    Software 00.05.08 - low signal

    Are you talking about the arm that holds the LNB at the end? I replaced the whole thing along with that part.

    Software 00.05.08 - low signal

    Well, I thought having 24" will take care of signal problem and especially rainfade. It is raining here in Little Rock, and I went to take a look at the signal meter and the signal would drop even to 0! Most of them time it wouls stay between 30 and 50 but then it would drop to dead 0. I was...

    Software 00.05.08 - low signal

    Now, I tried re-peak the signal for now almost 2 hours with no luck. I've been going by a single degree from 0-80 (singla strenght) azimuth and 30-80 (signal strenght) elevation and can not get anything better then 80-81. Should I consider buying 30" dish (I think asking Voom to send me one will...

    Software 00.05.08 - low signal

    Well, so I called them and said I'll come over, pick up the dish and put it on myself. They said that is no problem and that's what I did. Went and returned the old dish to them and took the new one. They saw the old plastic one with the LNB screwed in from the top to the dish and said they...

    Software 00.05.08 - low signal

    Well yeah, it was not. In addition, I do not have local channels at all. The antenna he brought was not even close for the required one for my area. I've talked to Wilt, Lori at Voom headq, Installs and so far - it was and is still messed up.

    Software 00.05.08 - low signal

    I know exactly what you are talking about. I know how a little on how to adjust the dish and just wanted to know if the Rainbow is on top of Echostar or below. Now, since the last post I turned the received OFF and the software downloaded. My signal strenght is now at 69 and signal power...

    Software 00.05.08 - low signal

    He has tried to install it TWICE. I was trying to tell him that they are in different position but he assured me he tuned it 100% perfect because the meter showed him 99% on Echostar. He said: it is the same bird but different transponders. Ohh boy! Should I try to peak it a little? Show I...

    Software 00.05.08 - low signal

    Also, I'm using the second output on the LNB for Dish Network International. The signal on the Dish Network receiver is between 80-90 but I can watch only 2 out of 3 channels on my package (I get an error that the signal on one of the transponders is lost).

    Software 00.05.08 - low signal

    The signal strenght is between 15 and 22 (satellite signal). Signal quality is 63. Is that because the dish is plastic!? Anyway, what do you mean by properly peaked? The signal on the meter he had was 99% out of a 100% (the meter was a BirdDog) - pointing Echostar 61.5. The guy at Installs...

    Software 00.05.08 - low signal

    I just (FINALLY!) got the Voom installed and after 1 hour on the phone with Installs dept, he got it to work. Now, I was told by Voom hedq. that the satellite dish was sent and was received by the installer. The guy shows up with dirty plastic Channel Master (30"?) dish, screws the LNB from...
