somethings a little strange with the tuner 1-2 levels. Is this connected using an ext splitter between the TA and the Ceton or is it using the TA's passthru connection?
There should not be a 10 dB change in signal levels...I think your S/n is good however
Splitter should be marked 5-1000 mhz or higher, all f cables should have a shiny copper center wire extending 1/8" above their nuts...
grounding block outside the house sand connectors should be shiny and ground wire must be connected to the electric and phone common ground rod. There must be no extra dead splitter ports or dead coax cables...
I can see an issue arising if this is using either a bad external splitter and no 75 ohm load resistor on the empty output f connector on the TA.
What are you doing to get a "without TA" reading?
Are ch's 2 and 5 NTSC analog or are they QAM?
can you get a sig level from a ch in the 7-13 range? (it's possible there's none on your system)
To check your processor loading, let the windows resource monitor run, if it's solid green (at100%) you're going to have issues, it may be a problem with the stupid end of XP support and windows defender eating up your memory.

Thank you for the advice. I have posted on the green button.
Here are the results I took this morning with and without the tuning adaptor
SL 1.7 without -8 with TA
SNR 39.0 w/o 37.1 with TA
SL 1.8 w/o -8.1 with
SNR 39.5 w/o 37.9 with
SL 5.7 w/o -4.7 with
SNR 39.4 w/o 39.4 with
SL 8.5 w/o -2.2 with
SNR 38.6 w/o 39 with

FYI, Ceton ticket discussions cannot be viewed by others. It is unclear as to whether or not you have followed through with *all* of their requests and suggestions as trivial as they may *seem* to you. The 6Eth can be very particular about network hardware, drivers and configuration.
For more direct interaction and discussion with Ceton users and often their personel, go to:

I just put in a new graphics card. I still have the same trouble. I Also tried it on another computer. Still the same issue.

no, need some levels from either.
You're going to need to grab levels for a low channel a mid and a high one.. Like 2, 7, 50

No one here can do that.We're all customers like you.
Go into the Diags/ signal level page,
copy and paste the rx level and BER (s/n) here
are you on TWC internet? if so, copy and paste the signal page from 192.168.100.1 or 192.168.0.1
here as well
Should point to a problem
