Does anyone have any problems getting ESPN Classic, AMC 10, 400? I have had problems from day one, lots of tiling and intermittent signals. I have tried bumping the dish, setting and resetting the polarity. I am getting a good signal quality. For example, today I have bright sunshine, not a cloud in the sky and a signal quality of 98 and the reception is poor. Any ideas?:confused: Also I have came across an ESPN Classic signal on G(X)4, 400, but it says no subscription. When I called NPS to see if it had changed satellites and needed to be activated they told me that they noticed that feed also, but didn't know anything about it and that the AMC 10 feed was the one that was authorized......:confused:

My signal quality is in the 80's and the picture is fine. I had some problems in the past and found that my feedhorn was not centered on the dish. I attached cables on the dish at three points and hooked the other end around the outer ring of the scalar ring with small turnbuckles and cranked it (be careful that you don't put any more pressure on the dish than you must) to the center. I was working on Ku band reception but it did improve all the C band stuff as well, including C4 - 400. It seems that a quality of 98 should be very good. If I have more than 20 it is very watchable. I have a 10 ft dish, buttonhook assembly.

Thanks for the tips guys. I don't have any problems with any of the other digitals, that's what I couldn't figure out. With the signal at 98 there shouldn't be anything wrong with this one.
