We have a Zinwell 620HD and a MagicTV 3600

We can see Mt KauKau in Wellington

Recently two things happened - first there was the retune about a month or so ago & around that time our good quality belkin RF cable was damaged.

I got a replacement white RF cable from bunnings.

However, the Zinwell 620HD which has this cable can pick up TVNZ + the kordia muxes fine but it keeps showing the signal/quality meters for Mediaworks dropping every second in the manual channel mode. For the brief second it sees it both strength and quality bars are quite high.

The MagicTV shows the mediaworks solid (at 100% quality, 71% strength)

I have tried the manual settings on all combos of the following
570000 / 569950 / 570050
6mhz / 7mhz / 8mhz
priority low & high

But it still does the same pattern of showing strength+quality for a second then gone.

Any ideas?

It's probably sub-standard quality.
If you mean it's the short cable from the box to the wall then be careful what you buy.
I've had about a dozen or more in the last 10 - 15 years with moulded plugs and most have been poor quality. Some wouldn't even work at all. My RG6 home-made cables with screw on f plugs and f - pal adaptors work fine.
Get a high quality one from Jaycar or DSE or somewhere or make your own.
