    good morning all !

    apologies if this question has been raised before ( if so perhaps someone could direct me to the link ) but I wanted to know what signal strength I should be getting when I check the levels on the sky system details menu ?

    generally both signals seem to be about 50-60%

    Pezzer - nothing to worry about if the system's working fine.

    They are a rough guide only.

    Mine hovers are around 50-60%.

    Lately when finalising my DVD-R's (on SP quality) they are taking 3 minutes as opposed to the 5 minutes that they used to take, this leads me to suspect that either the bitrate has dropped or I'm not geting them all.

    Is that explanation possible??
