I have learned to avoid recording programs on SHO East because the recordings can have quite a few spots with digital pixelation. Recently, I recorded the HBO show Chernobyl (a great show). The first two episodes I recorded on HBO2 East, and the remaining three episodes on HBO East. The first two episodes were full of digital pixelation, but not the last theee. Upon examination, I see both SHO East and HBO2 East are on 99CA TPN18. I see that AMC, TBS and SYFY are also on 99CA TPN18. While I am currently not recording any shows on these three channels, my bet is that I would see pixelation on those channels as well. Looking at the signal strength of this transponder, I am registering a 95% signal. What could be causing the issues on 99CA TPN18 if it isn’t a signal strength issue? Could an equipment issue in my setup be so selective as to only affect one transponder? Signal quality issues continue to frustrate me, because I can never figure out what is wrong.
