    Hi all
    I put a Eurovox 2008 in my bro in laws hse in Lucan and it works for a few hrs and then starts updating channels for ages ,then it will work for another couple of hours and start searching again.This box works perfect in my dads house .I have flashed it with the kuro beta and turned the booster on but it dosn't seem to make any difference .
    I have also tuned it in in my dads house (all 138 channels ) and brought it to Lucan were again it only works for a couple of hours before it starts searching again.I can't figure this out and it driving me nuts .Will a tv signsl booster mske any difference? or has anybody any suggestions
    Thanks

    The EV auto updates the codes no need for a powerscan. I have heard of signal problems in Lucan though.

    Or is there another type of box that is less sensitive to weak signals {the n*l box works fine all the time }

    Have you tried the EV from the direct feed without any splitter?

    Press menu, installation, user installation. You should see 13 TPs what signal level/quailty are you getting in general and are they consistent or jumping up and down?

    Thanks for trying to help but I'm not in his house at the moment and as is always the way it works fine whenever I'm there .I think I will tell him to buy a signal booster anyway to see if this helps .I will let you Know what happens
    Thanks again

    No problem, but if the signal is too high a booster will only add to the problem, hence why I asked for the signal info, you may need an attenuator if it is too high.

    Optimum is around 85%, below 75% is too low, above 90% is too high. If you are between 80 to 90% you should be fine, but the signal level/quality must be stable and not jumping up and down.
