Hi, we live in Sandwich East Kent and pick up Freeview signals from the Dover transmiteer. Up until Sunday everything has been fine for years. The weather was great and no real high pressure issues which sometimes interferes. We did use an SLX2 booster box. But now the signal is very poor, with bit errors and heavy pixilation showing on our Samsung digital TV. My first thought was that the booster box had failed. Replaced it with no difference. My next thought was aerial or coax cabling. Had that all checked by aerial company today - all fine. Aerial is about 20 years old but has been working fine. Checked at800 re any new 4G interference - they came back straight away and said no problems/tests in our area. I checked the Dover transmitter online for faults and as yet nothing showing. I tried a good internal aerial and that gave almost an identical result. So it must be signal. Something is interfering with it. Any suggestions please?

Thanks - yes it was the TV in the end. I have attached a new Freeview box with HD and SMART connections - fantastic! Job done!
