    Hi, anyone point me in the right direction with this one...

    Over the last couple of months we have started to get picture breakup / pixellation. It comes and goes and can go for a week with no probs then it comes back. When we are suffering the problem it seems to go away if i switch to a premium channel - Sky movies / Sky sports etc... BBC / ITV / Cbeebies etc are badly affected.

    We have swapped the LNB / checked alignment etc. and all is well. Signal strength is 100% / Signal Quality is about 75% and stays at 75% even when the picture is breaking up

    How do i go about getting to the bottom of this one?

    Try a friends digibox on your setup and use yours on his.
    That should tell you if digibox itself is the problem or if it's related to the dish setup.


    Make a full list of the channels affected and then compare it to the transponder/satellite lists, there may very well be a connection.

    Lyngsat

    If you are losing just the ITV and BBC channels it could be that the dish while being spot on for the channels on 2A, 2B and Eurobird is weak for channels on 2D.
    It was a very common problem for systems that were installed before 2D became active and since ITV and BBC started broadcasting from there.
