Post code BN1 6FG - Fiveways, Brighton.

We are getting Single Frequency Interference for BBCA. The signal strength from Whitehawk on Ch60 is strong but the signal quality fluctuates from 0-10 over seconds. It is unwatchable.

We have a Group c/d aerial which should cover Ch60=786Mhz.

We have a TV with built-in freeview.

I have tried ...
a) buying a variable aerial attenuator to reduce the strength.No improvement.
b) clearing and re-tuning the TV with all the other equipment off (HD recorder, i- player box etc).

Any clues what to do next anyone please.
Might it be interference beyond our control eg from mobile phone transmitters?

Dear Peej
I forgot to say that the picture is actually fine on that Multiplex (the BBC group of programmes) when we watch via our hard disk recorder, ie when the picure is decoded by the recorder before its gets to the screen.

Why is that? ... anyone?

It's a pain to have to switch on the HD recorder to watch the TV.

Thanks Peej
That was the only thing we hadnt tried .. and it worked.
Just moved the WiFi Router (not the modem) about a meter from the TV.

This should be the first thing that anyone else tries if they are having trouble with BBC channels.
