    I use this box for my footy and other things. Just lately ITV HD has become impossible to watch Pixelating Juddering. My other freeview box a Amstrad old SKY box is fine on ITV HD. Both on seperate HDMI into Samsung Screen. The Amstrad skybox is fed from a sky dish and has excellent picture.
    My Spider box 7000HD is fed from a 1.1 Meter steerable dish. Only ITV is giving trouble and this problem has started just the last few weeks.
    Any thoughts welcome

    I have a thought. You have posted in the Freeview terrestrial topic, not the Satellite topic.:eek:
    There seems to be problems with ITV lately. Apparently they have changed the FEC (or whatever it's called) and it's giving lots of people problems.

    Mod you may wish to move this post.
    TJT1. Ta for reply. I thought is was not my trusty ol SpiderBox. It does all other stuff very well.
    My newish Samsung screen was having trouble with ITV hub but a new Auto upgrade from S has sorted that one.
    I will have a look at the FEC on this HD transponder.

    Not FEC or frequency both ok and 98% quality and signal.
    The transponder is a Free View with no encryption obviously. 11097 23000 V 3/4

    I have changed input from 1.1 triax dish to the small sky dish and the picture is good quality 82%. occasional picture small glitch but not a problem. So something wrong with other large dish but only on one frequency. I reply only as it may help some other soul.
