My problem is not the bad reception quality. At the moment roubles start,
I've a non zero BER values.
The problem is that other channels, which worked previously, now don't work anymore.
A search in the archive lead me to the thread: Air/SkyStar2 IRQ stop (partial) fix 

Is it possible that we/I have this problem again ?
