    Extremely Odd VIP722 Behavior

    For some reason I'm not getting email notifications from the site, not going to spam either.. I figured out what the problem was, the dish was slightly out of alignment from wind, I apparently had the bolts tight but not tight enough when I moved the dish from the house to a post in the ground...

    Extremely Odd VIP722 Behavior

    The last week or so, I've been having signal loss (partial & complete) on my 1000.2 EA setup, It used to show 1K.2 under device in Installation Summary, now it recognizes is as DP Feed or some crap in System info but doesn't say anything under Installation summary.. This is what it used to say...

    Mast clamp question

    I found a muffler clamp, well part of one, it fits the pipe, just doesn't have the Ubolt part, I found a couple bolts that will work tho, have to drill new holes but it should work alright.

    Mast clamp question

    Lowes is 30 miles to the closest store, I would probably be better off just finding a muffler clamp and cut some rigid teeth into that with a hacksaw..lol. Your location is Riga? Distance and customs would be a hassle..lol, I love the rugged look of those clamps tho. Nah, keep them.

    Mast clamp question

    I did think about that as an option, but wouldn't it try to slip without the part with the teeth? I might have an old muffler clamp somewhere if it would fit around this pipe. Never once thought about drilling new holes to fit..lol, that should have come to mind, but I've been sleeping like...

    Mast clamp question

    Sorry, I wasn't more specific, I meant the foot part of it. My pipe seems to have an OD of 2-3/8, I also put a hose clamp below it, but that is not going to work. Are most u bolts wide enough to go through these holes or should it be specific size? I've never bought u bolts outside of...

    Mast clamp question

    Mast clamp question

    I set a piece of fence pipe (measured 2-1/4" dia, If I remember right) in concrete the other day and I only had one clamp that was kinda damaged, I was trying to figure out what size clamps to buy online and make sure they fit the mast, can someone tell me what the standard size clamps that fit...

    Missing Channels on Guide

    Not a dumb question, no but they were listed when I was on WA even tho I wasn't subscribed to the movie pack, but they should still show just like the other premium packages shouldn't they? I was concerned because the free preview is coming up for Epix in march

    Missing Channels on Guide

    Trying to setup 1000.2 EA on 61.5 & 72.7

    Ok, moved the dish on the left side, Thanks for the help you guys gave, I have 72.7 and 61.5 with strong signals, I dont have to fool with it anymore.. I've installed Dish 500's, FTA dishes, WA dishes, first time aiming at the EA's and all in all that stupid LOS was the only issue but it caused...

    Trying to setup 1000.2 EA on 61.5 & 72.7

    You're not going to believe this, I took the dish completely down and made a temp setup on the ground in a different location with a different mast, barely (and I mean that) got the pipe plum and and slid the dish on it side to side until it was on, didn't even pan and didn't even have it hooked...

    Trying to setup 1000.2 EA on 61.5 & 72.7

    The manual (2013) says 13, dish on Twitter just told me in DM that 15, 17, 19 or 21 will do for 72.7, I'll try again with those

    Trying to setup 1000.2 EA on 61.5 & 72.7

    Here is the screenshot in DishPointer (assuming its accurate), I think it probably is since I was able to hit 77. I'm pretty sure that when that tree leafs out it will not be an issue, just need to figure out what is up with 72.7, I still didn't get an answer about what TP to use on 72.7, I...

    Trying to setup 1000.2 EA on 61.5 & 72.7

    I tried the dishpointer app on my old phone and took a photo, there is a big tree in the background but the satallites are just clear of the tree, according to the image, I am having problems trying to get the photo from Gmail with my phone, I'll share it later when I'm on my laptop. Hopefully...

    Trying to setup 1000.2 EA on 61.5 & 72.7

    I found 77 and marked that too, so I know to stay between the two marks for azimuth. The receiver is vip722, maybe I'm using wrong TP settings for 72.7, what is the best transponder on 72.7 for peaking? Edit: I'm quitting on it, getting too dark, since I'm having problems with those augmented...
