We do mostly EA installs in our area but in one dma we can use either. I wasted a bunch of time on an install the other day and figured it was worth a post. I used to peak on the 129 since it was the weakest of the three on WA installs. The other day I kept having issues with a H3 install. On 110 channels the pic would pixelate, then it lost the 100 all together. Checked signal at the switch and it was showing mid 50s. Still wouldn't see it on check switch. Grabbed another hopper, same thing. I rerun coax and replace hub, same thing. I finally decide to peak on the 110 and got the signal up to 70....lost a little on the 129 but at this point I don't really care. Problem solved. For whatever reason the H3s have to have a really strong 110 or it won't function correctly.
