    Is it possible by means of an amplifier to boost the signal strength?

    The signal quality I am getting is pretty good at >80% for both feeds, but signal strength runs at around 50-55% and I get some break up occasionally.

    Any remedies to suggest?

    Don't think so - check dish alignment > upgrade LNB > get bigger dish, in that order.

    Signal boosting not possible other than what Ivan points out.

    Get bigger dish.

    Thanks its an apartment block complex, so I guess would need them to check the dish, and I assume it would be one of a substantial size / lnb setup.

    They recently just upgraded the down the line equipment so it should provide better strength than this.

    I'll buzz them and see.

    Thx guys. Steve.
