    Galaxy 18 help

    Never under estimate a cabling problem. Thanks Lak7:up, followed your tip, pulled the LNB and found that it works fine and as a result located a break in my sat cable.:o Sig strength is now 80%, but still having trouble pinning down G18 at either 11720 or 11800 or 12114. I saw a thread...

    Galaxy 18 help

    LNB is flush, i.e. furthest it can be away from dish. I'm am not using any switches. Could it be another problem if I am not getting 50-80% signal out of the LNB? What I'm gathering here from all of your comments is that % signal strength is related only to the LNB and not dish position or...

    Galaxy 18 help

    Iceberg. Thanks. My LNB was skewed too much. Question: When I power the receiver and set the freq for G18, should signal always be at 50-80%? regardless of whether the dish is aligned for max quality? Would moving the LNB out farther improve signal %? Right now the LNB is flush up to the...

    Same cable that was left behind from an old bev install. Thanks for confirming the skew direction. I had it set properly. Will over skewing degrade signal and quality or just quality?

    Galaxy 18 help

    The dish is mounted on the roof and line of sight is good. I know for sure that the mast is off about 15° off vertical, I thought I could compensate for that by increasing the elevation of the dish. Question: after an adjustment is made to the dish alignment, how long should I wait before...

    Galaxy 18 help

    Thanks eurosport84: Coax connections are new. I cut and re-threaded the ends. LNB has two ports. Does it matter which port I use? Iceberg, 20.2°L skew, does this mean twisting the LNB left while facing the dish? Will the skew angle affect signal or quality strength?

    Signal strength never reaches above 20-30% Quality did bounce around 0 - 30% but very unstable. Tried skew, no change in either signal or quality strength.

    Digiwave and viewsat vs2000 ultra The Viewsat vs2000 is new. I will check the voltage reading again with the receiver set to the LNB power ON. Hopefully that will work. I took the receiver over to the Tech guys at the store where I purchased it and they said it worked fine. They also said...

    Digiwave and viewsat vs2000 ultra Hi qwert1515 and thank you for the reply! I must admit there is a lot to learn with FTA. I'm having an issue with a Digiwave SATF105 Satellite Finder as it will not power up from the VS2000 receiver. I thought that the Dish IN port on the receiver has a...
