Sorry for the wrong advice you got. Probably you got in touch with a 
frequency collector. If this people see a signal and identify the logo, they 
will call it "reception". The EIRP for EDTV (directed to the US) is only 30 
dB and this means for a clear sky C/N of 9 dB: 5 meters.
My advice is to invest in a second 90cm dish for EUTELSAT-HOTBIRD and switch 
between the two satellites.
