Silicone grease also lubricated frequently-switched gold or silver plated contacts, and low voltage signal level module contacts. Silicone grease was also used directly on high voltage CRT anode connectors to prevent or reduce corona. My second experience was in the CATV industry.
I suspect a poor F connector - it is a frequent setup problem as the HDR-1000S only checks during initial setup. You will need to refit the F connectors - these need to make an electrical connection and they should be tight if the correct size for the cable was used. Here is a helpful page - Ignore the silicone grease on the internal connection.
It’s really personal preference. Crimped connectors will be the most reliable (provided they are done correctly) and the strongest connector (vs. pull) but it requires specific tooling for crimping and stripping the cable and connector. Compr...
Anybody got a good contact in the Chania area (south west) that does the sort of repair and set-up that Graeme Cook used to do, i.e. knows how to set up a Sky dish.
My own dish has screw on f-plugs and a blob of silicone grease, never any problems over the last two years. Perfect reception. Amalgamating tape on a single or twin lnb is fine, but try it on a quad to wrap each output separately and I guarantee you will be ready to commit murder in a short time.
Dear Cid, Thanks for the advice. We previously had a feed with the dual to the kitchen but never used it. With the olympics coming up there will be competition with the children as to what we watch and so I wanted to set a TV up in the kitchen.

Sparky, the grease alluded to is silicone grease which is like---grease, & helps you create excellent F-Plug connections. Do not be tempted to use ordinary grease for this work. It is also available from Satcure.co.uk who could also provide with the correct size of F-Plug if you quote the exact outside diameter of your cable.

Satcure recommend you push the prepared end into silicone grease and then screw on the f connector. If you have 4 connections to make, tape can be awkward I use lnb boots (slide them over the cable before fitting the f connector.

I already have silicone grease so more won't be needed but thanks, anyway. It's an interesting possible solution which hadn't occurred to me (nor anyone else I'd asked) but it'd make me nervous to try it. Maybe I'm being a bit dense but, before I start spreading thin coats of grease everywhere, what, exactly, do you mean by 'contacts'?
