    Yeah I think a signal issue would cause pixellation / distortion and not freezing.

    We had to put a shorter cable on the splitter and it sorted it out.

    Have been in contact with line provider an he reckons theres no problem with his lines. Told me to unplug everything to reset/reload box & hub. Will give it a go tonight after work.
    Thanks for any info.

    I've had this-freezing for quite a while on certain-and usually less popular channels-lets put it this way footy has been ok.My provider says his line is ok and even referred me to this post! I used to have a second official vm box which worked great and this is the feed I'm using for my zgemma

    people tend to forget how old crappy cables have issues,newer cables with crimped fittings are better.

    Where can I buy the new cables virmin use? ( the push in ones )
    Or would anyone have a link to where to get the cables with the crimped fittings?
    Cheers.
