With the 75E, we lose signal strength infrequently because the skies are cloudless. Except for FoxHD where heavy cloud in the evening can cause trouble.

Many people replace the Sky Satellite service with *C and just need to replace the LNB on their 60cm dish. You only get SD and one satellite. I replaced it with the dual 75cm dish because I wanted HD.
