K ANDREWS: Taking it that you are using the Aberfoyle relay, have you checked with anyone local to see if they are experiencing the same problem?
Should they not be, then is your aerial going directly to your TV or is it through an amplifier in the loft or wherever? and if so are you sure that the power supply to it isn't connected in any way with another device that's on a timer, like connected with central heating or hot water.
