Can anyone shed any light on a small problem I have.
I have 2 DM500c's with new and old tuner. Both boxes are fed from same splitter and signal booster.

It may sound a bit screwy, but what I have found is that box with new tuner will pick up channels that old tuner will not pick and vice versa.

Also old tuner picks up more channels than new tuner.
I have tried different images with exactly same problem.


Any suggestions appreciated.

Try connecting both boxes to the main feed on their own, without any splitters, cable boxes or modems on the line.

You will get the best signal strength possible this way.

The DW 1.6.1 image has the ability to change tuner drivers. Maybe an old tuner box with a new tuner driver doesn't so well on your signal. It's all about trial and error and finding the best combination for your setup.

Nothing new to add here but I have found u really have to look at the images u are using closely.

The image I have on my box (old tuner) now Is waay better than the others. Put aside an hour or so and try them all. Look at the singal levels and picture on a few of the channels on each image and pick the best one for your box.

There's not allot else that han't already been said so far u can do really.
