Thanks again.
All ordered.
I'll let you know how I get on.

Cheers, Gilbert

Well, I seem to have solved the problem.
I got my new aerial, and I was still having the same problem with MUX 22
- Signal Strength stays at 10, but Signal Quality dips to 0 and picture drops out, but Bit Error Rate stays at 0 the whole time.
Since I was operating in a particularly inhospitable part of the loft, i decided to move the aerial to somewhere more accessible, and "presto", problem solved.
Then, I realised that, previously, the aerial was just a few inches away from my solar panels on the other side of the roof tiles.
I hadn't give solar panels a thought before, but I assume they must have been the cause of my problems.

Once again, many thanks for all the help and advice you have provided. :-)

Yes, I completely understand but, since they aren't visible from inside, I never gave them a thought but when moving the aerial fixed the problem and I started to wonder why, i suddenly realised they had been the obvious culprit
