Bands of pixelation on TV

I’m getting intermittent bands of pixelation on the TV. I’ve tried checking all the connections and rebooting to no avail. This has happened before and an engineer eventually came and replaced the cable but I have a feeling it might be poor or faulty signal. The tests show it to be ok. Help!

Re: Bands of pixelation on TV

Pixellated pictures on live TV are often the sign of a signal fault. If you've rebooted your box once, then there's likely a fault somewhere, so call VM and report it. You're likely to need either an engineer visit or a replacement box, depending on what VM's remote diagnostics turn up. They can do these while you're on the phone to them.

First check the automated faults line for any existing issues in your area that could be the cause: 0800 5610061. If nothing's reported, assume VM don't know about your fault and you'll need to call them.

150 from a VM phone, 0345 4541111 from any other phone - choose the options for "I have a fault with my TV service"
