    Sorry if this is the wrong forum but I have a problem that is driving me up the wall.

    When I am watching TV (Signal received through cable with no set top box) certain channels have rubbish reception. If I turn on a certain lamp the reception improves! I have to turn the lamp on quickly other wise my hot fix doesn't work.

    Any ideas!

    When you say "cable" do you mean an NTL style digital cable feed or are you talking about an arial connected to your TV by a cable?

    If in Eire then no idea - I didnt realise that they broadcast 'normal' TV signals down their cables and so assumed that the cable just happened to be picking up the broadcast along its path (in the same way that if you plug any long length of cable into an arial socket you will normally get picture improvements over no arial at all) but having not lived in Eire for many years and not having cable when I was there I wouldnt like to guess
