I have a problem with channels on PSB3 and com7 Muxes. On my Samsung LE32C580. All channels on these muxes are subject to intermittent interference. All channels on any of the other muxes are O.K. with no interference.

When I look at the signal strength shown on the TV, the channels with problems show a signal strength of 90 but an error rate of 800 to 2000 depending on how bad the problem is. When the problem is not present, the error rate is between 400 and 600.

All other channels show a signal strength of 80 to 100 and an error rate of 0, even when the interference is occurring on the PSB3 and com7 muxes.

We are in Cheltenham GL52 area.

Is this a problem with the transmitter, or my reception system?

Thank you Dave. I don't have an amplifier myself, but as the signal is coming from a communal system, I assume that has some amplification of the signal. I will get hold of an attenuator and see if that resolves the problem.
