      Time to upgrade to Pro for me then I think. Wish Sky had told me this in the beginning but they seem to have done their best to put me off for some reason.

      Your margin is not very low, 6db is plenty. If you were not on Pro your margin would probably be in the twenties. You must be very close to the fibre cabinet.
