Hi, to all. This is my first post here so forgive me if this is the wrong section. Admins, feel free to move this post to a more appropriate section.

To my problem.
I live in London and have a Sky minidish with a sky Quad LNB that I have purchased recently from Amazon.co.uk. Also I have a clone Dreambox 500 conected to this setup which I am using this to watch Freesat.
My SNR shows 91%, AGC 90% and Ber 0%, which I would think makes for a pretty strong reception. However, I get those horrible horizontal black lines made of cubes (I don' know their techical name) quite often, even in a good weather. This ruins the whole experience for me.

Can somebody help me with fixing this problem?

Is the dish too small, or is the LNB not good enough, or is it maybe the receiver?

As far as dish alignment is concerned I have used a dish meter and I can't get a higher reading than the one I have.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers.

Firstly please confirm you are in London - your profile puts you in Kosovo! If you are in london then please correct your profile - its important for technical questions

I just noticed something else.
When I use Ngrab, the recording is flawless, even though the live show was not. :confused:confused
Also while watching, appart from pixelation, the audio is not very clear, but in the recordings, it is fine. :confused:confused

Anybody else experienced this?
