k chambers: I suspect that you might either have a fault with your TV/ electrical system, or you've set a timer on the TV/set top box to switch off every 30min. Freeview does not flash off every 30min - not for me, anyway.

What is technically known as 'ghosting' cannot happen with the reception of digital signals, it works differently.

But what you describe sounds like a fault in the TV set itself, especially as it does not appear on other sets.

I suggest you have the TV set affected checked by a local expert with that make.

Jb38:

Sorry for the slow reply. There was a small aerial on the side of the property, and I got permission from the tenants upstairs to use it.

I put the cable out the window and connected it up. When I did, I had a great signal and channel 21 worked fine.

Thanks for helping in diagnosing. I will be booking an aerial guy to take it through the wall using weather proof connections.
