Christie:

We need a full post code so that we can see what the expected reception conditions are like at your location. Pixilation can be caused by either too much or too little signal or by outside intereference. That will also tell us which if the over 1100 transmitters you are using and hence what the current channels used for the multiplexes are.

Please check all your aerial connections and unplug and coaxial plugs/sockets and refit them to remove any corrosion/oxidation from the copntact sufaces.
