charsleysa: To add to this, remember that your coaxial cable is most likely unshielded so it's susceptible to close range interference such as power cabling. If your power cabling and coaxial cabling happen to run near/beside/parallel to each other than feedback from the router being plugged in could be traversing your power cabling, crossing over to your coaxial cabling and interfering with your signal.


We had major renovations about 4 years ago and had new shielded coaxial cable installed. If it was a close range interference thing I would imagined it would effect all the digital channel and not just the +1 channels.

 


Did you try my recommendation? Even shielded cabling is susceptible to some degree, also it is possible to get interference through power cabling to the TV.

It may not be the WiFi causing the problem. A dodgy power supply on the router could be feeding noise back through the power cable to other devices. Do you have another power supply you could try?

I recommended he try finding out if it is something to do with the power by turning on his router but turning off the WiFi signal.

Good plan ;-) Sometimes it's the simple things!

The problem is now resolved, I now have a perfect TV picture.laughing I was going to try changing the channel of the WiFi first but I thought I would try changing the mode instead. Hey presto it worked.

I changed the wireless mode setting from 108Mbps (Dynamic) to 108Mbps (Static) and that fixed the problem. Not exactly sure what the difference is between the two modes.

I'll play around a bit more to see what affects the Freeview decoder.

All these years of my wife nagging me about how crappy Freeview is, and how it never works.

New Problem. No wireless devices can see the SSID of the Wifi Router when it's in 108Mbps (Static) mode. I've now changed is to 54Mbps (802.11g) instead and I still have a perfect TV picture.

Basically those are your wireless modes, you're just making your WiFi slower and slower.
Seems like it's time for an upgrade.
