    I used to install DirecTV years ago. I was wondering if the Phase 3 Triple LNB Dish is still needed for HD programming? Or has everything gone to the slimlime? Have they added any HD programming on 101 that can be picked up with the regular 18 inch dish? Thanks in advance.

    Defective switch or receiver setup problem?

    I am using a DMS International 4x1 DiSEqC switch. I can only get vertically polarized signals through the switch (except on the Sat2 input which seems to pass all polarizations.) Is this a defective switch or could I have something setup wrong with the receiver? Thanks in advance.

    What does RF, IF, and LO mean on an LNB?

    Just bought an LNB and it has the following written on it: RF: 11.7 - 12.5 GHz IF: 950 - 1750 MHz LO: 10.75 GHz Looks like input and output frequency for the 1st two frequency ranges. But I was wondering what RF, IF, and LO exactly are abbreviations of? Thanks in advance :)
