Wonder why I am now seeing so many BER (although picture quality seems 
fine). We have new aerial (approx 1yr old), which is correctly aligned. 
We are at least 60 miles away from the transmitter in the flatlands of 
Cheshire. We have a splitter box (not on the aerial) to divide the 
aerial into 4 feeds to our tuner cards. Unfortunately, this doesn't give 
any info as to its amplification and it's non adjustable.

Somewhere I have a two way splitter with adjustable gain. I'll try this 
out and see if the BER drops.
