I have some satellite knowledge, but obviously not enough: I live in southern europe and have a 1.8 channel master. I have tried various LNB's on my dish and found the best signal I can. Now the trickey bit.

I have rotated the lnb 90 degrees, which improves the signal strength for the channels i'm looking for. On a panasonic digi box I have added ITV and BBC, but where they are Vertical i have had to change them to Horizontal and visa versa. This has allowed me to add them into other channels, but when i try to select these, from other channels, i get the 'no signal? message. any ideas?

There should be no advantage at all in twisting the LNb a full 90 degrees, unless there is something wrong with one of the polarities.

Adjusting Skew should help though.

So you need a new lnb.
