Or What is the difference between signal strength and signal quality?

Signal Intensity (Signal Level or Signal Strength) -

Still not getting signal intensity? :

Then there may be issues with your hardware like -
Wire Problem -
Check all the wire for a cut or any damage between DTH antenna to the set-top box. If you think that you wire has been damaged or it is too old then you can replace it.
