Hi,

I live in Essex, my postcode is SS7 5UY. Since just before Christmas around 2 months ago my reception has greatly deteriorated. Not had any problems for the last 10 years but now can not get a solid picture for more than a minute on any channel, even the radio is near impossible to tolerate for too long due to the signal dropping out continually.

I have bought a signal booster but it has not made that much difference.

Any idea as to what has happend?

Thanks

Jason Watkins: You're predicted to get good reception from Crystal Palace, which has not undergone any recent changes. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV and along the route of the cable from the TV, as far as you can safely access back towards the aerial? It's highly likely that you're suffering from some sort of fault in your aerial system or possibly local electrical interference.
