    Azteca will carry the Pacqiauo vs Margarito fight!

    I'm watching right now the Pacquiao vs Margarito event (KU not Azteca). Margarito is talking right now. I'm not sure if I should post the PID because I'm not sure if that would end up being scrambled

    36" dish with sonicview 360 elite, problem=0% quality

    Hi Mr.Twang, Right now I'm using a SonicView Elite with a motorized 39' dish and it works just fine (I've been using the recorder quite often and have my HD almost full). At the beginning I had issues with a bad LNB which made it extremelly frustrating for me (imagine a newbie trying to set...

    Question about installation

    Hi All, I just wanted to give you guys an update. I put the whole system back together (day off, no wife in the house) and managed to find someone (from work) who I could borrow a LNB (Single) from. He also gave me one of his satellite finders. I tested his LNB and I was able to find my true...

    Question about installation

    Hi All, Thank you for all the suggestions. I already took it apart (haven't removed the pole yet) so the wife stops complaining. I may order a new LNB just in case, but if I do any testing it would have to be next weekend (during weekdays is impossible for me). I was checking the internal...

    Question about installation

    Hi Mcguyver, Would it be possible to have an issue with the receiver if I can still get the DishNetwork Channels (scrambled, but I still get them) with a DirecTV antenna that I have on the roof?.

    Question about installation

    Hi Lak7, Thanks for the advice, but I already tried that yesterday afternoon (after testing the LNB). I spent most of the afternoon manually scanning basically all the satellites available to me (without the motor on the pole) with help of dishpointer.com (I set up the skew by hand). No...

    Question about installation

    Well, it seems that the LNB is not bad (I found no shorts and there was different readings from pos-center to neg-side and vice versa). Sadly, I'm going to start removing everything (including the pole that I had to put in the backyard). I would like to thank all of you for your patience...

    Question about installation

    Hi Gary, I checked in a different website and it seems that the marks on the side (where the metal triangle is) are used to set the Dish angle based on the declination. In my case the Declination angle is 6.6 and the marks on the side 1 2 3 4 5 are 10 - 20 - 30 - 40 - 50. For this motor...

    Question about installation

    Thanks Gary. I changed the Declination angle to 40-Declination (that's what the manual for this motor showed, now is 34 roughly), did some minor adjustments on the perimeter but still no quality (My elevation is still at 47). I will check the LNB now. Thanks

    Question about installation

    Thanks everybody. I'm attaching now some pictures of the setup. I tried 12143 V 2573 with some adjustments to the dish as well but nothing. I'll try to check the LNB now with the tester. Thanks

    Question about installation

    Hi Lak7, According to dishpointer.com my True South (zip 01852) coincides with AMC6. I'm attaching a picture of the settings on the receiver side. I was trying to find information about testing an LNB (with a multitester or something like that), but all I have seen is "put it on the...

    Question about installation

    Hi Lak7, I tried pretty much most of the ones posted in http://www.satelliteguys.us/free-air-fta-discussion/85225-i-need-strong-transponder-aim-my-dish.html , but mainly I was concentrating in: 72 (AMC6)-12143 V 2573 or 12068 V 9755 12148 V SR 2573 107.3 (AnikF1)-11902 H 5859 or 11912 H 5859...

    Question about installation

    Hi Lak7, The Local Oscillator frequencies for this LNB are 9.75/10.60 Ghz. Those are the values that the receiver adjust once you put universal. I tried using "Single" and adjusting the LNB frequencies manually but I got the same results. I'll check tomorrow morning again. Thanks!

    Question about installation

    Thank you Gary Lak7 and Cham. I'll give another try tomorrow, time is running out (wife is getting exasperated and is pushing for a removal) I followed your procedure Lak7 with no luck (the night just caught me so I may continue tomorrow morning). Cham, I'm using a "Pearl Edition" Twin...

    Question about installation

    Thank you Gary. I tried all of that changing every single possible variable, but it seems that it just wasn't meant to be. Before I take drastic measures, is there any way to check if the LNBF is broken? I assume that my receiver is fine because I can scan all the Dish Network channels without...

    Question about installation

    Thank you hd fan!. I have been testing this the whole afternoon and nothing. I took everything apart and re-assembled without the motor. I have been moving the elevation gradually and pointing the dish to different birds (from the string TP list) and nothing. The quality hasn't even moved, so...
