    I tried to tune to a movie on 535 and found a lot of pixelation using one of my HR24s. Have seen some of this on a couple of other stations but can't remember which ones. I decided to do a Satellite check for signal strength and found all of them in the high 80s, 90s, and 100 except one, Satellite 103ca. Transponder strengths were as follows:

    1-8 na na na na na na na na
    9-16 79 80 83 80 77 78 81 83
    17-24 79 79 84 85 80 83 86 86
    25-32 na na na na na na na na

    I live in Salt lake City, Utah, is it possible that 535 is on this Satellite?

    Thanks for anyone's help!!

    535 is Encore E which is on D12@103w or 103(ca) on TPN19 for HD
    or for SD it is on D8@101w on TPN21

    Any snow or rain that may be causing your problem? Or I have even seen that if a dish is not locked down real tight that even a strong wind can cause problems.

    Thanks for the response, I really appreciate it!! No Snow or rain, could be that it has become a little loose from the winter winds. I'm just thinking it may need a tweeking. I think those numbers on 103ca are low every other Satellite is great!!

    Yea they are just a little low. I just checked mine and I got

    9-16 95 96 95 97 95 96 95 97
    17-24 95 95 96 96 95 96 96 99

    Now I live in SW Florida so I don't get snow or cold problems, and haven't had that much wind. By the way I had DTV install the dish on this house because it was free, but I went and re-alinged the dish after he left and got about 2 or 3 more points out of it. He didn't do that great a job on the Ka signals.
