Home Forums General Discussion TV reception Re: Re: TV reception


Hi Simon

We've had the same problem for several days with our freeview – the BBC channels are fine, but ITV and the other commercial channels are hopeless. I found a website forum which explained (in terms I could barely understand) that ITV channels use a more compressed form of transmission, and when the screen is very active eg sport, it can cause the breakup of the picture on the channel showing sport, and also have a knock on effect on the other commercial channels. No great ideas to get over the problem except a better loft aerial – not practical for us on the ground floor.
has anyone tried a booster between the TV set and the wall socket?
