We live by Troon Marina, so just outwith the published coverage area of the Troon relay transmitter. Freeview reception is normally fine, however, but, over the past few days of wild weather, pixelation has been very severe in the evening only - no problem at all during the day! The aerial's in the loft of a small block of flats with a distribution amplifier and internal cabling, so direct weather impact seems unlikely. All flats are similarly affected. Is a wet roof in a marginal signal area a sufficient explanation? Thanks!

Thanks, Dave - sounds like a feasible suggestion, although I'm certainly not an expert either! The signal strength isn't bad, but the 'quality' (error rate) is poor, which may point to interference. Unfortunately, Dundonald Hill prevents us receiving a direct signal from the Darvel transmitter, at least with the loft aerial, and a roof aerial is prohibited by our Deed of Conditions. We do, however, have a communal satellite dish installed in the block, so we've bitten the bullet and bought a FreeSat box!
