Hello, I have a 90 cm (approximately). During the evening, channels on specific frequencies start to broadcast blurry. Everything else during the evening is OK, and during the day all the frequencies work perfectly.

Blurry is not normally a problem with reception, but a problem with very low broadcast quality. Perhaps in the evenings the broadcaster is trying to fit too many into the multiplex and picture quality is suffering.

It is only happening to me, I asked other people and they are not facing such problem.

Can you upload a photo or two of the problem?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

An indication of which channels and what satellite may help, but I notice you are in the M.E., the cold desert nights may be the problem, it may be the dew is very heavy causing attenuation enough to give those channels fringe reception, or perhaps the night sprinklers are set too high saturating the dish and lnb.

hello,
it depends on what blury means.
if you have small squares on fast moving or flashing images that is due to low bit rate.
some receivers can cope with this and some can not.
squares are not blury.your friend may have a better recever or bigger dish or better LNB on the dish.
you should take your receiver to your friends house and see if the problem is still there.
if your receiver works on then see what size his dish is and lnb type.
if your receiver has the same problem on your friends system then the receiver is of low quality and is causing your problem.
