    ASC-1 Lost Count?

    I have been using the ASC-1 controller for about 5 months now. Really love how it works! However I'm having a problem that did not occur with my G-Box controller. I'm almost always off about 8-10 counts to the West and have to move the dish 8-10 counts to land on the satellite. I have tried...

    Having some issues setting up the Tivo on Brighthouse in Palm Bay FL. First I was not getting any channels except for the local broadcast networks. This was after being on the phone with BH support for 30+ minutes. They sent a tech out yesterday and he put in a call to BH and shortly after...

    Dual Ortho + 1

    Other than the usual ground rods at the dish and tying that back to the service panel ground, is anyone doing anything with the control lines from antenna to receiver?

    AMC-18 Nasa-TV Problem

    I'm having a really rough time pulling Nasa-TV in on AMC-18 (3760V). I have tried several different receivers, replaced a few suspect F-connectors and even a fresh run of RG-6. The dish is a Sami 10ft with a Dual-Ortho feed. C-Band LNBS are Norsat 8115's. NBC on horizontal comes in fine. Along...

    SRL Call

    I received a call a short time ago from SRL. My call id showed DSN Satellite. The person on the phone wanted to know if I was still using my c-band dish and if I knew that the programming was going to end on Jan 10th. She also stated that they are partnered with Directv if I decide to go that...

    What do do...Almost 6 ft Unimesh

    My almost 6ft Unimesh that I had been using for Nasa on AMC-3 is currently sitting on unused since I now have the 10ft ground mount Sami. (Which is performing beyond my wildest expectations !:)) Any suggestions about what satellite to point the Unimesh at? Or possibly put it on a polar mount...

    It took a few weeks and I finally got the latest dish put together. Actually put the entire thing together in the living room and then hauled it out to the yard. Compared to the other dishes this one looks like it didn't take its vitamins! Not going to have alot of time before the snow comes in...
