I recently noticed a definite degrade in the quality of my picture. Any show with dark backgrounds are very noisy -pixelation/blocking. You can't see the noise in bright scenes but it's there with the effect being a "softer picture". I checked the sigal strength on my HR-34. Three of the 5 satellites were fine with probably a 96 average. These are the number for:
103 (s)- transponders #1-6 = 0, 93, 0, 75, 0, 0 #9 = 16
#17 -24 = 82, 73, 0, 19, 99, 96, 78, 68

99 (s) - transponders #1-6 = 67, 78, 77, 80, 0, 32 #9 =99
#17-24 = 94, 91, 100, 100, 79, 86, 94, 89

Is this a problem? If so what's the fix?
Thanks, Rick

Transponders that end in S are spot beams. Don't worry about them.
Since I see at least one 99 or 100 for each one, you are likely fine.

The ones you really care about are 103ca and 103cb and 99c.

The signal strenth has nothing to do with the quality of your picture so its not possible to have a "softer picture" with low signal. The picture would look absolutly the same whether the signal was 60 or 95. You need to look elsewhere for your problem.

What I meant by "softer" image is that the noise resulted in loss of detail in the lighter images. Where in the dark images you actually see the noise.
My TV is a Sharp LC-80LE844U. I've had it for about a month. The HR34 is connected via HDMI through a Yamaha RX-A2000 receiver. I've already tried connecting directly to the TV with no difference in quality/noise level. I can't see as much noise in the other TV's but I'm comparing 80" vs 55".
Here are a few examples:

Microphone Blue Jaw Gesture Music


Eye Dog Jaw Carnivore Dog breed
