Can't scan all the channels on 87w
A few months ago, I was able to scan the rtv, tuff, and others on 87w with no problem. Lately, I can's get them to scan. I have a 12' Paraeclipse dish (well tuned), and a s10 openbox. I've tried "tweaking" the tp's up and down from 3920 and still don't have any luck. What am I doing wrong? Toonsescat

Probably nothing. I had a Q reading too low to lock when the TP first went up but later absolutely nothing. Tweaked dish and feed to no improvement. Been nothing ever since. Everything else on the satellite works great, just not this one. Was a thread on this a while ago. @ 137W RTV mux comes in just fine.
One night I walked home very late and fell asleep in somebody's satellite dish.My dreams were showing up on TV's all over the world. -- Steven Wright
Openbox S9, Pansat 3500SD, 139w to 55.5W +30W
10Ft USS Steel BUD and an assortment of ChannelMaster dishes, (1)84e, (2).7m, (2)1.2m,(1)1.0M, (1)2.4m[8ft] offset in storage.
The Rtv stuff I get ok but it's more difficult. I took tv and receiver outside on a sunny day and tweaked away. Its locked at 70%
When they first changed over, I couldn't get signal on 87W, but it's strong now andI didn't do any reaiming.
