Whilst that is true, about no "shielding" most electrical interference actually travels up the cable to the affected equipment, there isn't that much "radiation" from most cables. There will be some, but because most cables have the L & N in them, they are "balanced" because the current going down the neutral is the same as the current coming up the live, so cancelling each other out from a radiation point of view. The recommendation is to try and not have other "signal" cables running parallel to mains cable and ideally more than 6 inches away from them.

Personally I don't think your issues are "electrical" interference as such. It does seem to be a problem that seems twofold, one to do with mobile interference from stuff that is operating in the 800MHz band (ie. above Channel 60). I think the other part of the problem is just simply signal overload - too much signal (whether it be received DTV signal or mobile is difficult to be sure), but the question as to why this happened as a result of the re-wire remains unsolved at present.

A thought did occur to me a while back, but I didn't want to complicate the picture at the time. You said your aerial is mounted on a pole which is wall mounted. When they re-wired, did they by any chance fix an earth bonding wire to the base of the pole?

Gong back to the DTV your are picking up, it's not the UHF channels that I query, it's the name given to them ie. downstairs you say eg. you have coms 4 uhf ch36 & coms 5 uhf ch33 when they are the other way about - ch33 is com4 and ch36 is com5.
Also coms 6/7 uhf ch48 and coms 8 uhf ch 39 when com6 is ch48, com7 is ch55, com8 is ch56 and ch.39 is a Local mux.

Just to be crystal clear, when I talk about too much signal, I'm talking about what is getting to the set(s), NOT what is being picked up at the aerial.

Thank you for your input . If that is not the problem, but as u have said still a mystery

There is no earth bonding to aerial pole.

In regards to frequencies listed it is listed as they are if I have made a mistake then that I apologize for, but it's how my TVs list them as in the order of coms etc.
