    Hi, I have the sony digibox and a 1.3m dish and I'm living in greece.
    In the evenings there is too much disruption in the signal to watch Cahannel4.
    What can I do besides moving back home. Can a bigger dish improve the signal?
    The other channels don't have the same problems, so I don't think its the orientation of the dish.
    I hope there's a solution its driving me mad :mad:

    Marc, I live in Southern Germany and we sometimes get problems with a few channels during storms, etc. It seems to only happen on some channels, so I'm making the assumption that the affected channels are on lower-power transponders that are unable to 'punch through' the atmospheric disturbances. Maybe C4 is one of those? You have to understand also that you're at the very limit of the Sky footprint down there, so maybe a bigger dish would help pull in the weaker signals?

    koa,
    Thanks for helping.

    So I am right in thinking that a bigger dish would get a better signal. For some reason the technician I feel is reluctant to install a bigger dish.

    Marc :confused:
