    I have a Tivo Bolt. My signal strength is 67, causing pixilation on a number of stations. What should I try in order to improve/fix this? Do I start with replacing the splitter? Thank you!

    Are you on OTA or cable card?

    Have you always had this problem? More info would be helpful.

    -Your cable service
    -Your connection (MoCa, Cable and Ethernet or Cable and Wi-Fi)

    Did you ever have a DVR from your cable company to compare it (signal strenth) to?

    67 is NOT low signal; anything over 42 is usually just fine for perfect picture on a Bolt, PROVIDED, however, that there are no other problems with the signal, such as high noise or multipath issues. If you are having problems at 67%, you need to fix the other issues in your signal, not the strength.

    I hooked the Bolt up 4 years ago, so I don't recall all the details requested above. It is Cable hookup. It does have a Cable Card. I have not compared it to other DVRs, as this is the only one that I have used. I have Frontier Communications service. Everything worked well until a week ago and several channels started pixelating. The other 90% of the channels are fine. I also have a Mini and have the same pixelation with it.

    Frontier checked it and said the router is bad and they are sending a new one. Thanks for the above help.
