In this Astro box New Installation Settings guide, I’m providing step-by-step instructions to re-setup your decoder after you’ve done messing up the settings or something just goes wrong.
In case all the settings go hay-wired intentionally or accidentally, you can always reset or restore the decoder to its factory settings. Read how to reset or restore factory settings Astro decoder for all model.
These are the very basic settings when you installed the new Astro decoder. This is usually done by Astro technicians every time they install a new satellite dish and decoder at your house.

Astro Signal Strength vs Quality
By right the highest is the best. However, in most cases, the reading is more than 70% for Signal Strength and more than 90% for Signal Quality.
The higher the reading, the lesser you’ll see the love message from Astro “Service currently not available” on your TV screen. But, you’ll still see it when there is heavy rain.
If I missed out something, let me know in the comment. These are just the basic steps.
