I've heard this before. I believe but cannot be sure that they are using a
cheap Chinese SDR for the receiver which has no filters at the front end.
Quite why this should affect signals merely going through it is not known
unless they have an amp inside with no headroom and no filters also.

Like I say I've heard of this issue before form somebody who works next to a
taxi transmitter site on top of a station.

We have two Humax boxes, because my wife knew someone who had one and
showed her haw to work it. They are both the most unutterably unfit
rubbish. Even 5 Watts on any frequency from my Amateur Radio transmitter
destroys the received picture. The permitted 400 W ? One's mind boggles.
All five TV receivers are immune, as they should be by law. With the TV
antenna passing through the Humax junk, even if it's switched off, the TV
connected is unusable. All customary filters, ferrite applications and so
on are to no avail.

Attempts to communicate with the makers are useless, it's like trying to
deal with Micro$oft. A different PVR - with far better facilities -
generates no EMC problems.

Does the Humax(s) have an earth through the aerial system to make the
box screen better?
