    Yes I've noticed them on sky and stb freeview. If it's like the recent white dot problem then it should take them about 6 months to fix.:mad:

    Terrestrial analogue is fine as per usual.

    Not a very good advert for digital this.

    Noticed the same thing on Sunday when watching 'Enterprise'.
    Very irritating.

    Hi!

    I am really getting annoyed with these lines appearing on Channel 4 through my Sky+ V2 box.

    Is this a common problem or is there something I can do to correct it?

    I remember reading this thread before I got Sky+ and then looked out for it and, sure enough, I get annoying blue/white lines appearing that look like electrical spikes.

    Should I phone Sky and ask what is causing the problem?

    Cheers!

    Gordon
