    Default Faulty Diseq?


    I have noticed that lately, the signal strength from my sats has dropped to 28%. (I get a stable picture with 28+ signal strength). Before, I used to get it around 54%. The satellites I am catching are Badr, Nilesat, HB and AS3s. All the sats give same level of signals.

    I feel that the common components for all these sats are cable and the diseq. I rule out the receiver as I get the same phenomenon with my SS2 also. For the time being, I am suspecting that the diseq may be the culprit. Before I go out and buy a new one, I need the opinion of experts in this regard.

    Any suggestions

    Bypass the Diseqc and make sure. Who knows the cable might be bad.

    just as lnb mentions above, try straight cable
    without diseqc and see what happens
    by elimination.

    and also try to change the cable port from diseqc switch . sometimes some of the ports gets corrupted. i dont know what type of diseqc you are using , but hope it is 4way in and 1 out.
