5LNB Slimline Dish Pointing
Help! I just installed a new 5LNB slimline dish and I am having some strange problems with pointing. The dish is pole mounted on the ground. I used the Accutrac 22 Pro meter as indicated in the manual and the SolidSignal video. First I set the dish using the coordinates indicated on my TVio DVR receiver and then used the meter (per instructions) to fine tune it. Locked everything down, hooked the four coax feeds from the dish to the zinwell multiswitch, and then hooked up the receiver. To my dismay, the receiver indicates some odd results. For the 101 bird, the receiver acquires the signal with 89/87 readings on tuner 1 and 2 for transponder 32 and 30. It gets 92/92 for transponder 28...and nothing on all the other transponders. For the 110 bird, I get 95/94 for transponder 8, 98/98 for 12, and 95/95 for 10. For the 119 bird, I get nothing.
I am hoping that somebody out there knows what this means... I have good line of sight (no trees). The pole sits next to the building, so I may have some reflection, but the line of sight looks good. I have RG6 Quad shield installed from the dish to the receiver. I have repointed the dish twice with the same results, and I have even taken the receiver and TV out to the dish and hooked it up directly to the feed from the integrated multiswitch on the LNB assembly. I have replaced the coax connectors, just in case...
The only other odd thing is that the TVio receiver only has options for 1, 2, and 3 LNB setups. I choose the oval dish with three LNBs even though my dish is actually a 5LNB model.
