You may need to zero the dish and start again with your satellite positions, some firmware updates destroy the dish settings.

There should be a command in the motor setup menu to send the dish to a reference point, or zero.

Should be no need to do that, you simple need to set the motor to zero and then find the satellites again, if that is the problem.

im really not familiar with the technical side of these things. how do i set the motor to zero. i have looked on my receiver menu but there is nothing as such. and i dont understand why i get a good signal and a bad quality reception.

You probably get a signal but no quality, because you are on the wrong satellite, which satellite did you leave the receiver on before you flashed the software?
