an aerial installer examine the problem. He has decided that it is 4G interference and, because I am in a poor reception area and have signal booster, an inline 4G filter is no good and a masthead 4G filter was required.
Reception much improved as a result.

jb38: As well as being in poor TV reception area, from aerial height I am in line of sight of a Vodafone 4G transmitter (there was great objection to the transmitter being erected when 3G was the next big thing) and which is only about 200 metres away as the crow flies. Aerial fitter says that the start of me having trouble coincided with the start of 4G from that transmitter.

You are correct in that my aerial points to Heathfield and so Vodafone's 4G signal is at right angles.
I am not aware of neighbours' problems generally (a lot are on Sky by the looks of it), apart from that a new neighbour collared my aerial engineer whilst he was here because he had poor reception too. He needed a 4G filter too, so my aerial engineer told me.
However, my immediate next door neighbour was having trouble with all BBC at the same time that I was having problems with C49 but has not had anything fitted and has not mentioned it since.
My situation is not absolutely perfect yet; I have had several bouts of freezing and blocking on C41 now, and everything on this was "not tuned" one evening this week.
I don't know if this is relevant, but my TV is a Sony with an early Freeview (2K?) tuner built in.

Heathfield (East Sussex, England) transmitter

New full HD TV. Really annoyed to find that only restricted number of HD channels being transmitted from Heathfield, especially by lack of BBC4HD. Is this area of the country so insignificant!
Crystal Palace not an option for me.
SD TV looks poor on HD TV.

Although it is not the ideal scenario, there's also the BBC iPlayer option for BBC4 HD. Fortunately this seems to work well for me on my Smart TV. Also, programming made in HD but transmitted in SD from Heathfield is much better than SD programming.

We seem to be heading towards internet TV.
