Definately can be the cable or the connectors, I posted a while back last year, that I helped a friend last fall install his 4221.
I told him do all the wiring before I reach his house. I would go on to his roof and mount and align the antenna.
I made the cable connection at the antenna and he the 3 other connectors. He did the one going to the ground block and from the ground block to the receiver.
Standing on his roof I can clearly see the CN Tower and I pointed the antenna 15-20' east of the Cn tower.
The max signal I could get on all the locals was about 8 bars. All I could get was Cbs @23 and Fox @4 to 5 bars and Pbs at 5-6 bars.
No matter how I moved the antenna the Buffalo stations would not come in any stronger. I knew the cable run was not a problem he was running about 40'.
I noticed that the cable connector at the receiver was not right. I held the cable and wiggle it a little and Fox jumped to a steady 8 on the receiver. All the locals went to 10.
I quickly recrimped that connector and told him to replace all those other ones outside he did.
