hi
as my aerial setup was bad. i finally got my aerial properly alligned (waiatarua), installed booster and properly crimped the cable so the connectors dont get loose. i also tested signals using the ScanChannelsBDA utility and i was hitting -20 for strength and 80-100% for quality for freq 570000KHz (TV3). however this doesn't stay the same during the day. esp around 6pm my signal for tv3 is very poor. quality is like 10-30%. why would it fluctuate so much? and its only for tv3. tv one and 2 are perfect whenever u watch it.

The 2 reasons i had signal problems was a loose connection (which doesnt seem to be your case) and a faulty hvr2200 card. Fortunately i had a hvr3000 card which helped me to determine the hvr2200 was faulty.

Just tried the scanchannelBDA utility and I can't get any quality rating other than 0!! I used our Mt Kaukau TV3 frequ of 224250KHz. Also used 224750KHz to no avail. Displays # signal locked = N present = N Does 'N' mean no?? Bit lost, here, obviously!!

Yes, got my wires crossed (literally?) there.

Using 690,000KHz shows strength = 40 but quality is still 0.

BTW, what does one enter for bandwidth?

Thanks, Charley and Gumdigger. Right frequ and right bandwidth helped!

Quality is peculiar - it fluctuates from 25 to 100 on (roughly) alternate lines. At least I know the signal is not totally stuffed.
