Now that we have determined that one receiver is causing this issue try one or more of the following:

1. Ground (earth) each of the 4 coax cables before entering the homes.
2. Try another brand of quad LNBF
3. Merge the four outputs of the Quad LNBF into a powered 4x4 multi-switch (as a buffer) then distribute to the four receivers
4. Replace receiver with another brand or model
5. Disconnect the receiver that is causing the problem and install a separate dish
6. Swap cables on the four ports of the LNBF

yes someone always puts his tv on at that time and i have now found out that when he turns his tv off the others come back on,...what do you mean by amp overload and return loss problem and what should i do...thanks

I'll PM you a nice link that has a great tutorial on cabling, amplifiers , overloading lnbs and return loss. It should give you a good idea where to look. Return loss relates to what could be described as echo. There are signal "echos" that travel back in the cabling. High quality devices absorb the echo. You want high return loss ( absorb the echo). Open connections are one example of something that can create this problem.

One day the neighbor tells me that his tv has had steady intermittent cycling interference for months, like there was a welder running somewhere close by. He had checked with all the neighbors and no such thing. So after a bad fish experience, we get rid of our really little aquarium with it's little electric tube heater and his interference stopped. We said nothing.
