have you got any pictures of this.


Do the test that JayCee suggested and let us know the result.

Sounds like a hum bar indicating a fault with the tv. Could've been the distribution amp if they were all like this. But they're not.

As suggested, take a pic of the fault.

done it tried it in another room was ok, took off the aeriel connector and 1 and only 1 of the outer coaxial cable was touching the middle one causing interferance

thx for your help everyone

just one question how comes there was no interferance with the freeview pic ?

thx again
