Is channel 973 and 978 OK ?

When tuned to say 108 what signal strength and quality does diagnostics say you have ?

Retuned them all tonight Graham, 80-90% all good quality. worst ones have been 973/108/200 all BBC HD ones, at same time 300 Film4 has generally been unusable also. Will report back.

BTW we must be the only 2 people on the forum with Pylons in our Avatars!

Ex National grid planning engineer, they are standard towers carrying 400Kv quad conductor bundle conductors (L2 if i remember correctly, though I retired in 2000). Strictly speaking a pylon is a single guyed structure without legs, without the guys it would fall down. However the term is now generically accepted.

I tried a manual re-tune of the box and this seems to have improved the issue. Still some blocking but a lot less and not as bad as having to bin recordings.
