During the last month we have had intermittent interference on the itv channels on all of our digital televisions, including one with a bt box. We have an arial on the roof and a booster in the loft. We have rescanned but this has made no difference. The picture seems to be worse in the evening. ITV can be clear for hours then suddenly start breaking up. Is this caused by a problem with the local transmitter?
