I have r cently signed up for BT TV, nc BT sport and hd.
All the non- had channels work fine but when I try to watch BT sport in he the picture is ok for a little while but then starts pixelating. Sometin
mes it s too bad to watch but sometimes the picture clears for a while.
When it pixelates I can switch to the equavelent non- hd channel and the picture is perfect.
I reported the problem to BT and their support team in India talked me through resetting the box ( two separate occasions) but that hadn't helped.
I don't know how old my tv aerial is but it could be old. I normally watch via Sky but have never had any problems when I have watched via my "tv", although that does have a built in free view box.
I can't seem to get any definite answer as to whether the HD problem might be conn cited to my old aerial and don't want to waste money n a new aerial if it is not necessary. My BT Infinity speed varies between 32-36 MPs.
Any help appreciated !

It could be errors on your broadband connection.
Is there any noise on your phone calls? Dial 17070 and select option 2, there should be no noise between the announcements.
Hi Keith, thanks for your fast reply!
Have tested as you suggest and there is absolutely no noise on the line, and I have no noise during normal phone calls.
Your Tv Aerial signal will impact the Freeview channels only.
So your old aerial is not the cause of problems on the BT Sport HD channels which along with any channels numbered 300 - 599 are delivered over your broadband connection.
You haven't mentioned how your box is connected to the Hub. A direct ethernet connection is preferred, if your using powerline adaptors these could be the problem.
You can discount the TV aerial, and the box is unlikely to be faulty. The problem with powerline adaptors is the properties internal wiring which can cause issues with multicast streaming, specifically HD which will use more bandwidth. A pair of higher spech adaptors may resolve the problem, but can't be guaranteed. The cheapest way will to run an ethernet cable from the hub to the box, length is not an issue.
