For the past few weeks I've been lucky to get a usable signal from G10R for even a few hours per day. Nothing changed with my setup in some time before then (Winegard DS2076 dish, Fortec Star quad-output LNB, two Coolsat 5000s and one Geosat Pro PVR). A couple of days ago, while I was getting a usable signal, I re-aimed the dish in case wind had somehow knocked it slightly out of alignment; a few hours later, I was back to a blank screen with occasional pixellation.
I'm in the Rochester, NY area and we're getting into winter weather here. Is the weather change just showing me the limits of what I can do with a 76 cm dish, or is there something else I can do? Thanks for any advice.
If at all possible, increase the size of the antenna. I would not use anything smaller than one meter for FTA. And since G10R is so low in the sky, check to see if trees are in the signal path. Good luck.
