    Vintage C-Band Dish Mover for Spare

    Great project Magic Static! The sidecar that you used in your project looks exactly like the positioner sidecar for the Uniden UST-9900. I know that I have one of these somewhere, along with a few Drake. Your project has really got me thinking. There must be many of these old positioner...

    SHAW DIRECT

    Having already tried this I can tell you that it won't work well (especially that far South). If you have the $ buy the proper LNBF.

    How to tell if FTA product is legit

    My first interaction with Mike Kohl was when I purchased some equipment from him when he was working for Sky-Vision. I also listened to him when he was on Sat-Talk. Mike seems to have a chip on his shoulder or some bittnerness towards the satellite industry. Mike is one among many people who...

    How to tell if FTA product is legit

    My 1933 had problems with locking up from the day I bought it. I was repeatedly told it was a software glitch and to be patient for a new version. I even called in and spoke to a Russian guy who apparently was your engineer. Of course that new version never came, and I simply lived with the...

    DirecTV Alignment

    Thanks for the replies everyone. What satellite should I use to peak the dish on? I maximized the signal on 101 adjusting the height and azimuth. I assumed the other satellites would fall into place. I set the skew to the correct number for my location but perhaps I need to fine tune it to...

    DirecTV Alignment

    A friend of mine asked me to peak his DirecTV system. I don't have much experience with pizza dishes so I thought I would ask the forum for some feedback. Here are the signal levels that I am getting: Satellite : 99 (ca) Transponders: 9 to 24 Signal: 79-82 Satellite : 99 (cb) Transponders: 1...

    How to tell if FTA product is legit

    I have a Manhattan RS-1933 in the same junk pile as the Chinese STB's. I remember Mike Kohl telling us how Manhattan was here for the long run, unlike the Chinese manufactures. Titanium is one of the rare companies who conducts their business with integrity.

    OTHER Unknown Dish

    Thank you for your reply. The LNB that I am interested in is the Inverto Black Pro 0.2db Twin. I know the bolt pattern doesn't match my Prodellin feedhorn but I have a machinist friend who will take care of that. My concern is that the Inverto Black Pro indicates it is designed for a prime...

    OTHER Splitter Question

    Thanks Brian, I will give that a try. I didn't realize that the 22Khz setting had any effect if you didn't have a switch connected to it.

    OTHER Splitter Question

    The STB's will not allow me to change the 22KHz settings while using the Universal LNB setting.

    OTHER Splitter Question

    I am attempting to run 2 receivers off 1 LNB. I am using an Invacom single output LNB. I have attached a picture of the splitter that I am using. When I connect the splitter the master receiver works fine. The slave receiver which is connected to the non power passing port has the issue. When I...
