Please check all the aerial connection from the back of the TV up to the aerial. There could be corrosion/oxidation at the connections and removing the plugs from the sockets and then refitting them usually cures that problem. Also inspect for any damage to the cables or signs of water getting inside the cables.

As your neighbour is not suffering the problem it is highly unlikely to be timed interference - unless the problem occurs at regular times and you have electrical devices controlled by timers. In which case the source will be in your house, so needs to be investigated properly.

MikeP: hi Mike,
Aerials and connections all been checked by a friend who has an aerial business - no problems or damage found.
Most of our neighbours have dishes, we don't. One neighbour who doesn't have a dish but is in a house doesn't have problems (we live in a bungalow - and have done so for 30 years).
This morning no bbc, all other channels ok on all tv's then 1 hour later bbc ok but ytv gone off.
Been in touch with bbc again and awaiting response.

Elaine: If everything else has been checked, then interference is the most likely problem. Note the times the problems arise - and then think what could be operating at that time - a thermostat timer, etc.

Hi Elaine. Just a thought, but do you have any large trees in the sight of your aerial because this can cause problems with signal. I have this issue with my neighbours tree and I can't even have a freesat dish fitted.
