Will an amplifier help a fringe channel?

Pretty frustrating > have the huge Wiengaud hanging nicely from the rafters pointing mostly out the side of the house with some pointing through the edge of the roof. I'm getting 100% signal strength but only 45% Quality and no symbol quality. Why would a signal be 100% but the rest is poor?

Edit, now the signal strength dropped to 43% without touching a thing.

I'd reboot everything and rescan for channels.
If the problem still exists check terminal connections - all of them. Then check/replace the antenna balun. Then check the driven element connection to the balun and so on...

Something's not right if the big weingard is only 2% better than the small one.
