6pm everynight three muxs suffer from TVI
i have a customer who has two tvs in there house and everynight at 6pm all the channels on muxs 22 25 28 and 30 break up for about 25 mins any channels on mux 53 and 60 play fine. this is happening in skegness lincolnshire and we are tuned to belmont.
what i have allready done i have moved the aerial to outside and i am using a log pierodic double screened cable and a tetra filter i have also run cable direct from the aerial straight to both sets and still no change.
this has been happening now for at least 4 months the property is a detatched bungalow with no other property near by, there is no mobile phone masts or radio ham operators near by 2 of the nearest houses are not suffering any freeview problems,
they do have central heating in the property that switchs on at 5pm everyday no work has been done on this system or the water.
if anyone could suggest any thing i would appreciate it

skeggyhornet: If a time factor of an exact nature is genuinely involved with this problem and its not just the case that the timing of the interference is purely coincidental, then as its already been verified that the problem seems to be confined to the property itself by the fact of the neighbours have not reported anything amiss, then one of the simplest tests for detecting interference from within a property in cases where something associated with the mains supply is suspected as being the cause is by using a small portable radio of the type that is capable of LW reception.

You simply tune the radio to anywhere close to BBC radio 4 LW (but not actually on it) then turn up the volume control until background noise is heard, you then place the radio in a position close to the electrical wiring used by central heating system, because if the source of the interference is associated with anything connected with the central heating system then the interference will be revealed by loud bursts of audio on the radio, the exact problem area being found by manually moving the radio around near to the boiler or electric water valves associated with, such as externally positioned diverter valves etc.

An FM radio tuned so as NOT to be on a station can also be used for this test, any interference showing up as intermittent bursts of noise over the normal background hiss of the radio, provided that its not the type with an auto-mute.

By the way, if nothing is detected then try placing the radio somewhere thats close to mains input supply to the property, because should there be any interference on the incoming power supply then it will show up on the radio.

Killelay: Can you view (11) Pick TV? because if not then you are not receiving COM5, but apart from that its not possible for anyone to be able to assist on this without having knowledge of your location, this preferably being in the form of a post code or one from nearby as this would then enable details of the transmitter covering your area to be accessed.

Killelay: Further to that said, using a test code for area mentioned in one of your earlier postings for the purpose of being able to access the terrain indicator map between the two locations involved, namely Belmont and the Caravan site reveals that the signal from Belmont is blocked from roughly 5 miles out from the site, this being why DUK's signal predictor only shows the reception of the commercial channels as being variable hence the reason for your problem, unfortunately this being the type of problem that you cannot really do anything about except by experimenting with the aerial being mounted in slightly different positions, an action thats very limited when residing in a caravan.

Jb30 thanks for the info, we had problems on a few channels last Wednesday when we came from home.
It seems intermittent loss, I was thinking it was high pressure weather fronts ?
Thanks again Dave K

I live just north of scunthorpe and over the last three days I can't get any channels on one of my TVs. The other two are working OK.
When I run the install channels programme, no channels are detected. This happened suddenly. Before we could get most channels a part from BBC ones for a period. We have two different aerials in our house. Please can you help?
