All complaint, no information.

you could have a bad lnb, a poorly aligned satellite dish or some other problem.

Have you reported your problems to Dish?

What is msg 015b, an error message?

If you don't have a Hopper 1,2 or 3 then the only thing you can have is a WALLY. Now what dish do you have 1000.2 east or Western Arc? Self install or professionally installed? How old is this install?

Schedule a service call. That error code could be the result of any number of things (bad receiver, bad LNBF, bad cable, weather, misaligned dish etc.).

Well best way to fix it is the pressure way, you must put the menu on the signal of one of your birds then being behind your dish, hold both hands on either side, put light pressure to the left with both hands, ask someone to monitor the TV you should be on speakerphone, ask did it go worse or better do the same on the other side, and the same top and bottom

DO NOT MOVE DISH BUT ONCE YOU KNOW WHICH WHY IT GETS BETTER to TAKE A BLACK MARKER AND MARK EVERYTHING THING THAT CAN TURN SO YOU CAN GO BACK and now move the dish very very tiny in the direction you put good pressure then repeat until it does NOT improve anymore NOW REPEAT ON THE OTHER BIRDS
