- My Satellite Setup
- 80cm fixed dish, dual LNB's, Echostar 616
- My Location
- Essex, UK
I have a twin lnb set up on an 80cm dish, the main arm lnb pointing at Hotbird and the second one on a standoff bracket pointing at Astra 28.2E. I set everything up about 3 weeks ago and have been having problems with Astra ever since. Thinking that maybe because of the offset on the Astra lnb the roof of my house was affecting the signal, on Monday this week I moved the dish up the pole by about 18" and now there is no doubt that it is in clear air! However, I set everything up on the strongest transponder and though all was OK. The next day I get the "no signal" message on some of the channels - notably BBC1, 2, 3 and 4, ITV 1 and 2 etc. I go into the set up menu and find another transponder with the strongest signal and bingo, I have all the channels again. The next day will be the same story, search again for the strongest transponder. Strongest quality I have seen is 80% with 60% signal strength. What I haven't done though is write down which transponders I have used. Any ideas what is going on here please?
