I just recently bought an FTA satellite from Glorystar. It Came with a Geosat dish and the HDVR3500. After setting everything up I am getting 75% signal strength and 85% quality strength. My question is there a way to increase the quality strength? I have LNB pushed back away from the dish, would sliding this forward help or should I try to adjust the angle and direction more? Also I had to use about 30-40' of RG59 cable that was already in the attic and wall, would replacing this with RG6 do anything? This was my first sat to put up and i know nothing about this. Thanks in advanced.

Welcome to SatelliteGuys Lstewart!
Yes, if that is what you are getting you have it "pegged" out. You are not going to get any better than that.
I know what is going on, you are shooting for the 100 you see on the screen, but this is not exactly a scale of 0-100.
It it is a relative indication from the BER reading. 85Q is great!

Thanks guys I will leave it alone.

This FTA satellites business is interesting. I never even knew it existed till a few weeks ago. I am wanting to try to find an old dish and play around with so I will have more questions in the future. I have been search the web like crazy getting different ideas so hopefully I can find another dish so I don't have to experiment with the one I have.
