No is not weird etlam
If you eliminate noise, electromagnetic interference , white noise, spurious emissions through those premium LNB, because that what they do. They tend to ALSO eliminate low power TP
But also these "premium" LNB are very sensitive to alimnent, a just simple 3/64 inches AKA 1 milimiter makes a HUGE difference.
I am surrounded of "radio garbage" 4 Military radars, three 4 LTE towers each one 5 providers each.
Common LNB It did work, BUT the signal fluctuates.
Titanium solved that problem, but was more difficult to me to adjust it, why? I can say it in easy words.. it like it "narrows the beams" make it more difficult to align it, so just a minimum adjustment it can make you loose 1 or more TP usually those with low power
It Happened to me on 55.5W. in less than 1 minutes I got the Sat, 2 to 3 min to supposedly perfect alignment. Scanned and wow! 95% Signal and most of the TP's 74 to 85 % quality, then I realized through a friend I did not get the Fox and FX from Argentina and Chile, go figure! I didn't even touched the LNB screws just forced a little bit and Voila ! That TP Showed up!
But The problem FOR ME that when I align the LNB I have to go facing the dish with a ladder so, I am not skinny, though I am taking 1/4 of the dish, hence the signal drops or because of refraction goes up! giving me false readings.
That is the reason I invested on downconverter block PLL LNB. So I can adjust in Ku Band then C Band is done
