Hi, my freeview digibox has taken to sometimes scrambling/pixellating channels or sometimes says "no signal" whatsoever, this is only a recent problem in the last week or so, and i have done all of the recommended methods of solving it, like turning off and on, unplugging completely, re-tuning, taking aerial plugs etc in and out. These methods sometimes help sometimes do not, and if they do it does the same again when it is next on, the next day or whenever, initially it was only BBC that it was doing this on, all the other channels were perfectly ok, but on sunday, sometimes it was the BBC channels and sometimes it was the ITV and channel 4 channels as well!! Getting very tiresome now, do the think the digibox needs replacing? Any help please

Hi mark, i am in the DA10 area (swanscombe), as i say it is normally ok, it only seems to be for about the last week. And some days its a lot of messing around (as per my previous msg), like over the weekend and some days its absolutely fine!

So if it is this inversion effect that you mentioned and probably not my box, i guess there is nothing that can be done then? right?

Also, after the digital swtichover date, is the freeview signal likely to be stronger? I hope so, as we wont have the analogue option to fall back on then will we?
