hi guys had new HD box fitted and engineer said signal was too strong and fitted 3 "digital signal conditioning filters" to the back of the box..... a day or so later i started to get whole screen going a flickering white screen instead of picture but sound ok....i tried to change channel and it blew my fuses in house....tv repaired it saying power source had gone and replaced it for £198...took it home and 2 hours later same thing and its blown again. tv is a smasung 50inch
question is could this fault on screen be anything to do with this supposed too strong signal or is it a fault inside my TV....

I'll pass this on to one of our engineers to see if they can provide an answer, I'll let you know as soon as I have a response.

I dont think an excessive signal level will cause your TV to pack up, as the level is boosted / attenuated as required by the TV as one of the first parts of it being processed.

I think you may have an underlying problem with the TV
Even if the signal from the cabinet are very excessive, they will not cause any harm to the TV, as the power is less than 1 Watt.
Lets see what Laura gets back from the engineers

The engineers have checked this out and advised the following:
"The signal in our cable even if set up to the absolute maximum is only 100th of one watt. That is about one tenth of the power of a small hand torch it could not damage a TV. Also the signal we send to the TV is about one tenth of that and goes through delicate components that would blow up first."
