Just for info, signal "quality" is (usually!) derived from the Viterbi inner convolution stage, basically, it shows how hard the error correction is working to "clean up" a corrupt signal.

So, if quality is low, that means the received signal's very corrupt (indepedently of strength, high strength should also mean good quality, but not necessarily!), so received bit errors are high, and the viterbi decoding is working unusally hard!.

It shouldn't have anything to do with the actual symbol rate, since the sig/noise ratio of a satellite channel is fixed by transponder power, and modulation method (always QPSK).

Usually, this would mean an interferring signal, maybe the lnb polarisation's off, or just possibly rf interfernce from another source?

The reason this S/R thing got started was that I was trying to ascertain that you were actually on 1W and not just thinking that you were.

Try a full scan of Thor with your box, are you getting a signal on all or most of the transponders listed for 1W on your reciever or just some of them ??

In which case, Llew, Technomate's "signal quality" is somewhat different from the usual meaning, common to other DTT and sat box makers ....(added) Sorry, I should have said "Lancelot" not "Llew", must try reading what's in front of me, huh?!

Good.

That'll be why then. The S/R was wrong for the signal you were recieving because you were pointing at the wrong sat.

Seen it before. You'll be fine now :-righton

You will also need to lift the elevation of the dish to receive Thor.

i just cannot understand the sat/compass giving the wrong reading i brought it to help it has made it worst.so if i set the motor and dish to thor will that be ok or will i have to set the motor south i have not got a compass so i will just have to guess a couple of taps with the hammer left should be fine.:rolleyes:
