Signal strength is meaningless, it only means that your LNB is connected to the receiver. Signal QUALITY is what you want to look for, and it varies depending on how powerful the transponder you are tuning is. What constitutes good quality also differs from manufacturer to manufacturer. You'll rarely (if ever) get 100 percent.

I noticed with the newest Merc II software the meter went down

Equity shows like 50% max...is that normal?

The meter's value was decreased to facilitate stronger TP's are often difficult to tune if the meter is being overdriven. Older Firmware will display higher meter reading, so maybe also mention the SW version when comparing Quality readings.

The plus side is channels now are a solid lock with a >30% Signal Quality Reading!:D
