Here is a dumb idea that I have actually seen cause problems :

Is it possible that the declination of the satellite from your location is the same as the Sun right now ? That will cause up to several hours of interruption every mid-day. The clue is that the shadow of the receiver box is in the center of the dish (for prime focus mounts). 

You might be surprised how many times this has caught people, so I thought I would mention it.
