Hi he will make sure all the connections are tight and pushed in fully, then he will connect a meter to your box and check the signal levels and if necessary go to the head end box outside (the green box) that serves your property and ajust your levels.Regards Micky

Re: V6 SIGNAL PERSON COMING TODAY

So your TV service is delivered from a street cabinet up to a couple of streets away, through underground cables to a wall socket on your outside wall, then internally to your TV box. If you have signal problems, then somewhere along that cable run there is a fault. The tech will want to run a series of tests along the route of the cable, so from the back of the TV box, the wall socket and then potentially in the street.

After a couple of checks on the box itself, they will probably start by removing the cable from the back of your TV box to quickly prove whether the box is at fault. So yes, be prepared for the tech to want access behind the TV box and at the wall socket.
