    Default DM 500 pixelation Gemini 4.2 or the tuner?

    As the title says. Pixelates every 10-15mins, ever so slight using cccam 2.0.5 and tried 2.0.0. but never did it with Gemini 3.1 with 2.0.0 or 2.0.4.

    Now I did try to watch the tennis on Aurora/GWN earlier and it was pixelating badly while it was raining. I turned on the trusty strong and perfect pic. Maybe these clones don't have very good tuners?

    depends on the tuner in your clone and the tuner driver in the image.
    in the early days there were some issues with alps and philips drivers.

    Most likely your CS causing the fault.

    things seemed ok last night. I was talking to a mate and he said over the w'end that he was getting pixelation as well and he's on Gem 4.1 so it may be atmospheric conditions. Like I mentioned above the tuner is not as sensitive as the strong so this may make sense.
    CS has been fine for weeks so I don't think it's this.
