    Hi all, i have 2 freeview TV's in my house and my neighbour has a freeveiw box. We have recently noticed that when another neighbour fire's up his petrol lawn mower we lose signal and get very bad picture freeze. Anybody know if there's a cure for this ??

    The only defence is to ensure that you have the correct group aerial for your transmitter (if possible), fully screened coax (CT100 eg), screened amplifier/distribution, outlet plates etc.

    Other than that - you've had it.

    Digital - the way forward.

    There was a unit based in Bristol (Was called Dti now I think called Oftel) who are responsible for radio interference. They will monitor after a complaint and if the mower is producing over the permitted level of RF then he would be forced to correct it.

    However more neighbourly approach would be to ask him to fit suppressor plug cap and ensure all cowling's are in place.

    Aiming aerial, Using narrow band, Good quality coax, will all help.
