Hello everyone!

Can someone please try and explain why the picture on my digibox freezes no and again but the sound is still OK?

It's not as if its raining or windy when it happens, and it only freezes for about 5 seconds.

Oddley my parents and a work colleague are having the same problem.

Thanks for your help.

Shouldn't do Jessjosh, what make and model of box do you have?

Is it all channels, or just particular ones and what are you showing in the signal strength/quality readings.

Added to Rolf's comments - how many video tapes are stacked on top of the box? My ex used to do that and we would have all manner of problems; with the picture that is ;)

Have Fun,

Mark.

The Amstrads are very prone to this. The processor is not up to the job when there is a signal fade.
