When my tech installed my dish 1000 he used a meter that was powered by the 622 and would pick the strongest siginal from a sat for peaking. I asked him why he didn;t have a self powered meter and peak in the weakest transponder with it. Installers: here is the answer I got. 'That meter is too expensive and it doesn;t make any difference what transponder you peak in on it will align the same. Do you guys that install, agree with this statement. The strongest he could get on 129 transponder 22 was 59%. Dish techs tell me that is too weak and the tech asked me how could he get it any better. I told him that was his problem and not mine. He got mad packed up his gear and left. Any time it rains I loose home and garden which I watch much.
