I agree it's very hard to define what happened after the new cable was installed.


Question

When the two cables are swapped does the poor signal follow the cable or remain with the tuner ?

What happens if the two cables are swapped at the lnb ?

What coax cable was used for the replacement cable and how long is it ?

No change if swapped stays on tuner 2
lnb not changed (invercomb quad)
if I change the leads over on the inputs I still get
Tuner 1 strength 90 quality 90
tuner 2 strength 20 quality 90
Put coax onto a different output on lnb but no change

Did you touch any connections while the receiver was connected to mains power? If you did, you may have short-circuited the LNB power supply and caused damage inside the receiver.

Do not think so but it was raining it still works but only shows 20% power would it show that if shorted???
