B.BUSSETTI: It could be.

How does he view the programme on the satellite box; what connection/lead does he use?

B.BUSSETTI: Scart connection should be used over that of analogue RF out as it provides better quality picture and stereo sound.

In such circumstances the RF out should be set to off, if that is an option.

Hi, we have had imtermittent problems with the TV signal in Painswick near Stroud for months now. We have tried re tuning many times and have fitted signal boosters but we are still having loss of picture, pixelated screens, sound out of step with picture & not sure what to do next.

We have had breaks in our freeview signal since yesterday late afternoon - still happening this morning. All channels are affected. Aerial is on the roof. Have checked and it seems there are no problems on Mendip transmitter, which I believe we receive our signal from.
