Peaking satellite dishes
I have a Dish300 (pointed at 61.5) with a DP Dual LNB output to a Dish500 with a DPP Twin. I've noticed that my signal strengths are not what they used to be and I'm getting occasional picture breakups on clear days. I'd like to try to repeak the dishes but I'm not sure what I would need.
I used to do all of my own installs but I'm guessing I've forgotten a lot.
Are those cheap satellite single meters on ebay helpful? I'm guessing it would be OK for the 61.5 dish since it's a single sat location but I'm not sure about the 110/119 slots. Would I just hook the meter to the 119 side of the LNB and peak it, and then peak the 110 and bounce back and forth between the 2 until they were both where I wanted them?
Is there an easier way outside of hiring someone? My receiver is nowhere near the dishes so using the receiver's point-dish screen isn't going to work.
Thanks for any insight!
