I have had freeview intermittant interference since September---sometimes unwatchable. Have had two visits from the aerial engineer---all normal things checked out, and he tried a couple of things, but the interference is no better. I'm just trying to live with it now but am an OAP and really appreciate resting and watching tv. I never had any problems before September. I love in north Edinburgh. Advice please?

I am wondering if several people in my area of edinburgh have had reception interference on and off since September last year. I have had aerial engineers out twice (no help), and it doesn't seem to correspond to weather conditions either , nor is it related to other electrical items in my home. There is also nothing wrong with my TV. I have freeview with a built in tuner. My neighbour did say that she had had a little interference from around Sept / Oct but she doesn't have freeview. I am at a loss as to what is causing this intermittent interference. How can one find out if it is due to a new building or whatever, or a local radio ham or what. I never had any problems prior to September and my aerial is relatively new and has nothing wrong with it. All channels are affected at the same time---picture jerks or freezes and likewise the sound, and there is occasional pixellation. Other times it is perfect and can switch from one to the other within a space of a few hours. It was very bad on Christmas day. Any suggestions please?
