From about 4pm to about 1am my signal degenerates to the point that all my channels are impossible to watch due to serious pixelation. If i go on analogue tv then there seems to be alot of static interference. I have replaced the areial and put a booster in.
This problem has been occuring since 8th December, even though the signal has been pretty weak since i switched over
I would appreciate any advice
As mentioned in that thread, you may not find one that is visibly showing a problem, it might just be creating electrical noise. I had just this problem a few years ago, and the light which was responsible was bright and steady. I tracked it down with a radio.
Edit: When they came round after I had identified the culprit and reported it, they took the fuse out of the bottom for a while to confirm it was the source and then changed the whole top of the column (what they called "the lantern").
If the interference stops at 01:00: that will only happen if the streetlights have timer (or similar) controls and go off at night, rather than operate from dusk to dawn. (My local council has recently installed such devices to save electricity, some lamps dim, some switch off and others remain on depending on precise location and a 'risk' assessment).
Of course another likely culprit is a central heating system with faulty thermostats. - or any other (faulty) electrical device that is switched on and off at those times. Check with your neighbours to see if and how they are affected. A bit of cooperation will allow you to eliminate all items in your own homes as the potential source (or even discover which home is the culprit).
