    Default Signal Booster


    Hi,

    I have weired problem, my dishtv signal getting low in the evening from 7 to 11 pm - and can't watch some channels properly. Is there any signal booster for receiver?, is it helpful?, my local technician says a signal booster or signal switch can boost the signal when the signal drops down - Does anybody have real experience?

    kindly advise

    bigger disk might help, but signal booster as our m8 have said it helps only if you have a very long or cheap kind of cable drop & the signal noise is also amplified!

    There are booster for 3.4ghz and above are available but it is not needed in this case. As told by Khan2ton these boosters increase the noise also. So bigger dish might help. Also try to optimise your dish when the signal level is low.

    hello friend ..there are boosters avaliable and that can amplifire the signal from 950-2250mhz as this is the IF frequency but i don't think this will help you . as these boosters are neede for long run .


    you will need a big dish .

    Hi Shakin,
    Try and do as lnb15k suggests and try to peak your dish when your signal quality is low.
    With your reception diminishing at such hours, I'm wondering whether you might be a victim of terrestrial interference. Maybe something starts up every night that interferes with the frequency of the channel you're trying to watch.

    i dunno where you are, but you should have your dishtv receiver's tuner tweaked for better reception.

    and of course, a bigger dish is much better.

    nothing beats a high quality lnb... even on a big dish if u have a crap lnb then a smaller dish with better lnb still wins...
