Ive certainly seen better cables ;)  I know money is tight currently, so unless theres a problem, it wont be remedied....esp as the clutch bleed lasted a day before no clutch again, no great suprise, but probably means the end of the car

Fair enough, but worth bearing in mind in case of further issues. :y

So, the government has heaped subsidies and encouragement on a technology that turns out to be a complete crock? Fancy that! ::)

Yep, the symptom is gone, but the cause is probably still there, in that the HDMI cables are radiating something nasty. Are they cheap looking cables?

I ask as, if they're prone to radiating interference, they're equally prone to collecting it, so they might find the picture / sound on the TV drop out every so often.

Good to have got to the bottom of it, though. :y

Must sort the wiring here some time as the muppets who built the place connected one wire out of each pair to the A, B and ring lines on the faceplate. ::)

Not an issue with ADSL as I've got a filter faceplate, but there are some nearby sources of RF interference that might upset blow the @rse out of the phones. ;D

Have you tried the Diagnose/Repair facility?

Is that the one that's shaped like a wooden stick with a 4lb lump of cast iron on one end? ::)

I am convinced the non volatile memory in CCR2006s gets poorly eventually.

Occasionally mine will forget what radio station was tuned in and sometimes, it fails to turn off, leaving the MID illuminated until I pull the fuse to reset it. ::)

Best plan is probably to replace it with a cheap aftermarket head unit and fascia adaptor, TBH. More of a PITA if you have Bose, of course.

Might also be worth replacing the oil in the diff if it is a LSD.
Be sure to use a mineral oil with the GM LSD additive.

Hmm. It's possible ethernet is being passed through the HDMI. Absolutely certain none of the devices are connected to the router, though?

Does it have a limited slip diff? Just thinking that they are probably more common in your part of the world?

They tend to groan a bit when turning.

Ah yes, golf... A woefully effective way to ruin a walk to the bar/pub  :D
I used to play it as a way of trying to maintain some small level of fitness - one of many downsides to having a career as an office self-abuser.

It was effective (an fat bastard lugging a bag of bats around over his shoulder, and walking 3 times the distance of anyone else), and I saw lakes, woods and streams that I never knew existed ::)



I lost my bats in "the incident", never did replace them.

I found pushing gliders round an airfield has a similar effect on fitness.

That and the fact that, if you get too fat, they don't let you fly them any more. ;D

Sounds to me like the HDMI cables are radiating a lot of RFI and it's being picked up by poor internal phone cabling.

First thing I'd try is plugging the router straight into the master socket test connector and disconnecting the internal phone wiring. See if that improves the resilience of the broadband connection.

In future, I wish to identify as a mop and bucket.  :y

The one in the ladies' changing room at the gym* will be just fine. :-*













* - No, I don't really go to a gym ::)

it's up to Terry to decide how old he is / if "Terry's garage for family" should farm more work out  ;D or if he's happy to potter about ,keeping him active , beats playing golf  :D ;D

Indeed. None of this is any of our business. We are just here to provide as much help as possible. :y

..and anything beats playing golf.  ;D

An abhorrent act, without doubt, but one which caused no harm other than the obvious offence and the self-defamation of those who participated.

I only hope those whose incompetence caused the real Grenfell tower to be maintained in such a dangerous state are pursued with the same vigour by the legal system. ::)
