    Anyone have any advice? I've got the 5 LNB dish and I just swapped my HR10-250 for an HR20. On the 110 and 119 satellites my signal strength is in the mid to high 90s. On the 101 satellite, my signal strength is in the low to mid 60s.

    These lower readings on 101 are causing those channels to sometimes stutter and freeze. Why would I get high 90s on 2 of the 3 sats and 60s on the other? I've checked all the connections and the position of the dish appears to be correct. Am I overlooking something? Thanks for any help.

    Those 101 readings should certainly be higher. Are these readings low on all of your DirecTV Receivers & DVRs, or just the HR20?

    Could be a bad lnb or bad aiming.

    I'd check the alignment first. The tilt/skew could be slightly off.
