I have a question.. is higher signal strength more important than how many Transponders you are picking up? I really don't know much about this system but was wondering and messing around with the signal meters and hit the "+" and changed the satellite to 110 degrees and my signal strength went from 70% to 97%... can I change that?? My frickin brother in law just bumped my dish and it's off a bit on signal strength but picture is still good.. Tuner 1 roughly 70%-75% strength and Tuner 2 below 65% on average.. What should I or can I do here?? It's sunday.. football is on and nobody is available for a service call!!

The higher the signal the better. However, not all satellites are created equal.

To analyze your situation better, please post the strengths for all satellites and each TP.

It would seem that your dish needs to be realigned.
