    Hi, If I look at the signal test I have signal strength at 100% but signal quality as 0% but I still have a good picture etc. What should I fiddle with to improve signal quality.

    Thanks

    Fiddling is what I do best. Went up the ladder, turned LMB 5 deg at a time clockwise (looking at dish) with the wife at the other end shouting better worse etc then back again.It appeared that a 10 deg clockwise change was required and the reading went from 0% quality up to 66% quality all the time. Oh I also gave the cable a bit more slack at the LMB so that the angle of cable into the LMB was smoother. Look I am not saying this is how to fix all quality problems but this is how I fixed mine. Regards

    Quality is more important than strength. Have you noticed any difference in the pictures since you changed it ? At 0% quality, your box must have been doing a lot of error correction

    I have a 20 year old TV so its hard to say but I think it looks better. I need to watch over the next few days to see that it does not have the odd line break up as it has over the last couple of weeks.

    Wow a 20 year old Tv, sounds like one of those prizes you see on Bullseye on challenge TV.
    Big curvy screen. Does it have a dodgy wooden exterior too, black plastic grills on the speakers?
