So I found the adjustment screw on my distribution amp. It was set on a low setting and I believe I was able to turn it down to the lowest level (-5db). I tried to turn it up and my signal quality really dropped based on the readings from HDHomeRun Config. So I turned it back down as low as it would go. It is a screw that does not stop no matter what direction you turn it. It just clicks and so I assume that is the end of the adjustment. So as I stand now, my two lowest signal quality is as follows:
Channel 9: 76%
Channel 7: 82%
Would the RCA ANT751R improve on these channels?
On another note, I turned on the diagnostic for my HDHomeRun and opened a ticket with SiliconDust. Here is their response:
Please install the attached firmware file on your device using HDHomeRun Config GUI, and check to see if that clears up your issue. The firmware you're currently running has the best performance for about 95% of people, but in a few cases, the older firmware works better. The difference between the two is an update to the microcode for the component that actually translates the radio waves into digital data that we received from the maker of that component. The issue you're seeing has been reported back to them.
I was using firmware 20130708Beta1. Before that I was running firmware 20130328 which I installed a few months ago. I believe that is when I started having problems. The firmware they sent me is 20120405. Sounds like my problem may not be related to my reception?Edited by mifronte - 10/3/13 at 3:18pm
