    I find that the MeTV signal is a bit stronger, slightly to the west. With my 6 footer, I can get 103w, the ION channels, but it also picks up MeTV. Now, when I go after THIS TV, it's stronger, slightly east. If I go to 99.2w, I can usually snag THIS TV also. I can't explain the wide variance between the two transponders, on the same bird.

    MEtv 1 and 2 also show up on 99w 3374 h 5924 . stacked lnb, so u will need to blindscan 99 to find the right tp.
    the q is 50 and 99w is one of my lnb's on a dish where 91w is centered. 3 lnb's on the same dish.
    mods please strike if this post isnt allowed, and my apoligies

    you're getting bleedover on 99W. The TP is on 101

    I know when I had the 6 footer up I could get both 99W (the strong TP's) and Me and This with the dish peaked for Me & This

    I wondered how the OTA station was getting the signal last night because it was fine, yet I had nothing on the fta box-it just drained of signal in about 20seconds while I watched it. If ThisTV and Me are on the same polarity, I can't figure out how I lost it, when This was still a strong signal.
