Dave:

For Freeview, your signal strength should never be 100%! It is better if it is between 60% and 80% but with quality as high as possible. On Freeview, a strength of 100% is almost certain to give picture and sound problems as it is too strong.

Freesat does not come from the Belmont transmitter but from a group of satellites in geo-stationery orbit above the Equator, roughly over East Africa. A dish is required for such reception, so I assume from your post that you have a dish and suitable Freesat receiver. Again, 100% signal strength is not ideal and is very rare, but the quality should be as high as possible (noting that a stronger signal may actually reduce the quality!).

dave : If everything you have said preceding - "on freeview i got break up all the time" - is referring to Freesat signal levels? then variation in levels between channels is quite normal, as jumping about satellite channels not only involves receiving signals broadcast on different polarities but also from different transponders, i.e: the satellite equivalent of transmitter.

As far as your box freezing etc, if the previously mentioned "is" applicable i.e: Freesat, although the signal levels given are perfectly OK, try observing one of the channels for at least a minute or so watching for any signs of intermittent dips in quality, as this can result in intermittent freezing of the picture / audio squeaks etc, if evident? then the problem could be caused by a less than perfect fitting of the "F" connector at each end of the coax.

Another possible reason, being that the satellite dish has been positioned where it doesn't have a completely clear view of the S/SE skyline and is being intermittently obstructed by tree foliage etc. (usually shows up more on windy days)

That said, some Freesat boxes (Bush / Goodmans etc) have a reputation for glitching for no apparent reason, maybe you could mention the brand you happen to be using?

If you have no satellite signal, see Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'

If you have other problems, please provide a full (not partial) postcode (or preferably enter it in box at the top right) and indicate where if aerial is on the roof, in the loft or elsewhere.
