Hello, I've recently been having problems with my freesat set up. I have two freesat boxes connected to the same satellite dish, some channels are weak or missing but not necessarily the same on both boxes. I've checked the cable connections both ends and that the dish hasn't moved, and thoughts?

it sounds like the dish has moved, if both are experiencing problems.
The differences between them may be down to the age of them, or electronics inside. Some tuners are just better than others.

do you have a satellite signal strength meter, or are you just using the inbuilt one in the set top box?

Maybe not the dish itself, but the LNB on the end of the arm has moved?

I've been using the inbuilt meter but I do have strength meter, the dish is a bit rusty could this be the problem?
