    Shakin, this happens due to day / night temperature difference. The LNB osccillation varies on this account. In my case (I watch tv through a DVB-PC card), I usually readjust channel frequency in late evening by a fraction (say, from 11474000 to 11474500 or 11473500) & I get a better signal. If you are using a receiver which can scan transponders not with fixed frequencies but with digitally variable values, then I would suggest that you re-scan the satellite in the hour of the day/night when you watch tv most.

    What band of LNB are you using,If it is C-band look for the place that you can hide the dish from microwave interference,or install another dish for nightime,he he he Just kidding

    above model is fine, but not necessary to find same brand as long Digital Sat Finder you'll be OK, or if you have a ltittle Idea how to go to the right position, folow steps:

    a) Go to your receiver and look for the signal quality or what ever.
    b) if you're not using a positioner, you gotta go to your roof and bring all your stuff (such as: s/s TV, tuned to your receiver or A/V cable, your receiver and sat. cable (short) with both ends with connector on it.
    c) turn on your TV & receiver, if you able to watch any channel on that sat you are in.
    d) try to go to the menu & follow a)
    e) try to loosen a little the 2 knots that holds the horizontal direction of the dish and same with vertical direction too.
    f) after doing e) at this time you can move your dish with your bare hands easily.
    g) try to move slowly horizontal way while you look the signal bar indicator on your TV, & freeze
    h) if you saw the red bar indicator to the most.
    i) temporary tightend the 2 horizontal knot where the most of the red bar indicator.
    i) now try to swing so slow the vertical way of the dish and do same procedure h). & i)
    j) if everything goes well, tighten up all knots back to avoid loosing them.

    hope it will help you

    Hi,

    Thanks for the information, I have tried in the night & evening sessions with different brand same size dish and also with a different LNB but the results are same, also tried the option of "Mr.Elcath" .

    Currently using 120cm Ku band dish.

    Can anyone tell is it worth using a 180cm KuBand(OFFSAT) dish to stable the signal? Will the signal stable on 180CM?

    Please advise - all the experts, Thanks in advance.

    @Elcath,

    I did that twice even with different LNB and Dish.

    How about a 180CM Kuband OFFSAT dish - is there any improvement in signal?

    First of all, I don't know the **** print of that sat in your area if weak or strong, 2nd try to ask firends about the signal they could get from that sat. if signal of that sat is strong from others, then check the main post of the dish, use level & it must be level from all angle of the main post. if signal is weak i guess you have to increase size of dish or if you are using fiber dish try to shift to aluminimum dish defenitely it will help you.

    Dear,

    I did check with my friend - they are able to receive with 120CM, but in mine the channels on a particular TP is not OK in the night time(signal varies to 52-55) but in the day time it is OK(signal varies to 59-62).
    I am ready to buy 180CM dish, if I can fix the signal level in the night time(signal to atleast 60).

    It happens only in the evening to midnight 5PM to 1AM - the picture quality is not at all ok.

    Will it really improve the signal quality on 180CM dish? - please advise.
