Can I improve the signal on my HD box?

My box is in my bedroom which comes off a splitter downstairs up to my box through a coax cable. But my signal is 76% max, Can I improve this in any way or any devices I can buy? Its a long cable which I dont want to replace. Thanks. :thumbsup:

Hi

You don't say if you have any problems with reception, such has freezing pictures or drop-outs?

If not, you don't need to do anything. Picture quality on Freeview doesn't change with signal strength, so even if you had 100% signal level or 10% signal level, providing it works, the picture quality is identical.

Hope that helps.

Regards

Phil

But my signal is 76% max,

...and if that 76% refers to signal strength rather than quality then it is an ideal figure.

Neither too strong nor too weak, either of which can cause problems.
