535 - Sky Sports Racing - Picture Breaking Up

Hi

This has been a problem for quite a time but appears to be getting worse.

Can anyone take a look at the signal?

Thanks

Do you have a V6 or a Tivo 500? Have you also tried another HDMi lead to ensure it's not just a faulty cable? Also check that the White coaxile cable is firmly connected and tight and not loose.

It's not a V6.

It's not a loose cable (although I have checked) or the lead because other channels (at least the one's I am watching) are okay.

Particular problem on this channel. That's why I specifically referred to it.

Re: 535 - Sky Sports Racing - Picture Breaking Up

The picture quality on this channel is absolutely horrendous, almost unwatchable.

There is also some break up of picture on 536 - Racing TV.

Can someone take a look as a matter of urgency?

Hi IanS, 

Thank you for your post, I have done some remote checks and can see that you are currently in an area outage you that would be affecting this, the estimated fix date is 12th Feb the reference for this outage is F007268423. If after the outage you are still experiencing issues with your picture we can book an engineer to come and have a look.

Thanks,

Zoie_P

Thanks

Would an outage be a reason why only certain channels are affected?

Thanks for popping back IanS,

Yes, it does say that some channels may be effected with freezing poor picture or total loss of picture, please keep us updated if it is still not resolved after the date 🙂
Thanks,

Zoie

Having improved a little for a couple of days the situation has reverted to being as bad as when I first flagged the issue. 6 days to go.

Re: 535 - Sky Sports Racing - Picture Breaking Up

Same as before.

It was improved on Tuesday but back to terrible today - the day given as the 'fix'. 

It cannot be my equipment because it isn't affecting all the channels. There is clearly an issue - seemingly on a day to day basis - with the signal for this channel in particular. How can it be okay one day and rubbish the next?
