I am less than five miles from Atlanta HD towers, and

signal strength reads 100 on all channels with a Toshiba

DST3000 and a Radio Shack double bow-tie antenna. Picture

quality is great, but I wonder if I may periodically run

into signal overload problems. What are the signs of signal

overload ? Does the picture break up, go away, or does the DST3000 circuitry prevent such situations ?

Signal overload at the tuner's front end "can" cause DTV reception problems. The easiest way to predict overload is to look at the analog signals coming from high power stations on the same towers. If you see thin diagonal lines in the analog picture and black on adjacent chanels on your analog tuner you may be experiencing overload. Radio Shack sells a cheap and effective solution: a variable attenuator that you can plug into the line from the antenna. Just turn down the signal level until the interference in the analog picture "just" disappears then observe your DTV reception and see if it has become more stable. Readjust as needed.
