Chris.SE: having now checked the signal strength and quality I find I get a full 10 on the signal strength and 0 quality , except channel 7 and the other LOX channels where I get 60 to 75 percent, the same I get for LOX normally, but quality is still zero. I tried putting up to 18db attenuation at the set end, and that made no difference apart from the strength was reduced.
This would suggest it is the amplifier not the tv fronted, though the LOX result confuses me as I would have expected if the amplifier was overloaded it would not matter what the received signal strength was from the transmitter.

The people who responded on 'next door' live not to far away, but no immediate neighbours as many of those we know to speak to are on Virgin.

I hopefully have an aerial man coming out tomorrow who no doubt will charge an arm and a leg, but if it is not 700mhz interferance the amplifier must be oscillating or doing something silly.

Chris.SE: sorry meant to come back. Despite my quick check on the power supply for the amplifier which said it was OK, when the aerial company who attended, first one kept rescheduling, looked with a spectrum analyser it was doing something odd. New psu and everything OK.
