Satellite tv problem?
All channels received through a specific transponder appear pixelated?
I'd like to know why,and if there is something i can do to rectify this issue?
It's also affected by the time of day seemingly as the evening passes, the issue is far less noticeable, then after dawn the cycle repeats itself ,also other channels from the same satellite but on a different transponder have no issues

You may have to realign or move the dish. Is there a tree branch partially blocking it?

Yes, of course You Can Do It Yourself ---
if you have arms that are thousands of miles long
so they can reach out and shake the errant satellite.
In other words, you can't do anything about it.

Contact the provider. They are not being decoded.

maybe you have the minimum signal level for this transponder.
is the LOS ok? a line from the dish center toward the sat.
no wall? no tree?
if yes, you need to use a larger dish
note1 .. higher relative humidity attenuates more the signal....
how much is the RH in your area?
note2 ... check the transponder frequency .. if it is on the higher part of the band (12.5 ghz or more) ... maybe the bad coax attenuates this signal more ... the sun uv damages it .. if yes, replace it

It just means your dish has been moved slightly out of alignment. You need to go into the settings and pull up the signal meter and go outside and re-aim it. If you are not comfortable with doing it yourself you can call dish\directv and they will send someone out.
