    There is a full line of sight. The LNB arm have a 1/2 inch movement I think that is what it is. The dish has a bad design for the arm (no stabilizers with one bolt holding it on).

    Issues finding satellite

    I finally got it to work yesterday. I was using the wrong skew on the lnb and using a compass on top of a metal roof does not work well... Thank you for the replies and so far everything is working good. Got a SM of 54 and a signal strength of 85. Could possibly tweak it for better numbers.

    What diplexer and LNB is needed for DIY install?

    I am looking at doing a DIY install of Orby. I got a 36" FTA dish, OTA anttena, and all the cabling ran. Have not gotten a receiver yet. What single LO 10750 LNBF is recommended and what specific duplexer is needed for combining sat and anttena?
