Thanks for the replies.
It's a block of flats with a communal aerial. Haven't been able to speak to any neighbours yet.
I have tried moving the offending tv into another house in same street and it's working fine there. Have also tried another tv in original location and that works much better but I did see one pixelation issue in 10 mins.
It sounds like there is a general reception issue in the area atm though, just a shame the biggest tv seems to handle it worst. do you think a 4g filter or signal booster might help given the above info ?

Just browsing the Internet this afternoon. I am looking for a printed map of the ITV Anglia region, Brian, to display iin my living room, but it would appear that such a thing cannot be purchased Correct me if you know differently!
I don't have any Freeview reception issues currently, thank you!
