I recently installed a AT-9 dish for the first time using my Bird Dog meter, but i noticed when using the signal meter on the H-20 HDTV receiever satellite signal strengths are considerably lower when compared to my standard D-11 standard definition receiver i get 80-90 and H-20 50-60 is there a problem with the signal strength on the H-20'S?:)

It's perfectly normal. The signal strengths on the H20 and HR20 are lower than on other receivers.

It's perfectly normal. The signal strengths on the H20 and HR20 are lower than on other receivers.

I can't speak for H20-600s (I find very few still working in customer's homes and they're not installed much anymore)- as for H20-100s it is normal to have the signal 10-15 points lower than a normal receiver. There is some internal attenuation being done to the KU-band portion of the satellite signal. The KA-band displays signal strengths as normal.

The HR20 shows 'normal' signal strengths. At my test bench at work- comparing an HR10-250 to an HR20- the Tivo shows 88% on xp 1 101 and my HR20 shows 89%.

I'm not sure what the patch on the H20-600 did but, FWIW, as of 3-4 weeks ago I still saw the reduced signal strengths on the last H20-600 I saw.
