I've just installed a motor and can pick up channels on all satellites from 28.5E to 30.0W no problem. On 16.0E I can't get BBC Prime on 11554V, I get a 66% signal strenght but 0% quality, although on the same satellite I get 11449H at 77% strength 73% quality and 12563V at 62% strength 53% quality.

Do you think I need to adjust the dish, because I'm getting good quality 90%+ on some sats and seem to have a pretty good arc, I don't want to cock it up if I don't need to.

Any help, cheers.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Welcome to the forum mark2006

11554V 30000 7/8 71% strength 100% FTA quality here perhaps your stb has problems with non regular sr and fec rates?
Ah if you are using a sky digibox then that explains it.... you cannot set the SR to what you need

Do you have a dect phone in the house? If so unplug the base unit and take the batteries out of the handset - that frequency is close to the known problem area they can cause.

You also need to realise this transponder is to scramble on March 14th. :D

Cheers, no I did'nt know it was gonna be scrambled, thats saved me some trouble. Also could you tell me if its possible to recieve channels on 19.2E which have no sr or fec rates, with a dvb reciever.

If they do not list any symbol rates, then they are probably analogue.
