About 2 days ago I started noticing a strange glitch with TV2 where the bottom half of the screen went static for a few seconds while the top half (and sound) stayed unaffected. I saw this happen a few times that day and haven't seen it since but now I have this issue where the bottom half of the screen is slightly out of sync with the top half during fast moving scenes.

All the other channels appair to be fine so I can't really work out what could be wrong at my end and was wondering if anyone else was seeing the same issue.

I'm using an Elgeto EyeTV Hybrid with the latest sortware running on my new MacBook. I've had this set up for a few months and havn't noticed any problems till now.

Well, the good news is that it is not your box as I am having the same problem. Using the DSE box and have had the same fault, along with a flicker of some kind when scenes change.

Are you taking freeview off the Te Aroha transmitter by any chance?

Yeah I'm based in Hamilton. Sounds like maybe there's an issue with the Te Aroha transmitter. I might try work out who to contact at freeview so that maybe they can do something about it. Thanks heaps for that. It's a load off knowing that there's nothing wrong with my hardware :)
