    Snow on dish.

    Try windshield washer fluid with "Rain-X". Pour some in a small spray bottle and spray your dish and lnb. We get lots of wet sticky snow here and it works the very best, snow slides off and won't stick. Its cheap around $4.00 a jug, and one jug lasts all winter.

    Motor working at -40C to -45C

    Sg2100 Has not been quite that cold last winter in my location -25 to -30. The SG2100 worked great in those temps. I never noticed any problems in speed or operation, worked the same as if it was +30.

    Warped dish 33 "

    Is there any way to check, short of taking dish down and putting on flat surface, to check and see if dish is warped? If I look side on at dish, it appears to be warped a small amount. If dish is warped, what effect if any does it have on trying to fine tune?

    Inexpensive Dolby AC-3 - Canada side

    Nice find. Being a fellow Canadian know what you mean, how prices can almost double sometimes with duty and entry fees. What audio cables come with the unit?
