Time Warner guy is here trying to fix by friend's cable. I pointed out that the signal is too strong (According to the receiver's built in diagnostics) and the "Technician" responds that you can never have too strong/much of a signal lol

I had trouble with a satellite signal a few years back (C Band but digital signal) ... threw a -10dB attenuator inline and the signal to noise ratio was greatly increased. No more problems with signal.

I used FAR more attenuators in the analog era, but I still keep a bunch on the truck.
