My Satellite Setup
Receiver: GigaBlue UHD Quad 4K
LNB: Dur-Line Wideband
Dish: Televes 120cm offset pointed to Astra1 and Astra2
My Location
47.7N, 10.3E, Kempten, S. Germany
A minor update:

Signal is still weak on ITV HD but managed to get rid of the pixel noise which also disturbed my reception on Astra1.

Being new to Unicable, turned out my satellite connection socket was wrong. Being an end socket it needs 8db attenuation (I learned) but I only had a standard socket with 1dB attenuation. After changing it plus adding another 20db attenuation I got rid of the noise and now have no problems receiving BBC HD 24/7. ITV HD is occasionally ok in the evening, but clearly I need a bigger dish.

Quest HD and BBC HD are on 2E whilst Quest +1 is on 2F. Fringe reception = there is a difference in signal strength between these birds during the day.
