Sorry a bit of a novice but would appreciate some advice.

With my set-up I get nearly all (or more) Channels I would expect to get from where i am in Malta and size of my dish.

However although I get Channel 4 no problem.
Channel 4 +1 is heavily pixelated.- unusable. The signal rate is high around 80%. There does seem to be noise interference with.

I am fairly reluctant to start playing around with the lnb and sat position unless someone can advice me of whats the reasonable explanation.
So would be very grateful for any advice

A common problem with C4 +1. Its normally caused by DECT phones, wireless broadband routers etc.

Unplug all radio transmitting equipment in the house one by one and chances are the interference will go away at some point.

P.s could this effect any other channels as a matter of interest?

Yes - the ones on frequencies around 11600MHz are commonly affected as well.
