    Most affected channels wouldn't happen to be BBC 2 and E4 would they by any chance? It's a pain in the arse, and NTL just say it's because of low signal. I keep on at them to boost the signal, but they don't seem to be very enthusiastic about such an idea.

    I have the same TV and NTL digital.

    When my digibox died and a new one was installed the engineer (who seemed to know his stuff) said that the NTL Pace digiboxes were known for poor RGB conversion and said I should always use composite. I have one of the older boxes (that can't use IR control).

    He suggested I connected via S-video scart. I did notice some improvement, although I think the pixellation is down to poor signal more than anything.
