I have a sidecar, last week suddenly there was a drop in signal quality,
about 10 - 20 in many channels. I adjusted the dish and skew to the best,
but the problem remains.
In the analog side now I have some sparkles.
Is there a kind of lnb failure which explains this?

Uniden 4400 super
905 sidecar
LNB Pansat 17 K digital read 8 years old
10 ft dish
Guadalajara, Mexico

How are your even/odd channels on analog?

Can you give some specific examples?

Maybe your polar motor is sticking? Maybe you have a hornet's nest
inside throat of feed horn?

Good answer new sun,

also, the hot weather can effect LNB performance.

Well yes, but "Pedro" should have been well aware of this angle.

Actually, I suspect heat affects the incoming sat-signal more so than
LNB; get a bigger dish, and your problems go away.

In other words, I think there is a sales myth [lie] about heat effects
on LNBs; if you have a decent LNB, don't buy a new one.
