This has probably been asked before somewhere. Occasionally I get a black block appear at the bottom of the screen, on it will be an odd assortment of letters, digits and other strange symbols, is this normal? or should I contact the little fat bird from Poltergiest:hiya:

Does it occur when you change channel?

Sounds like it could be the box that shows what channel you're on, but the signal may be weak so it's not being displayed correctly, much the same as when you try to use teletext with a weak signal?

yeh you're right, sometimes says channel 4 or itv1.But other times for no apparent reason a string of letters/digits like a maths equation will appear for a few seconds before disappearing again.It's not a problem, just curious what it is.
