Hi, looking for a little more help with the issues i had posted about previous.
To give a little background:
I did have a FOX-T2 box which has no signal issues at all, every time i turned it on though it was giving a green screen that took a lot of time to get working so we finally thought a new box would be best.
After having a good look around i finally went with the 5000T, i love the amount of programs you can record at once.
Right from the start the picture on the 5000T would break up now and then, freeze then start or bring up an actual error saying signal too weak or lost (or something similar).
I noticed that when i would get an error message saying signal too weak or a big freeze in the picture, the signal strength and quality would drop to 0% then go back to normal numbers.
I had my first unit swapped to try and rule out an issue with the first box but the 2nd unit has the exact same issues.
I have tried a 4G signal cutter which didn't do anything, i have had the aerial fitter out twice who tried a couple of different things each time, he swapped the splitter in the loft, moved the aerial slightly, tested the connections, made a new good quality aerial cable for me, retuned the box to exclude welsh signals and it’s still got these issues.
The issues haven’t improved at all with any of the above.
I have now re-fitted my old Fox-T2 to try and make sure the signal is actually ok and its not breaking up on that now too (in case there was an actually physical issue with the aerial) after a while of getting the green screen to go away, i have now been watching tv all night and not 1 freeze or lost signal.
The signal quality of the 5000T would generally be around 70% and signal quality 100%.
Interestingly enough, i have just looked at the signal strength on the Fox-T2 and that shows only at about 42-44% and 100% quality.
I am wondering if a variable attenuator would fix my issues?
I may try and get one and see, but if its not that i feel like my only option is to send this unit back and just get a different make freeview box altogether, which is a shame as i have always really liked my humax boxes but i feel I’d have no choice as there seems to be a really big problem with the tuners on the 5000T in the area I’m in, it’s so odd the fox t2 is fine though with no signal issues.
Just so people know I am in south Liverpool and connect to the storeton transmitter.
If anyone can offer any further help that would be great.
