Can I manually adjust Dish roof antenna to increase signal from 66 on a clear day to higher signal.
On cloudy days signal is 34 and I get a lot of video clips.
I had my roof replaced and contractor had to move dish antenna. I asked them if my signal will be affected and was told they do thus all the time with no client complaints.
This antenna replacement with optimum results doesn't make sense to me.
Any thoughts?
PS: I know I can call Dish to send tech out but like to get input before doing anything.

This is a post that should have been placed in the DISH support forum rather than the Satellite Guys support forum.

To answer your question, 66 is a pretty good signal level so don't expect a lot more.
On cloudy days signal is 34 and I get a lot of video clips.
That's not good but we need to know more about your definition of "cloudy".

If the clouds in the direction the dish is pointing are black, then 34 may be the best you can hope for.

"Video clips" isn't the terminology that you were looking for. That would be either dropouts or pixellation.
