I have tried to set up my own satellite system to receive hotbird 13e and astra19.2e using a monoblock LNB. The sat box I am using is a Technomate 1500, the main problem I am having is getting channels with a good strength on the quality and strength bars. The highest signal strength I get with astra is 50% but is constantly jumping between 45%-50% and the highest I can get on hotbird is 30%-40%. I understand that this figure should always be around 70% at the least even if you are not picking up a satellite signal, have you any ideas on how to improve this? And if this improves is it likely the signal quality will improve aswell because I am looking to receive the Art Sports channels and the quality is in and around 38-40%. Thanks for your help.
