    Retrofit DirecTV dish for OrbyTV?

    I took the reflector and LNB and mounting arm off my DirecTV dish mount. Then mounted the reflector , LNB and mounting arm provided with the Orby install kit right on the (nicely adjustable) DirecTV mount. Everything was a bolt on replacement except for maybe having to drill out the mounting arm...

    Weak Orby signal in Central NY?

    Thank you to all who took the time to assist me. I have solved my problem. Based on the general consensus being that I was just a little off on aiming, had an obstructed signal path or coax issue, I took a look at my install once again.

    Weak Orby signal in Central NY?

    Hi. Thanks for the input. Yes I have done a direct line to the receiver but no difference. Plus I use a signal meter at the dish with the same disappointing results. I purchased two installation kits so have tried both LNBs and reflectors - no difference.

    Weak Orby signal in Central NY?

    Weak Orby signal in Central NY?

    Hi all. I am new to this forum. I have been a DirecTV customer for 25 years. Finally had to try something different now that AT&T got its greedy hands on DirecTV and finally made it unaffordable. I am not a professional satellite installer by any means but I have installed DirecTV systems for...
