If you are using the tv lead to connect to airiel in on the tv; it is most likely the problem is caused by the "digital" tuning circuit in the tv.

You may be able to resolve this if you have a fine tuning feature, best thing would be to get a correctly wired scart lead and use rgb monitor output.

Failing that, try and find a much older tv with an analog tuning circuit. My sixteen year old sony tv has analog, and my ten year old tv had digital.
