What’s the best way to track down a reception problem?
As of approximately four to six weeks ago I have started to have reception problems where my T1000 is getting pixelated due to reception problems. Channel 4 is worse than BBC. My signal strength is around 55%, which is no change. My signal quality is 100% but when I get pixelation you can see (via the YouView settings) the quality drop down to 50% for a split second and then back up to 100% again.
What I want to know is how to go about figuring out what is causing the problem in a logical way. I’m aware it could be any number of problems: a faulty YV box or a botched update, a problem with my antenna cable, a problem with my antenna, interference from an external source or a problem with the transmitter. I don’t want to spend unnecessary money or time chasing my tail.
Some extra information that might help-
My transmitter is Crystal Palace. Shortly after the interference began I found a website that told me some transmitter work was underway which could result in signal problems, but I can’t remember which site to go back and check to see if it’s finished.
We also had a lot of wind around that time, athough there is no visual change with my external antenna (it’s just outside our living room window I can hang out and check it).
