All HD channels seem to disappear, or transmit intermittently, each Friday, between around 1900 and 2200 hrs. Normally we are getting 100% strength, 30-40% quality. Exception was last week when Friday was ok, but the dropout was, instead, on the saturday. Have only recently upgraded from crt tv to flatscreen, so have no long record of events, but it seems an odd occurrence and just wondered if there was a logical explanation.
Aerial is external, half way up gable-end with clear view to horizon and checked pointing in direction of transmitter, and reception is on a humax hdr pvr.

Location AB41 7NR, just north of Tarves. If it's single channel interference I'm puzzled as to why it only (seems to be) on a Friday?

Geoff: My apologies for the delay in responding. (I was expecting an email notification of a response).

I can't believe it, I got them transposed! Quality should be the higher figure, strength lower. Sd figures for quality are generally 10-20% higher.

It's no longer just on a Friday, but is proving more intermittent as we've discovered since setting up the flat screen. We very rarely watch live, predominantly programs recorded.
