We have a analogue decoder in the bedroom. I watched some TV on it last night and did not notice any banding.

freitasm:

Is anyone else using TCL analogue TV seeing some "banding" on the free-to-air channels?



Is this watching FTA channels through their decoder, or tuned in via a tv - I have a PVR that lately the TV3 signal - which comes off the TCL cable, has been really bad.

I plug the cable directly into my TV and it works fine, no decoder needed no banding. Not quite as clear as the digital signal but cheaper!

I had vertical banding on all channels on my analogue box. Confirmed it wasn't a TV issue by selecting the menu in the cable box which came up clear. I suspected it was a cable box fault since the banding would often collapse momentarily to a scrambled picture (as if the decoder wasn't working at all).

TCL came by tonight at 8pm (running somewhat late because of the cable faults caused by high winds in Wellington!) and replaced the cable box. All is well now.

Your problem might not be similar but it's worth checking out

This is now fixed... TCL came around Friday to fix my problem with the Internet connection, which happened to be something in the pole...
