That isn't working here, apparently because of the Theme I selected.
I'll further my journey into learning basic programming with the line
John suggested. :)

Thought of that; really hate to because whenever its windy and watching
a weaker station as if it excessively pixellates/looses the signal for
more than a bit the Backend can lock up. The good news is it doesn't
have the lock up issue when recording -- I'll get some psychedelic video
at times, which truncates the recording time to sometimes almost nil.
As I mentioned in my first reply to Mike, I did replace two short coax
runs from the 4x splitter to the three tuner inputs. Hopefully that was
