    I re-scanned it the last night, total count is about 40 (Fortec prime 6'), a lot of them on the same transponder (16). Few nice channels; english movies and shows with spanish subtitles.
    I will try to re-align my LNB this evening, maybe a fine-tunning will make the difference. Many channels still show some low signal there, I have a new satfinder that is working really good.

    That matches my observation in central Pennsylvania, with the caveat that I haven't had the chance to scan it on a clear dry day yet.

    Looking at the latest keps, satmex5 has already drifted to its new slot so I hope to see some stuff lit up on that soon unless satmex is just going to incline orbit it and not used it much (a-la the flying trashcan SD2).
    What slot would that be?
    Dish 1000.4 Eastern Arc dish, Hopper With Sling, Onkyo 606 receiver, Samsung 46" LCD
    GeoSatPro 90cm dish, Sadoun PowerTech DG-280 motor, DMS Avenger PLL321S-2 LNBF, Amiko Alien 2 receiver
