When I installed my Sat-C LNB a couple of weeks ago, I had signals in the low 80's for the 3 transponders. I haven't yet subscribed to Showtime so I can't comment on picture quality.
My DST-3000 is also a bit touchy concerning signal strength(but I don't have another STB to compare to). In my case, it's too strong a signal. I pick up OTA from Sacramento, and the CBS feed used to break up quite often but ABC, NBC, FOX were all OK. All 4 stations had signal stengths pegged @ 100. I put a RS variable attenuator in line and adjusted the signals to ~90. It helped a lot, but the CBS signal still can drop out from time to time. I'm still a little perplexed as to why. I may try to 'mis-align' the antenna a bit.
