    I have two HR20's and I am showing 7 readings. The levels are all 95-100. Does this men anything? Does it vary depending on what channels are being watched?

    Here are mine.

    Someone let me know if I understand this...Each of these channels is a tuner.

    Eight tuners and communications. I noticed some zeros. Is this normal.

    Zeros may be "common". Right now I have only one zero [and seven tuners online], but I've had three zeros on the same system before.
    In the SWM8 trials, we couldn't always get the zeros to match the numbers of tuners in use.

    With two SD and two HD channels results were similar.

    My other HR20 was tuned to 1 HD channels and XM channel 850.

    This is with 22B. My results with 229 were a bit different- there were two zeros.

    Is this just a coincidence or has something changed in the CE firmware that wuold afftect this.

    I did get the balkc screen when exiting-as reorted by lots of people in a separate thread.

    I doubt the CE was the cause of the changes, but the rebooting to download the CE was the reason.

    Interesting since I had just rebooted each HR20 on Thursday prior to me seeing the 7 SWM signals. I then rebooted each HR20 again after I downloaded 22B in each set.

    What is involved in seeing 7 versus 9- I am very confused about what these levels mean.

    What you want to see is high levels [just like transponders], but the actual number of channels used isn't as important [other than you knowing you're not excessing the limit].
    All the receivers are communicating on the 2.43 MHz signal and it may have to do with the "polling" at the time of rebooting.

    My signal strengths are typically 3-5 points higher than what I had with my SWM-8 and that was 1-3 points higher than the setup I had with the Zinwell 6X8.
