I have a Sky+ box which I have moved to another position in the room. This involved lengthening the twin cable. I also fitted a twin outlet box on the wall so I have introduced four new connectors (at two joints) but I have now got it working OK with a "good" signal.
Whilst checking all the connections I looked at those at the dish and I found that the two outer connectors (of the four) are in use.
Using "Services" menu 4,6 the signals are shown as bars. Input one has strength/quality about 50/70% and signal 2 about 40/50%. Both are marked "Good". Are these values OK and if not how can I improve them?
Would it be worth trying other outputs on the dish?
Would it be worth replacing the cable run with a single length cable?
This Friday, assuming that i get a following wind, I should be getting Sky+ HD.
Will these signal strengths be satisfactory for the Sky+ HD box?

Re: Sky+ signals
Leave as it is, its working at good enough. The indicators within settings are just that an indicator and not a true reading.
The only way to find out if its at max is use a quality meter at the dish and you may improve the quality by changing the feeds to the other outputs on the LNB.
Trial and error.
