With the strong winds in Wellington tonight I am getting picture breakup on SkyHD and a T100 message saying something about atmospheric conditions. Funny thing is that the picture on a Freeview via the same Sateilitte dish is fine. Anyone know why this would be. I would have thought if it was due to atmospheric issues it would affect both.

The tuner in the Freeview unit might be more sensitive so not drop out before the Sky one.

Other thing LNBFs have hotspots on some frequencys they just perform better. In the old day the LNB would come with a sticker on it with a plotted test printed on it showing maximum gains at certain freqs.
