Whats up with Prime, all the other channels are fantastic however Prime always goes to "crap" at night. During the day theres no issues. 

At night during prime time (no pun intended) theres the odd sound cut out and picture distortion. I connect up a amplifier/booster and then all the channels seem to cut out :-/

Tried to get a signal strength but the magic box doesn't show the signal strength when I check it. Will keep playing around with it I guess.

Good question, the aerial was setup by Sky long ago. I'm based in Milford I'd have to check what direction it's pointing in might be able to work it out from that. I do know it's not the sky tower.

Going by it's direction it's pointing at Waiatarua, same as the neighbors. Theres a second aerial on the roof was thinking of setting both up as the other one is pointing at pinehill.
