Thanks for the reply Simon.

I think the dish is a 2.7 and we live in Pissouri.

I think you misunderstood the term realign.The dish certainly does not need rotating,its fixed to point exactly to the satellite thousands of miles away up in space. And you don't need hefty men ,just a good satellite technician with the right tools and a sat meter.

If your CH4 and BBC are weak it could be either your dish has moved off alignment a bit(centimetres) from strong winds,or the LNB needs replacing (the gadget in front of the dish where the cable goes in). Other factors are spiders in the feedhorn(you would lose BBC) ,damaged cable or a faulty digibox.

What size is your dish and where in Cyprus are you ?
