You are right, I only described it in a previous posting.
What I see is a sudden patch of digital noise / pixelisation, often
associated with a chirping sound in the audio. This might happen every
few seconds for a while then go away for a minute or two, only to return
randomly. Also it is of various severities, sometimes just a minor
fuzzy pixel patch, sometime a large streak of random colour pixels.
Sometimes the audio just skips a bit, other times it is a very loud
Does that sound like anything you've seen before?
