    Default Is Signal Strength Guaging Same in all Receivers????

    I have a question for all users especially experts,
    Is Signal Strength guaging same in all types receivers?
    I mean if signal of one frequency/channel is 60% in one type of receivers, will it show same % in all type of receivers (on same dish/place?)
    I have neosat which always indicates less % of signals of almost all channels as compared to supermax / starsat etc. The picture is fine and there is now skipping, however.
    Please comment.

    Every STB is having its own criteria to indicate the signal strength

    different STB use different algorithm to reflect the signal. Technosat 555 displays 90% most of the time, whereas if you put that on metabox, it is considerably lower. the only way to measure a bit accurately the signal is to use digital satellite finder/meters which measures the actual signal strenght in decibels.

    @ boknoy

    i thought Humax5400 was good too in terms of signal reception and tuner sensitivity, i was proved wrong when i bought the Manhattan Plaza ST 550. believe me im amazed with the results of this Manhattan.

    transponders on some satellites like Thaicom and AsiaSat3s that gave me "No or Bad Signal" on Humax, give me 54% signal on Manhattan, same dish same setup, same LNB etc.

    regards
    STB info:
    Humax5400 with ****** FREECAM 2-019, Coship, Manhattan Plaza ST550 PVR with 80GB Maxtor Quickview HDD.
    Dish Info:
    HotBird,NileSat;ArabSat;Panamsat-10,AsiaSat3s
