55 COM7 will probably be from Waltham off the back of the aerial.So today everything was fine until this evening I started to get BBC 1 HD break up. Out of curiosity i jiggled the wire in the outlet and then everything seemed to pick up. In fact the reception improved. I was getting 90% strength and 100% quality on all channels and even managed to pickup ch55 (i think from a different transmitter as the tv asked me to specify a secondary region) although on ch55 s20 q20.
Connection issues. Heating/cooling = expansion/contraction. Weight of cable and connectors. The connector slowly pushing the plug out due to the conical shape of the screen 'grip'.Then all of a sudden out of the blue, without any further intervention, the signal has just dropped off on BBC 1 HD again (ch41). Ch44 has dropped out s0 q0, ch33 s86 q0, ch36 s0-86 q0, ch48 s0-86 q0.
I don't understand why I would have stable readings and then they just drop off like this.
Get rid of that wallplate socket and Belling Lee TV plug connection. F-plugs and barrel connector instead?
That jiggling the wire made good is indicative it's dodgy.
