    as the title suggestes i have a problem with sky breaking up
    some channels are ok eg bbc1 bbc2 itv but most are causing a problem
    do you think this is most likely a hardware problem or what
    checked the signal strength and quality and both seem ok
    also could i just try another digibox or will it have to be installed?

    any help much appreciated

    Is this a box receiving the signal from the Sky satellite to Sky box or a terrestrial freview box? If the latter they do seem more prone to breaking up of pictures/pixalisation and picture freezing.
    One thing that can help if you if you have not got it already is get a special aerial for the freeview box and use satellite aerial wire(better grade and shielded than normal aerial wire).

    i have also noticed this over the last week or so , infact I came here to look for this problem!!

    Have they done an update recently?

    I have also notcied it more in the evening, could this be down to atmospherics and the signal not being such good quality on H&l UKFOOD etc?

    Many Thanks

    Nathan
