    Has anybody out there got more than one on digital box?

    I'm using two (in the same room, both connected to the outputs from an aerial amplifier). The first is an oldish pace box (1999 vintage) and the second is a new Pioneer.

    I get a good picture on most channels but have recently noticed that the mux carrying Granada plus gives a "2 bar" green for good signal on the pace yet a "3 bar" average signal on the pioneer. Generally the Pace pulls in a 2-3 bar green signal and the Pioneer a 3-4 green one.

    This is frustrating as I cant understand why only this mux is weak on the pioneer box. If there was a general problem then I'd expect all mux's to be weak. I phoned OND and asked if there was a problem with the sutton coldfield transmitter - they said no.

    Anyone else have experience of different signal strengths being shown by different boxes processing the same input?

    That said, I can always use the Pace box to record the Granada plus mux, and the other box for other channels but it is a bit of a pain.

    Hi,
    I've got a Nokia and a Pace 735. Nokia
    shows 5 on all muxes, whereas Pace shows
    3 usually. Less breakup on the Pace box
    due to interference funnily enough..
    Hopefully helpful
