TV1 looks great. Sometimes (alot) TV2 will have a lot of snow in the picture.
If I switch TV2 to the TV1 signal the picture is fine.
TV2 in another room has it's own decoder. I have no diagnostic hypothesis as to what could be the problem. Need help to diagnose.

Thanks in advance

Are you a Directv customer or Dish?

It may be the channel you have selected for TV2.

The higher UHF channels go the more loss there is over coax.

Set your agile modulator to the lowest channel you can for best results.

I am having the same problem . The lowest cable channel allowed on my 622 is 73. It seems cannels 21 -69 are for over air only. Am i misunderstanding something?

Go into the menu settings of your TV2 (not the box, but the Tv itself) and look for something that has to do with tuning band...signal type.....something along that line. See if you can change the signal type for the TV from cable/CATV to air/ant.
Then change the modulated output on the recvr for TV2 to 60 air. Put the TV on 60 and see if that helps. Also, if there are diplexers being used, make sure they're hooked up correctly.
