Hello I have freesat from sky .
My signal is perfect in dry weahter.
But whenever it rains even light rain my hd channels break up.
However all SD channels are fine unless it's very heavy rain it has to be heavy to affect SD but only light to affect HD .
I know rain always affects satellite signals but why does it affect hd easier and every time it rains .
It doesn't go off air just keeps breaking up every few seconds . Especially itv hd .
I've tried a few different boxes all the same .
My signal levels are 78% signal 90% quality .
I have a sky mini dish fitted with 1 wire to my sky box .
The faces a sky with no trees in the way but does face near a wall but the wall is quite few feet off .

Ok I see if that's the case though maybe the minidish should be abolished and people have bigger dishes fit by standard. Sky didn't install my minidish I paid for it 185 only last year .
I am so disappointed. But thanks for telling me the problem do you think in future they'll make a better dish by standard there's not much point in only been able to watch tv in good weahter most the time in good weahter you want to get out .
I've known other people have simlier problems with the mini dish I'm quite far south as well I'd hate to think how it would work in say Newcastle or blackpool.
At some point I'd like to get a dish that can get me channels from Germany and Europe as well as uk sat but at the moment finance isn't great so maybe then if then ill get a bigger dish . Is it possible to get a dish that will pick up all german and English channels and play them on the same box like a sky box or freesat box .

Thank you for thr information.
So if I needed 2 dishes under 90cm for german and uk channels would that be ok without planning permission.
As we don't have a aerial at all expect for one in the loft .
I'd like to get a second dish for german tv and see if someone will remove the sky dish and replace with a 80cm dish as well as a 80 cm dish will that work I have a sat tuner built in my tv not freesat just a non epg kind .
I am located in Brixworth Northamptonshire .
Also if I were to get the German channels would the box show german epg or just now and next ?
