Signal strength on HDHR5 significantly lower than HDHR4

Post by GlenA »

I just noticed today that the signal strength on my HDHR5-4K tuner is considerably lower than the signal strength on my HDHR4-2US tuners, usually by about 20-30 points. Currently KENH-LD SS is reading 82 on my HDHR4 and 47 on my HDHR5. All other channels read similarly. SNR is lower by about 7 points. I remember there being a slight difference when I received the tuner in Oct. but I don't think it was this significant. I've already tried swapping cables on the tuner and the problem followed the tuner. I don't watch these weaker channels often so I've not noticed if there is degradation or not. I would have expected that with a SS of 47 but they currently look ok.
