I'm new to the satellite scene. I had glorystar installed a year ago and it has worked great since. However, the lawn mowing guys must have bumped into it because quality dropped to 0 on all the channels. I tried realigning it and get get 80+ quality on a few channels like Hope, 3ABN, LLBN and a few others but the rest I can get little (15-20) or 0 quality. What am I doing wrong? If they are all coming from Galaxy 19, why do some work but not others?

First make sure the dish is straight by pulling two strings across the face, one horizontal and the other vertical. They should just touch each other. When you stand behind the dish - aim it slightly to the Left from where it is now aimed for 3ABN (106), this will lower the signal slightly for the Adventist channels but raise it for the other channels. You need to balance channels 901, 106, and 113 to get the whole package.
