    willing be moving in a week and just installed a new premier for my brother-in-law. after getting the m-card moved and installed noticed some stations are missing and singal strenght number are all in the high 30's and mid 40's for about 90% of the channels.

    should i be calling time warner before i go to have some one do a truck roll to see if this can be corrected before i go. he will be going to hospital that same week to have knee replacement and then right to rehab for 3 weeks of therapy

    Mines at 72 percent. When I imformed the Tivo rep she suggested that BH place an amp filter in play...

    BrightHouse claims the signal strength is acceptable for their intents an refuses to install an filter to boost the signal

    Mines at 90+%. A short while ago, my cable signal used to drop and I would get artifacts and stuff. The cable guy came and changed some cables and couplings and did some stuff outside. He says after a while sometimes moisture gets into the cable and messes it up.

    Yeah, I inspected the connections at the box mounted to the house an found the cables had rusted

    tech arrived on tuesday afternoon and after boosting singal strenght by 100% and swapping out tuning adapter am very happy. singal before he arrived was down to mid 30's and lower 40's is now at mid 80's to lower 90's. thank you so much time warner

    he did go outside and make adjustments first and also put a booster in place also in the house.
