Another easier approach is disconnect the other TVs (ie not the Sky box site and the PC site but the other two) they may be creating a earth loop

I have tried it with nothing but the 30m PC cable plugged into the Aerial cable and this didnt work.

Then i tried the aerial cable plugged into the amp and just the 30m pc cable coming out of it (This worked the best, almost perfect) But this poses the problem of how to connect all the other tv's and how to get the sky signal to the PC aswell. When the aerial goes the sky box then to the amplifier with just the 30m PC cable is is stuttery again.

So if I'm reading you correctly, the amp would work, if the sky box weren't in the system?

Have checked that your not sending your SKY signal on a UHF channel that overlaps with the digital one? Not trying to insult your intelligence but sometimes it's the simple things you miss.

It is currently on UHF channel 38 according to the sky box, I have never really fiddled with this as when the computer is in the lounge it accepts the mixed sky and uhf feed fine with no problems, just when the cable gets longer the problems come. I guess i could try another rf channel any suggestions which would interfere the least?

Try 36, if no joy take it below broadcast to 21 - 24 or around there.

Personally trying to fault find things like this without being there is hard work, you may find a tech with test gear may help.

i can appreciate that, it is very useful though so thanks for the effort. I think the easiest thing for me to do, after trying different uhf channels, would be to just split the UHF cable on the roof near the aerial and take it the short route to my room where no interference is, then i can be pretty sure its got the least possible number of possible problems. I can use the existing cable i have just for the sky feed and analogue channels if neccessary.
