    Poor sat reception is usually one of three things....
    1....Not properly aimed at the satellite, just enough to get a signal but not fine tuned. A fraction left or right, up or down will improve it
    2...Sat receiver is cheap, poor quality tat and not selective enough.
    3....poor installation of system/cabling etc...badly fitted plugs etc.

    Regular tv aerial needs to point EXACTLY at the local mast...a little off will give a poor or no signal.
    It also needs the correct polorisation...horizontal or vertical depending on the transmitter mast.
