Hi I live on the east coast of Engand nr Skegness my Ski digi system has worked fine for 18 months but now looses channels to weather conditions The channels that go include ch4, e4 all MTV and VH1 channels, Nick Jr, CNX, Travel ch, Sky prem4 to name a few. Sky call it adverse weather conditions but it only takes a drizzle of rain to affect these channels. I've checked the wires ect. Its always rainning here on the coast would I be better of getting a larger dish? If so which one? Just a quick point to mention I am surrounded by open fields so there's nothing getting in the way either.
Any Ideas??

If it was working fine for the length of time you say, then it probably just needs the dish tweaking, a bigger dish will always improve picture stability, but the signal from 28.2 East is pretty robust to start off with. What size dish do you have at the moment, is it a 43cm minidish or a Zone II 65cm?

Thanks I'm using the minidish that came with the box looking at the signal strenth its only about halfway across and the quality is half of that. Any tips on moving the dish?
