    I have a bell 24" dish and a very similar LNBF, that size dish almost picks up G19; borderline at best. It will take very precise fine tuning and a clear day. At sea level with all the moisture in the air it may not work... but if you do get it to work you will have had some good experience and will find setting up a larger dish a cakewalk.

    I use the 24' dish as a birdbath now.

    I have an 18'' dish setup here that I slapped a LNB onto and torture myself with once in a while, so far I've been able to lock transponders but never have gotten a watchable picture. It may be destined to become a birdbath.

    Agree on both points. Skew needs to be the opposite direction. And it, dish size, may be a bit small. 22 inch is only ~56cm

    looks to be in the 44dbw area where they are recommending a 95 to 120cm dish.
    Satbeams says a 90Cm for 44dbw area.

    Give it another try with the dish rotated the other direction of shown in pic 3 tho. (I would)
    maybe try these transponders: 97.0 W (Galaxy 19) 11929 V 22000 (V) or 11967 H 22000 (V)

    Hey guys, I tried adjusting the skew in the other direction, but still nothing. I am wondering if the problem is because it is an offset dish. I know that it is small..yes.. but I do get signal strength of 53%, but the quality is 0%. I am just wondering if maybe, I tried putting the lnb arm at the mid-point and then try rigging the lnb a different way so that it is held on by the head and then try rotating that. Any suggestions???? Do you think that will work??

    Personally, I think the dish is too small and only the strongest transponders will come in and they will be extremely difficult to lock. Try finding a 90cm dish that is used for SKY or other service. If you have mounted the LNBF in the same position and angle as the original LNBF, then yo are in the ballpark. Moving the LNBF position without first getting a satellite signal will only further complicate!

    Is the mounting post plumb and level? Are you making slow sweeping movements left and right then increasing/decreasing the dish elevation 1 degree then slow sweeping left and right then increase/decrease the dish elevation 1 degree then slow sweeping left and right... repeating until signal quality reading apears then optimized? The elevation marks may not be exact or the post not PERFECTLY plumb. Your searching motions will be like slowly painting the sky in the direction of the satellite position.

    Well, yes I did all of that, so I guess then that it is the dish size. So I will try to see if I can get a bigger one. Thanks guys for all the help. I really appreciate it.
