Some change since previous post:

Signal quality on MUX39 now 10% Power 25%

All other muxes between 35% and 46% power all quality at 100%

Alternate cable run tried (we have it permanent plumbed in now) and other household box tried with very similar readings (Humax PVR's)

Attempt to use an amp raising power to 60-70% on all muxes keeps quality at 100% but quality on mux 39 (618Mhz)
causes power to go to 50% and quality zero
(Suggesting very poor xmit quality of signal in first place)

Same symptoms using rooftop, loft, and indoor RLPA-(amplified) aerials (i.e. no better signal from outside than indoor - perhaps 1-2% flickering at a pinch)

No issues at all over xmas - and of course olympics were perfect on every channel. must be coincidence .... once again.
