Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Wenvoe transmitter area
The central heating? We've got gas central heating. Would that affect the tv? It's been fine for the past year. It's been raining for a while but would that just affect HD channels?
My next test will be to compare the TV's HD channel picture to the recorder's. I'll watch BBCHD through the TV and record the same channel through the recorder's tuner. If no disturbance on the live feed and some drop outs on the recorded picture then I'll isolate the problem to the recorder.
Seems a coincidence that Bargoed had engineering work just when the problem started. Is my problem indicative of this new 4G issue?

Problem solved. Thanks for replying. When I retuned the Panasonic bwt 720 gave me three options: Wales, GBR, and Best Signal. Picked best signal this time and now everything's perfect again (picked Wales before). Sorry to bother you. Posting now in case other set top boxes and TVs have similar options.
