My Digital TV reception is pixelated I have a two year old antennae on the roof and a booster on the coaxial cable but still getting pixelated reception. I have already spent $150 on trying to get this fixed. So now need quotes from someone who is confident they can repair this problem. Also it's not my TV as it is less than one year old.

Hi Alex. The best approach to this problem is to know what is happening with your signal. You might be able to substitute something in there to try and isolate the problem (different TV, a set top box, connectors etc.), but that is a somewhat hit-and-miss approach.

With the proper digital TV meter and taking some readings the current situation will become clear. And therefore the solution.

I'm just nearby at Bondi Junction. Pro-installer, 20 yrs experience. Happy to check and quote.

And also would like to know approximately how many meters of cable is used from the antenna to the TV.
Thanks
