    Hi again, On the signal test page I am getting 80% on signal strength but a total no show on signal quality. Does this indicate anything specific to you ? ( other than I'm a prat). Pacebox 2500B.

    Re: Signal

    the signal on the test page measures on frequency and one freqency only - 11778 V 27.5 2/3
    this is on the north beam of one of the satellites and this siganl varies during the day - in my area that is around late afternoon early evening. if you are getting the EPG backgroundmusic then you will have some strenght and quality - as the music is on 11778, as is all the EPG programme data. if you could vewi this screen at the same time as watching Sky News then both bars would be off the scale as sky nes is on a very strong signal;

    the reception of 11778 depends on
    dish size
    LNB skew (rotation)
    digibox - some digiboxes just do not like this frequency.
