As many have mentioned on this board I am getting a low signal strength on my locals. My locals are Cleveland located on Sb 31. Strength comes in at 40 for a few seconds then out for a few seconds. Currently using a dual legacy. will a different lnb increase strength? How about a superdish instead of 500? Thanks for your input as I am a beginner.

if you are only getting 40, one of several things are wrong, dish is pointed incorrectly (most likely) lnb is bad, cabling and accesories are bad, or receiver is bad. you should be able to maintain anywhere between 85-120 for signal, so try repointing first than try other alternatives

Ok

Tried a different dual lnb already, tried a different receiver already, can't seem to find better strength, so can a bad connection cause trouble on only one transponder?

Check your signals on all even TPs and on the odds TPs. If the signal is low on all the even TPs, most likely the problem is the cable or connectors. If it's only one TPs, do you have another receiver where you can check the signal?

I am close to Pittsburgh and have Cleveland locals. They recently moved to Sb31 anyone have a map to see if that is a narrow beam that may not reach Pittsburgh now? Would I get strength 40 in and out in such a situation?
