    I have just connected up a JVC 28" flat screen TV to a Grundig digibox
    (decoder). In parallel with the digibox I can still tune into conventional
    terrestrial TV channels as before. The problem is that with the digibox
    channels there is often a flickering of the picture - rapidly jumping up and
    down by a small amount. This can occur on a single channel depending on
    which camera shot is being shown. The flickering will turn on and off
    depending on the shot. The fault never occurs when I am tuned into a
    conventional channel (signal directly from antenna via co-ax cable), without
    using the digibox. I have tried all possible input sockets for the Scart,
    and also changed the picture display (mode) settings, but to no avail.

    Any ideas what the cause might be, please?

    Just in case anyone can help me with this, I now have some additional
    information on the problem. The setup is such that I can either tune
    the television to freeview via my VCR , or to AV directly to the
    digibox via a scart cable. The flickering occurs only via the VCR,
    tuning the VCR to freeview either via the scart or co-ax connection -
    but on certain channels only.

    If I find such a channel by either of these routes and then toggle the
    TV tuner from VCR to AV the problem comes and goes accordingly.
