    Dreambox driving me nuts

    Hi, to all. This is my first post here so forgive me if this is the wrong section. Admins, feel free to move this post to a more appropriate section.

    To my problem.
    I live in London and have a Sky minidish with a sky Quad LNB that I have purchased recently from Amazon.co.uk. Also I have a clone Dreambox 500 conected to this setup which I am using this to watch Freesat.
    My SNR shows 91%, AGC 90% and Ber 0%, which I would think makes for a pretty strong reception. However, I get pixelation quite often, even in a good weather. This ruins the whole experience for me.

    The funny thing is that when I use Ngrab, the recording is flawless, even though the live show was not.
    Also while watching, appart from pixelation, the audio is not very clear, but in the recordings, it is fine.

    Anybody else experienced this?

    Is the dish too small, or is the LNB not good enough, or is it maybe the receiver?

    As far as dish alignment is concerned I have used a dish meter and I can't get a higher reading than the one I have.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers.

    I am using Nabilosat Darkstar II Exclusive CCcam 2.1.2 Mod Borsalino, but I have also tried enigma, and Jade images with the same results.
    I used highest quality cable and it is quite short, only 5m.
    Dish size is 60cm.

    No. It is not the connection between the TV and dreambox. That connection is analogue whereas the pixelation is a digital artefact. In any case, I checked with another TV and it was the same.

    Any other ideas?
