I'm in Leeds and I able to obtain a a reasonably strong signal on 10E on my 90cm dish. When I have an 80cm dish, I was still able to get a good signal. You may have a dish alignment problem or else you might have a tree (or something similar) in the way.

Yes it does make a difference, a 100cm dish will noticably outperform an 80cm.

Iwol - you need to remember that feeds are:
1) only there when needed - join a feeds group to find whats active when
2) often transmitted at much lower power than normal broadcasts due to split frequency transponder use (several frequencies are normally being transmitted off a single transponder)
