Centro - Weak Signal

We are trying to install a booster to help when we are inside the house. I have a booster, and wish to install it outside, but want to enter "test mode" on my Centro - so I can do 30 second "signal strength" tests outside for both data and phone. What frequencies need to be boosted, one? Two, how do I enter "test mode" on the Centro, to see the signal strength meter? and Three: If you were building a booster, would you worry about getting a directional signal towards the closest tower - and pipe that inside, to be amplified, or would you, just get the highest point possible - picking up all three towers, and amplify whatever tower grabbed the phone at the tiem? I know this is a lot of questions, and I will hold you totally to none of your answers - realizing that this is not your required job, so mainly tellme how to enter "test mode" on a Centro - and the rest you can answer only if you like. Thanks, Mike

depending on your router, you can grab high gain antennae for it and you should see a dramatic increase in range...

SOURCE: Yamaha RX-V663 Multi-zone question.

i just got the same receiver like few days ago im still leaning it too,it is a very nice receiver though. here is some settings to help you.
check this to make sure zone 2 is showing in the menu,
on remote
menu,basic setup, speaker set,extra should show zone 2 it might show zone b...presence...or none needs set on zone 2 hit the left a-e/cat button it is weird the right doesnt circle all around? i had to call crutchfield tech for that one(GREAT COMPANY!)so that is for the setting to make sure zone 2 is set up now some to adjust the volume.
menu, manual,options,zone 2 set. here you can set 2 features
max volume( the loudest it will play) inti vol(the volume that it will play at when it is turned on) the yamaha has alot of quirks to it but has a very nice sound. for second zone features and a easier receiver to set up i have onkyo and they are very easy to set up zone 2 olume and everything on the front panel. hope you dont have to try to program a universal remote to work it seems yamaha uses discrete codes that are impossible to find i tried one universal and can only get very basic features to work.
hope this helps you out,

In fringe areas; where signal strength is too weak, this should happen. It sounds that, you're using an Ariel booster along with a splitter. Just connect one TV at a time, without using the splitter. If picture break occurs even this time, adjust the the signal strength of the booster [either low or high], and check whether it can help you. Keep in mind, iv the signal strength is too low, or set to too high, this fault will happen, as AGC [automatic Gain Control] circuit inside the set won't function properly. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

My 2 tv's have weak or no signal. So cannot be individual tv. I have a booster so am presuming booster needs replacing. Tv's worked previously. Any ideas?

This is an old question but it is still relevant. If the problem is
WIFI related make sure you check compatibility of security settings. Some TVs will not work well with the higher router security settings which will create a random disconnect problem. There are also DNS settings you can set manually that can help but you will need to contact Samsung for the correct numbers. If the problem is hard wire cable signal and inline boosters you will need to contact your provider. The inline boosters do fail and need replacing. It can also be a problem outside your home is a nearby distribution hub. If you are at the end of the line everything that is not working quite right will affect your signal.

When I hook my dish up to the satelite connection on the outside. I don't get any signal on the inside

Are you connection to the satellite input on the outside of the coach or the park cable input? If you are connecting to the park cable input it will not work since that wire is connected to a booster/splitter. Try running the wire through the window directly from the dish to the receiver. If that works then you need to install a dedicated satellite connection from the outside to the inside or purchase a flatwire to run through the window. If it does not work then the issue is in your satellite settings.

Picture breaks up/freezes weak signal message,

Constantly? Once in a while? If it does it without ever working, it sounds like the tuner is bad. I would not try servicing anything inside the TV. They're just not made for that anymore. I did it for 20 years. You could connect an external antenna, doing the scan, and see it if works that way to rule out a cable problem, or having the cable co. check the dBmv level.

Water inside the board

First, this router is probably toast. You could try drying the router out with silica gel or similar, else just replace it. This router goes for around $30 or less nowadays.

If you have nowhere else to put a router than outside where it will be subjected to the elements, then you need to get a weatherproofed box to put the router in. I would recommend keeping the router inside away from the elements. If you have signal problems, you may wish to try out a Wireless Signal Booster.

Just bought a house and moved in. I have plug the TV into the wall antenna socket and the TV comes up with the message 'weak or no signal' what could be the problem?

Hi, congratulation on your new house!

The problem is obviously from your antenna. The TV is not recieving any reception from the antenna and that is why it is displaying 'weak or no signal'.

Cross check your antenna connection and make sure the antenna wire is intact.

Also, most antenna's come with a booster. The booster makes reception from the antenna very strong and the TV would be clear.

Lastly, is this a new antenna or were you using it in your old house?

Please give me a feed back.

Yours sincerely.
