Hi I Cant Help Because I Have Not Got As Far As You? Can I Ask A Question. Could You Have Got The Strength Checked Before Installation? Is The Strength Going To Stay The Same Always? Are You Hoping There Is Some Kind Of Booster?

There is, but you can't boost what isn't there... :)
(but they're usually used in long cable runs rather than because of insufficient dish size)
