      Have you tryed a force update, last time I tryed that when the signal was low it brought it back up again.
      I wouldn't try a forced update on any box which has signal quality problems, because the update may not be received properly, or it might take forever to be received.

      It could be dish alignment, or it could equally be a bad LNB or faulty cables, but if it was the latter, it would probably only affect one input.

      Re: High Strength but Low Quality signal?

      I have a Thompson Sky+ box and have to have a dish in the garden due the telephone exchange building next door having its mast in my way ...the problem is, recently builders have put up scaffolding in my "window" of signal around this building. At first nothing changed so I didn't say anything, then I lost channel 4 and Film 4 totally. Last week, suddenly, I lost everything except BBC1 - 101, BBC2 and ITV1. Sky1 just jumps about and is totally unwatchable - hence I've missed the grand finale of 24 :-(
      I have Signal strength of up to half way but quality comes & goes randomly.
      What is different?
      The scaffolding is up for at least 15 weeks and they wont move it!!
      Aargh!

      Perhaps I should post this as a new thread?
