Does anyone else have low signal quality and sometimes glitching in heavy rain on digi tv @ 1 west.
Telenor is perfect and most of upc, apart from some romanian transponders.

To be honest nearly all transponders on digi tv.

I am now getting on my dreambox 500s - snr from 87 - 91% on different transponders and agc around 94% give or take on different transponders, ber- 0.

But with heavy rain i get some glitching, all other sats are good, maybe if its really heavy rain mbc's on 26e will glitch to.
But are the digi tv transponders a little too week for me to pick them up any better here in ireland.

I can only guess that your dish is either too small or misaligned on 1W.. or maybe some water ingress in the cable but unlikely if other satellites are unaffected. 26E is weak here and any sign of rain generally reduces signal to unwatchable levels on my Penta 85.

UPC/Focus/Digi TV transponders here are pretty much the strongest on that cluster of satellites with the weakest channels being Canal+ HD channels.

Everything is sealed 100%.

I am using a 1.2 channel master.
When i alligned the dish i alligned using the strongest transponders, then fine tuned the weaker ones, so im sure its alligned 100%.
I especially fine tuned on the digitv transponders and got as much as i could.
Maybe the 1.2 is'nt big enough for digitv.
