Two things spring to mind:

1) a bigger dish has a narrower acceptance ange, so pointing direction is much more critical.

2) its possible you are now supplying your receiver with too much signal and saturating the tuner.

You can ignore the strength meter - it doesnt tell you anything useful - it will give you a high reading even if you point the dish at the floor. You want the quality reading - thats the meaningful one.

The only reference I can find to transmission changes in September is this:

CNBC Europe has changed its European distribution satellite as of 12th September 2004 for all non-BSKYB digital viewers. To achieve this, the English language Pan European programming on Astra Digital Satellite at 19.2° on Freq 12.610 GHz Transponder 112 ceased transmission at 14.00 CET on September 13th 2004.

A new service in Digital is available on the Astra 1E Satellite at 19.2 East on Freq 11.597 GHz. Transponder 26.

Viewers receiving CNBC Europe via the Astra 2C Analogue (10.729 GHz) service will not be affected by this change.


which was for changes in digital transmissions last year.
