thanks Scott- my installer said the signal strength "is not like the others". I guess now it is.SCOTT-WHILE I HAVE YOU--- I told the installer to forget about the OTA. Buty from what I see using my old antenna, the VOOM box appears to perform better and I am regretting not having used thier set-up. Do you agree about the performance ?
It was pouring where im at yesterday and Voom was unwatchable. I couldn't go 5 seconds without a pause and pixelation. It was HORRIBLE. My signal Strength was at 71!! Its usually around 95. So Lucky for yall on getting good reception in rain, I had to just put a dvd on.
We had some decent rain this weekend in the Chicagoland area and it didn't go out for me at all. Maybe only small pixellation here and there. But this was the first significant rain we had since I got Voom installed a couple weeks ago. My signal is usually at around 95. I did notice it go down to about 89 during the rain, but still no real significant breakups at all.
It depends on the type of rain. I've lost my signal with a light mist, yet had a strong signal with a downpour and vice versa. It all depends what's between you and the sat, not necessarily what's falling at your house.
