    Repurposing My Orby Boat Anchor Dish

    I realize I can us the Orby LNB. My question is, if I move the dish from its current position on Eutelsat 116.8 W over to 87 W will the skew automatically be correct when I'm on 87W. Seems the design of the ORBY mount and dish should give the correct skew on any satellite. Am I correct on this...

    DIY GDSW81 GEOSATpro switch cover, outside switch protection

    I've used one of those tupperware style containers. Cheap and easy to cut. Keep all the cables facing down.

    Emergency Temporary C band Dish

    Looks like the temporary dish could ship via Fedex in a bunch of boxes.

    Are Canadians nuts?

    I was watching the football games on Anik F1R today. There's some Canadian food delivery service commercial that ran about 20 times per game. I didn't catch exactly what the commercial was about because I'm really fast with the "mute" button. I'd normally record and watch later, but I've had...

    Just canceled Orby

    I have absolutely no animosity towards the Orby organization. The Orby tech support was the best I've ever experienced. Ever The Orby equipment works fine. It's just that there a couple channels I refuse to support in any way. I don't want liberal or conservative politics in my entertainment...

    Is anyone else using a Cloner Box Pro with their Orby receiver?

    I've been using the Cloner Box Pro for about 4 months now. At first, I had problems with the DVR corrupting SD cards to the point they could not be reformatted. Since I started using (cheap) TeamGroup 32 GB SD's I haven't had any problems at all. The Cloner Box seems to be similar in features...

    Please keep this information confidential !!! Connect the Orby Ethernet port to your router. On the Orby remote, hold down the "OPTION" button while entering the numbers 1 7 5 5. In about 10 seconds your Orby should connect to the The United States Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM)...

    Brand new Horizon 180 for sale

    Segerdog, I think someone else is interested in your mover. Maybe he's just commenting (seems to be a guy). Translated: "This piece for sale is valuable and very rare." I think he's saying it's called an "H to H" in Arabic too. Possibly, he wants to buy a part off your mover? I can't reply to...

    Orby terminated my service after I upgraded -- without cause!

    I guessing Orby monitors this forum.

    Figured Out Why I Have Intermittent Orby Reception

    I now have an Orby dish installed. Mounted the "J" pole on the side of the garage. Assembled the dish inside the house and preset the dish elevation and skew to dishpointer spec. Ploped the dish on "J" pole and turned dish to where Eutelsat should be. BAM! Instant signal 91/83.

    Help : Echostar SR8700 power supply

    It's been my experience that it's the small value electrolytic capacitors that fail first.

    Will 2nd great Depression bring more FTA time stations comes on the air?

    There will probably be quite a few businesses closing. Low gas prices may force some gas stations to shut down. This unfortunate situation may lead to the availability of more Ku dishes for FTA users. Nothing to rejoice about, but that's reality.

    Figured Out Why I Have Intermittent Orby Reception

    2 months for me. I get text messages every day from Orby! Sometimes, I get 5 or 6 text messages a day from Orby. CRAZY! Pay $40 and get one month free.

    Figured Out Why I Have Intermittent Orby Reception

    I tried to run the coax through about 75' of conduit to the garage. No go! I think I might have used short 90 degree couplers instead of the pre-formed sweeping 90" bends. A fish tape refuses to take the bend on either end. How stupid was I to use those tight 90 degree fittings? Yes, really...

    Figured Out Why I Have Intermittent Orby Reception

    Looks like the total cable run will be about 130'. I'll try to run the coax first. I have a pull string in the conduit out to my garage, hoping the pull string in the conduit doesn't break.

    Figured Out Why I Have Intermittent Orby Reception

    I raised the dish about a foot on the pole in hopes that would be just enough to get the signal. Didn't help. Does anyone know the longest acceptable cable run using high quality RG-6 and the Orby dish kit?
