    Signal strength issue - 1000.4 EA

    Glad ;) to know that I'm not the only one in this situation. Played around with the dish on Friday. I was a little bit less aggressive with the cheating on the 72.7. Moved it so it only went down 5-7 and got better SS on the 61.5. Also realized that some of the transponders on the 61.5 are spot...

    Signal strength issue - 1000.4 EA

    You are right. Looking at the dish, pretty sure the signal comes in above the treee line/power line. So trees are not the problem. One thing I didn't mentionned. I'm running a single cable into a separator into my VIP722. Wonder if running two separate cables and removing the separator would...

    Signal strength issue - 1000.4 EA

    Well, after fiddling around the last two weeks and not getting ahead, it's time to ask the pro. Previously, I had a Dish 500 (110/119) and a wing dish at 61.5. Everything had been going fine for years, hardly loosing signal even during bad weather. Was asked by DishNetwork to switch my wing to...

    Many thanks for all the info. and suggestions from all of you. Tried to go the easy way this afternoon and re-pointed my wing dish from 61.5 to 129°. Got the az., elev., and skew from web site refereed by all of you. I had no problem hitting the 72.7 then 110 and 119 (all with the respective...

    Relocating from 61.5° to 129° question.

    Thanks SaltiDaw and n0qcu. You are right; I was looking at the 72.7° sat. Channels listing and I’m missing roughly 15-20 HD. Have them right now but SD only. Some of them are really worth the changeover. I will switch over to the eastern arc (61.5, 72.7 and 77°) as soon as possible. More...
