Hi,

I have been getting heavy pixelation during HD live broadcasts of the Aus v Ind cricket. I've attached a screenshot of my signal strengths. Just trying figure out whether it's a fault with my set up or a fault with sky's equipment/installation.

Thanks,

Sir you need a sky tech out. You have EMI or possibly DECT.

Looks more like EMI. Simple fix (assuming it is that) LNB swap to a single.
EMI could be caused by appliance not being happy or a dimmer or an energy saver lightbulb.

What about a dodgy uplink from the content originating side?

If it's constant across everything - emi or if it happens when certain things are on.
If it's only over certain channels dect- to confirm he could try turning off router and then phone to rule them out

But don't quote me I asked my mate who installs sky

When it was installed they put the signal down the already installed aerial cable. Our router is down the other end of the house, if that makes any difference. It seems to only happen during HD broadcasts, that I am aware of so far. The signal quality seems lower then what we previously had at my previous house.

im pretty sure there is a conduit in the roof that houses the aerial/sky cable and the Ethernet cables from the modem and ONT if that makes any difference.

also if you have any Freeview sat boxes disconnect them from the lab incase they are having a fit, remember to re connect them if its still playing up
