I am using a 76cm dish and a Coolsat 5000 receiver, most of the day bio and history are running 95% signal quality, as night approaches the quality begins to drop and at its low is around 68%. This has not been enough to cause pixelation, but if there is even a slight shower or heavy cloud cover I loose signal.

Isn't 101W the bird with the odd skew? If so has anyone tried adjusting the lnb slightly to see if the quality greatly improves when the level drops at night? I wonder if the satellite has a slight wobble to the orbit and this particular transponder is skewed more than the others? Just a quess, think I might test this theory out tonight when I notice the quality dropping.

Well that mux is 75-76% quality right now, up from 66-67% last night. The signal is noticeably stronger on the BLSA. I forgot there was a 1500 sample limit on my overnight scan so it overwrote the info before I stopped it.

I'll attach the BLSA output from just before noon PDT to my previous post so they are more easily compared by flipping back and forth.

Guys post reports when it goes bad, time etc. A maximum point of the day is good but without the weakest time also it don't help. What's weird is I'm seeing different down peaks times in different parts of the country. This just becomes more of a mystery :confused:

I start noticeable fall off at 5pm CST and come back up by 2am in NE Illinois.

My Setup#2 just started doing the "Coolsat bounce" (goes from 87%-70%-87%).

Love these CS 6Ks but they sure have a wacky Q meter. ;)

Just got back home and checked quality. Pretty solid 66% right now. Threshold of 63 or so. Video is solid.
