    Any one in here has been seen a problem when you has a Head End system with channel 14 and 15 and you want to inject this into a mfh2 system so customer can have analog services and digital. when you do this you will get a lot of snow on these two channel.is any solution for this out there or any way to fix this with out move these two channel to another frequency.

    Are there any local channels in the area the broadcast on channel 14 or 15? If so you might have a leak in the system and you are getting bleed through

    Must be something in the system since by default any analog signals below 860 or so MHz should be acceptable to the SWM.
    More info on your system?
    Are you just adding 14 & 15 or are these the only channels of many others affected.
    How are you "injecting". Thru MFH-6 , into swm individually or after swm's.

    one quick thought if into mutiple MFH-6 units is "over amplification"
    ? attenuate, try diplexing after swm's.

    Others may have more advice.

    This are the only channel with the issue everything else is fine.
    system description

    SCU ( MFH1) feeding a MST774 and this feeding the FMC-6 Chassis, analog cable is going into Off air input in the FMC-6 and from the FMC-6 going to the SWM-8 and them to customer Units, we also try to go direcly to SWM-8 and diplexing after the SWM-8.....

    What is the signal level of your channels in question before and after you inject them, remember the Swm looses approx 11 dB for insertion. The average headend distribution allows for approx 5 dB at the tap, once inserted you have -6 dB, then the cable loss of approx 3 dB gives you -9 dB and the splitter in the unit (4 way) --7 loss, totaling -15(fuzzy channels),

    Also verify that your headend has the appropriate balance and slope to the riser system.
    If you have any questions feel free to PM me.:)
