I assume you are using a 60cm dish.. any less will result in more than a few sparklies on your picture and is not really recommended for analogue reception.

Are you SURE the channels are tuned into the right frequencies? Double check them here

The channels shouldn't be THAT poor, but some of the channels you have mentioned (ie. MTV, CNN) are some of the very weakest channels and will almost always have sparklies unless you have an 80cm dish aligned exactly. Most people can live with a few sparklies...

Different channels ARE on different "satellites?" and transponders, even though they are at the same point in space, some are weaker than others (MTV being one of the weakest, Arte/Bayern Alpha being one of the strongest)

You could have a particularly sensetive reciever like the Pace Prima, which unfortunately "distorts" the image if the signal is a bit on the weak side. This is annoying, all that can fix this is getting a better signal, going digital or getting a different analogue box.
