I would say that it was due to weather conditions, but i do need to get onto the roof and realign it because 75% Signal Strength is not that great.

What's the quality at? or BER?

I don't pay a lot of attention to signal strength. I have a decoder that only gets a small 50% signal strength from the LNB due to a long coax lead with multiple taps and a cheap decoder. The decode quality is still 98% which is the main thing.

Some receivers show different signal strength depending on LNB strength, cable, splitters etc... and receive sensitivity of the decoder. The BER and quality is the main thing.
