Maybe coincidence but ever since Wellington lost analogue we often get a blip or hiccup in the sound when watching Prime.  This never happened earlier.

About every two minutes there is a distinct cut in sound, not the picture, and doesn't occur with any other channel.

Anyone got a clue as to why it's happening?  Is it just my TV or other people in Wellington too?

What signal strength and quality?
Sounds like the Prime mux may be marginal.

>What signal strength and quality?<

No idea, will need to play with TV settings menu and look for that data. As I said, it's been perfect for over a year until now.

Signal strength for TV One was 100%, for Prime 98%.

Have done a re-scan, and will see what happens now.

are you using a separate amp/home cinema setup?

I have had problems with using the audio return channel before with my amp with symptoms similar to yours, although why it would be restricted to one channel i don't know.

Signal strength isn't as much use as signal quality. Quality shows the lack of bit errors. What are the quality readings?

Bit error level = 0

I now have the latest firmware update, just in case that helps ... will install tomorrow morning.

Have installed latest Firmware ... still got the hiccup, but seems to be at about 4 or 5 minute intervals.

Again ONLY on Prime!

I am assuming you have the orientation of your antenna correct for Fitzherbert, that is the rebounder bars vertical.

Do you have line of sight?
