Intermittent interference, pixellated picture, freezing, audio interruption,
occasionally loss of signal message on Emley Moor transmitter here on South edge of York.
Usually during summer days, most noticeable over last week, sometimes
with signal strength indicated as high. Bad during rain.
Noticeable in past years during local Harvest time.
Even worse when my PVR is switched on and the TV antenna is routed via it.
I do not have any other electrical equipment near the TV inclusive of Mobile/Radio.

Have manually retuned, replaced TV antenna and cable.
Have switched off PVR and connected TV antenna direct to TV, still experiencing problems.
There are trees between myself and Emley Moor so have also tried alternative transmitters to the
North, West and South East but I still get interference especially Freeview ch 14, 25, 4, 15
sometimes 1 and 2.

Other people in my village experience TV reception problems and a look at all the TV antennae
show them all pointing at different masts.

I am now considering a FreeSat solution but asking you here if you have any other suggestions.
Could someone be using an illegal radio or have a TV signal booster or is it
4G interference (no mast nearby) or EMI from next door and how can I check or is it just simpler
to go to FreeSat ?
