Since NTL messed about with the signal strength in my area a couple of weeks ago, my BER has been all over the place, where as before it was always around 0 on every channel.
I know for a fact they were messing about with it because the tv service for this area went down totally, then several other areas nearby had the same problem the following few days.
I got the engineer out because it is also affecting my ntl stb(sticking picture), but he basicly did nothing apart from put the attenuators that i took off back on the box, yet i'm still having the same problems, on both the dbox & ntl box, picture sticks ever so slightly, but it happens quite often, every 5 mins or so, enough to get on your tits, the engineer informed me ntl changed the signal strength for the area & i was getting too much signal.
There's obviously a fault somewhere with the tv service, because it wouldn't be happening on both boxes, i'm going to try an attenuator on the dbox, if that doesn't sort it, i'm going to have to call them again, because the picture sticking is doing my head in, but as usual it never seems to happen when the engineer is here.
There also seems to be an increased amout of people on here posting about the same problem, i'm starting to wonder if it's something ntl are doing to try & distort the signal to the dbox, because if it is, it's certainly working, & like i said, my box always worked fine before this happened a few weeks ago.
