Did you get anywhere with this problem?

I'm struggling with what seems like poor signal now, other TV's in the
house which I have retuned
seem fine, no artefacts or audio blips.
However on BBC1 for instance, I am seeing artefacts and audio problems
every 20 or 30 seconds?

I thought it was a problem with the Nova-T tuner cards so I removed
them and just have the USB tuner connected
but it is the same.

A Sony TV connected to the same amplified splitter is fine.
