    Combo box has two leads coming in from the splitter. One seems to be for the saorview function and the other the satellite.

    Noticed recently that satellite connector cable is a bit loose and some channels will not appear. I tightened the connector but it still seems a bit random.

    Q. Should the braid on the outer side of the co-ax cable be in contact with the outer side of the co-ax plug or are they supposed to be isolated from each other ?

    Braid should be in contact with the metal part of the f-connector but separated from the inner core wire. Lots of videos online showing you how to make the connection.

    Missing channels could also mean a retune is required.
