    Does anyone know what might cause faint diagonal interference lines on my TV screen when it is connected to a satellite receiver.

    I have a Philips 36" Widescreen CRT, Denon 3300 AV Amp, Sony 905 DVD player, Humax satellite receiver, with video switching done through the amp.

    The lines also appear on screen when I have the amp switched to DVD. If I disconnect the coax cable from the rear of the satellite receiver, the lies disappear.

    This narrows it down to a problem with the cabling between the satellite dish and the receiver.

    I have tried using different coax cable (both shielded), S-video and component video, all to no avail.

    can anyone help?

    cheers

    Joe

    Seems likely that you've set your satellite receiver UHF output to a channel which is on top of or too close to a TV channel. It's important to set it to an unused channel in its range 21 - 69 and one which does not intermodulate with a TV broadcast channel.

    The technicalities are a little involved to discuss here, although not too hard to understand. I got full information by downloading the eBook "piping TV Around the House".

    Thanks Fman,

    Got the satellite guys coming round tomorrow - will ask them to check the UHF output as you recommended.

    cheers
