Peter Gilbert: Presumable you mean Freeview (Freeserve used to be an internet service provider which had nothing to do with TV). There are no reported problems with the Lark Stoke transmitter. Have you checked for any loose or damaged cables or connections behind your TV? Please provide a full postcode so that we cans ee predicted coverage at your location. Do not attempt to retune.

Sorry StevenOnln1, you are correct! Not sure what happened, but had no freeview at all, but without any input from me it came back later in the day. Not seen it before when no channels available. Thanks for your reply. Peter PS I had a freeserve email....so I think it was an auto correct.

I have had interference, brief loss of picture and part picture loss, via my Youview box and Larkstoke transmitter. I am in Warwick and have the problem only at times between 5 and 7 pm. A 4G filter does not make any difference and all the other checks were made. There is a stronger high definition signal received compared to standard definition. The worst is local BBC news after 6 pm.

Mrs S N Ayres:
That looks very likely to be local interference caused by something operated on a timer. Please ask your neighbours who use Freeview whether they get the same problem at the same time. If they do, then you all need to report the problem. If they don't then you need to investigate in your own house what is being controlled by a timer.
Many years ago I had a customer who had similar interference problems between 6 PM and 7 PM. It turned out to be a near neighbour who had their own diathermy machine that they used every day between 6 and 7 PM!
