Signal strength isn't what you think it is.  Signal strength is the strength
of the electrical signal between the card and the LNB, *not* an indication
of quality of the signal.  More helpful for this is SNR (Signal to Noise
Ratio) and Bit Error.  Low SNR or high bit error means bad quality signal.
 Repoint the dish.
