    The Maximum/Low category on that page is misleading as it is only comparitive to other Muxes from same place. Here all are 20kW - the 64QAM ones show Low compared to the 16QAM but the effective power reduction is small. Add a 5kw and IT would be shown "Low" and 2/A become "Medium".

    As already said, others have same problem. Is it all the 2/A channels weak, or just the 2 ones?

    Dunno! Where are you? What does wolfbane say? See FAQs.

    As to the "overhead" what I am saying is that the "Low" is misleading and should say "a little less high" so should only make a difference if you are very marginal.

    Have you asked around locally to see if others get same as you?

    I recognise that postcode. Have we already had this discussion on another thread?

    Here's something to try if you have a wireless access point/modem router try switching it off and anything else wireless just to rule it out.
    We recently had a case in similar circumstances.

    What scribbler was pointing out is channels that are 64qam need more signal than a 16qam channel,so in the case of C/P all the mux powers are 20KW so mux 2/A are going to appear weaker than the other four.

    let us how you get on
