I am in MA and using 811. Usually my signal strength on the 110 bird is ~60-70% (depends on the transponder), (I almost always get > 100% on 119 bird).
Now I am losing programming broadcast on the higher transponders (16 and above) on 110 (for example some Starz and TMC channels) if the weather is a little bad (cloudy). If I go to the setup and see the signal strengh (e.g transponder 18 on 110), it then shows about 45-50%. Is this how it is supposed to be or something is messed up?

When the dish was first installed, I remember, 110 used to show about 80-90%. Then, once my dish got de-aligned because of strong wind (about 4 months back), and I had to pay $99.00 to dish to send an installer to fix it (The dish is on the roof and I can't reach it. I did not check the signal strength on 110, 'cause I did not have any programming on 110 back at that time.

Sorry for the long post but what should I do now? :confused:

first check the "RG6"connectors that you can reach , make sure they clean and tight
then get a "freind" with a ladder to check the other "RG6" connectors and then peak
the signal.
Or get the warranty plan that covers these problems
