Doubt its your receiver, could be corroded coax, how long has it been since you replaced it?

More then likely. Check for critters in the feedhorn.

Some other things to check, the polorizer might be messed up, are you getting both odd and even channels? You can check by going to G4 and verify analog reception of channel 16 (religious channel) and channel 17 (most of the time a test pattern). If you can't I would check the polorizer. People say you can use a dish without a feedhorn throat cover, but after having wasps building nests and ruining my old feedhorn, I like to have one.

Wide variations in signal quality suggest a mobile source of TI. Especially if you find everything is clean in your system. Radar, aircraft, & police are often sources as well as neighbors and their activities.

Check the wireless frequencies and if it looks suspicious shut it off for a bit and see what happens.
