How to clear the GOTV E48-32 error (Searching for Signal) - Keslar - 04-19-2017

It could get rather frustrating when the E48-32 error pops up while watching your favorite TV show. On several occasions, I'd threatened to stop using GOTV because it just kept coming up at annoying intervals, until I figured out how to fix it.

See, when you get the E48-32 error, it means there's a signal detection issue. You would get a lot of this when its raining or very windy. It could also point at an issue with your cable connection. When you get the E48-32 error, just wait it out and your signal should be back up on its own. If the error persists for over 3 minutes then the first thing you want to do is check your signal strength.

How to check GOTV signal strength

Adjusting the antenna cable

In my case, the GOTV decoder isn't connected directly to the Antenna, it's connected into a wall socket which is in turn connected to the outdoor antenna. This setup is pretty neat so my interior isn't defaced by visible wiring. Here's a picture of my setup below

Now, when I got the Error E48-32, I checked my Signal Strength and it was at a disappointing 30%

On adjusting my cable, it shot up to 70%, error gone. With more adjustment, I could get 100% quality and over 90% signal strength.

The frequent error E48-32 was as a result of poor positioning of the internal cable on my path. Packing the cable properly and shortening the length helped reduced the occurrence of this error only to times of bad weather. This could also be caused by poor antenna positioning
