Freeview intermittent interference | Freeview Interference

Ashby-de-la-zouch

How can I prevent on screen interference (freezing/pixilation, even on recordings on HDD) from passing mopeds/scooters etc? Other modes of transport such as cars, vans, buses or even motorbikes don't seem to cause a problem.
I suspect it is linked to inefficient suppression of electrical signals which leak from the ignition system of the bikes. If that is the cause, is the only solution to ask for the lads to get their bike suppressors checked out and adjusted?
Or will the problem disappear when the Freeview digital signal is boosted at switchover in September in our area (Ashby de la Zouch, Leics)?

Sutton Coldfield (Birmingham, England) Full Freeview transmitte

Ashby-de-la-zouch

I live in Ashby de la Zouch LE65 post code and prefer East Midlands Today local news as it is more relevant than the local news from the Sutton Coldfield transmitter, ie:- mainly news from the West Midlands inc Birmingham.
Will we have the option of continuing to receive East Midlands Today from switchover in September, even though apparently we come under the Sutton Coldfield transmitter area? Do we to choose between receiving local news from an area that we don't live in & accept that the signal will be weaker, or choose the stronger signal strength but irrelevant local news option? If that is the case, what happened to free choice?!

When will Freeview HD channels be available in the East Midlands, specifically for postcode LE65 1LY ?
Will the quality of the picture be better if the ariel is pointed towards the Sutton Coldfield transmitter rather than Waltham?
Will I need an HDMI cable and if so what type and how do I fit it and where?
We suffer from interference from motor scooters. Is it true that a larger ariel will cure the problem and if so have you any advice?
