      Picture Pixelating? Is Your Signal 2 High or 2 Low? High Signal But No Signal Quality

      It is a miss conseption that you can never have too much signal to your SKY box. The signs are simular for both... scattered/pixelated picture and sound.

      Look at your sky imput signal reading, if they are low then the chance is that you have a low bd signal. This may be because missaligned/defective dish, incorrectly setup/defective communal system, damaged/low quality cabling, defective SKY box.

      If you have full signal readings then it may be due to too much signal (high db input). This is simple to resolve, just insert a variable attenuator either before the SKY box or before Stacker Destacker if used.

      If you have full signal readings, but no signal quality reading on input one or 2 or both then the chance is that again your signal is too strong (high db). This is simple to resolve, just insert a variable attenuator either before the SKY box or before Stacker Destacker if used. This should then reduce the signal slightly, and make the signal quality meter reading appear again.

      SUMMARY

      YOU CAN HAVE BOTH TOO MUCH SIGNAL OR TO LITTLE BOTH SHOWING SIMULAR SIGNS INCLUDING PIXELATION/SCATTERING OF BOTH SOUND AND PICTURE.


      I Hope this brings resolve to someone without the 8 months it took me for resolve.

      Threads merged, although it would appear I broke some posts by doing so. Sorry!
