That clearly shows that there is a problem with your aerial system. It could well be in the part that is common to the feeds to you different TV sets, i.e. before any splitter or distribution unit.That is the area yoiu need to examine closely but do be careful if you need to access any external parts.

The fact that it affects some multiplexes but not others and varies shows it is almost certainly oxidation at a connection/joint that is causing the problem. Such faults are very frequency selective and is a well known problem in the trade.

Ypu are too far away from the Sudbury transmitter to get reasonable reception using an indoor aerial. You need to have a connection to your outdoor aerial with a feed into the room where the new TV will be placed. You cannot just 'break into' the existing aerial cables (that would ruin the reception of all the TVs!) but you must use an active splitter, perhaps such as the 3-way amplifier/splitter here - Online TV Splitters, Amps & Diplexers sales

Michelle & Miloslav Dobrota:

For any meaningful assistance we need a FULL post code, not a partial as you have given - that covers a huge area and is not really any help at all.

Exeter is a fairly hilly area and so the exact location is important. Some areas will not be able to get services from Beacon Hill and others may well not get any from Stockand Hill. Just because a transmitter is nearby does not mean you can get good signals from it - expecially if there are hills or buildings in the way.

With a full post code we can probably be a bit more helpful.
