    It isn't something you can really tell looking at the photo I provided.

    I tried that. I used ferrite USB cables or added ferrites if they had none, same goes for audio cables.
    I ended up buying a USB isolator that isolates the power and ground wires from the pc.
    Nothing I tried worked. I have good clean grounds on everything but the second I put power to the charger the noise is there. If I disconnect the ground from the charger and just leave the postive connected the laptop still shows that it is charging.

    My problem is fixed but I thought I'd mention it for the sake of others who may come across the same problem.

    There are two SOT regulators at the top with a hf cap and a electrolytic buffering. there doesn't appear to be any LC filters (I could be wrong) so I'd say it was built on a bench and not with an alternator for a power supply.

    Just to add , I think the big cap in the top left is adjacent to the hf cap (this buffers the 5v), next is a 3.3v regulator with big cap and hf cap, and adjacent to that is the 1.2v regulator and big cap and hf cap.

    Please don't get me wrong, that layout is neat and efficient and I commend whoever designed it but I don't believe it was designed in a market that has dab or dab+, the reason is when the venice tunes to a weak signal (multiplex) its power rails fluctuate, if the caps/filtering aren't man enough, the radio will reset itself or start to go choppy, this is really evident on channel 11D.

    Nope. My phone just takes rubbish photos but it is the only thing I had to hand to take a photo with.

    What i would prefer is that you ship me the new board (just the base board) in exchange for the old one, when its available.

    btw, i'm using latest version of the CF plugin.
