Do I have sufficient signal from the satellite?

My install was completed Saturday evening. There is only 15 feet of
RG-6 between the dish and the receiver. Satellite signal power is 61
but the satellite signal quality is about 31. Is the quality
sufficient? If not, should I try a 30" dish? Maybe the receiver is
getting too much signal. I was noticing some dropouts of the NFL
Network. I then repeaked the dish with an inline satellite meter. I didn't notice any more drops on NFL Net. My Dish 6000 was reporting a 61.5 signal strength of 103 before and 113 after peaking.

I guess I should try repeaking using the Tune Satellite screen. The number reported there is the satellite signal quality reported on System Status screen 3.

Thanks for the help.
