New versions of the Nickelodeon channels seem to have appeared on 28.2, Although the signal strength seems good (compared to other channels), they are breaking up. I thought it may be my DECT phone but turning it off has no effect (other channels that can be effected by the phone are having no problems) Does anybody have any ideas?

Thanks

Thanks for the info. Does anybody know why would be breaking up even with a decent signal strength? is it a clash with other channels?

Eurobird's footprint is biased towards the west so will be weaker in central Med.

Thanks for the reply. I still do not totally understand. (apologies for my lack of knowledge). I know snr readings from Dbox are not always the best guide. but for every other channel the mark is 25%, 24% Snr reading or under is when a channel starts to break up. These nick channels are reading at around 33-35%.

Didn't they move to one of the Astra North beam transponders?

In that case the footprint is therefore biased away from the Med towards the north!
