    Correct setting for blind scan

    What's More Important?

    Having a winegard 1m dish with the qph-031. Don't know the ideal focal point. But moving the lnb back and forth doesn't make any difference in both the strong and the weak transponder. For me, it doesn't matter. It work anyway.

    Slack in stab-100 motor

    Thank for the information. I find it odd that the said in the manual that the precision of the motor is 0.1° while there is such a slack.

    Need help for a new FTA setup. Winegard 3100 Stab 100 Viewsat2000 ultra

    Hum... Maybe a mistake on my part. At least I was getting something on the Q meter of the viewsat. But the motor was set to anik f1. I was thinking that this was the info channel that coming in clear. In fact, I got no image, but got the Quality up to 95. Which is a start ( at least for me )...

    Need help for a new FTA setup. Winegard 3100 Stab 100 Viewsat2000 ultra

    At last. Seem I got a bad disec switch. By moving the motor to anik f1. Disconnecting the motor and connecting the receiver directly to the lnbf, I got starchoice info channel coming in the clear. Will leave that there for the night and try another disec switch another day.
