Question about Philips FTR9955-17 DTV Receiver
I have a Grundig freeview box connected via a scart lead to the scart socket on an old 21" sanyo TV. Occasionally when changing channels on the freeview box the picture would flicker (almost like when the tracking is out on a VCR) and then the TV would switch from the AV channel back to the last selected terrestrial channel (1 to 5. Pressing AV again would bring the freeview channel back. Yesterday this started happening every 2 or 3 seconds even when the channels were not being changed. Any help would be gratefully received.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

OK, I think I see the problem there.
The aerial lead from the DVDR to TV should be removed.
You should have it setup the same as the other Freeview - VCR - TV
Main aerial to Freeview input.
Loop aerial from freeview output to DVDR areial input (all this does is allow you to watch freeview, or standard both out of the DVDR)
Scart from Freeview to DVDR input
Scart from DVDR output to TV
Set DVDR to AV input mode.
Set TV to AV (whatever number you need for that..you now won't get anything on screen unless you have the right input selected)
If you can now see the Freeview picture on the TV and change the channels with the Freeview remote then you should be set for recording.
Having the aerial and a scart lead both going to the TV is not needed.

SOURCE: I have two problems with
First I would move the box closer to the booster (amplifier) if its furthest away from it. Do you have another box you can swap out in that location to see if the problem is the signal for some reason? I am not familiar with the boxes but, is it possible at 11 PM they are doing guide updates or possible software updates at that time? I know that here in the U.S. our two satelitte companies do guide and software updates but, those usually occur in the early morning hours of 2 AM. Hopefully that helps.

If the Freeview box is not connected to the main aerial socket, you cannot get a signal.
Also, you will need a digital aerial, if you don't already have one.

The problem is in your cable connection on the back of your monitor or Box. I had the same problem and solved it by reattaching the VGA cable that was loose.
