We had a new tv, new aerial and new booster installed in early 2014. Reception was fine until September but since then there is hardly a channel that is watchable - black screen, 2 seconds programme 10 seconds pixellated screen with 'chirps' - very annoying. Channel info says signal strength 98 - 100 but 'quality' anything from zero to about 28 at best. We have line of sight to Cumbria coast - any suggestions? Aerial on roof. Pc IM8 2LZ

Tried disconnecting booster - bypassed it with aerial. No signal whatsoever. Tried retuning to north west and to isle of man as secondary. Wonder if manx telecom phone exchange tower is causing probs as it it 20 metres from back door! Carol b IM8 2LZ

Have tried everything you suggested. Problem much worse - pixellated recep/drop out on all channels. Aerial man checked conns but reckons that Ulster going fully digital in Sept 2014 has interfered with signal, esp chann 23 28. Also 4G mast outside may be causing probs. Next door on left - no probs. Next door on right retunes every other day! Giving up now! Can't cope with not being able to watch QI and have read 20 books since 1 Jan! Thanks for help.
