    switching polarity

    thanks for all the help. I changed ports on the disecq and everything is working fine. I guess it must be a bad port. I am getting many satellite now, and all kinds of channels. I can tell that I am really going to like this. Thanks again for all the help

    switching polarity

    I have my new qhp-31 and hh-90 motor installed, but I can not get the polarity to switch on its on. I have put a disecq switch between the lnb and the motor but I don't know how to make it switch. On my Coolsat 5K there is no option for disecq ports when you are in motorized dish setup. I...

    true south satellite

    thanks again PSB. sounds simple enough. Heres my plan. two cables from lnb for my FTA receiver, one linear and one circular ran through the disecq sws. and another cable ran from my circular side to the dish network receiver. Will I have to use the FTA receiver to move between 119 and 110...

    true south satellite

    I would like to run mine that way also. I would also like to run my dish network receiver from this lnb. What would I need to Hook up both C and L to my FTA receiver, and my Dish Network receiver? Thanks again, I now have AMC- 5 on my stationary dish, and the position marked, Hopefully...

    true south satellite

    Thanks, Nimiq2 is not listed as one of the satellites on my receiver. I will shoot for amc5. I have also ordered the QPH-31 lnb. will it pick up the NIMIQ2 satellite, and is there a way to program it into the Coolsat 5000? Thanks

    true south satellite

    Thanks TRON. If I understand what your saying, is that If I point the dish at 173.5 degrees ( true south?) then the motor should take the dish to the proper place when I goto nimiq2 Then I can peak my signal, tighten everything down, and be set to go. Does this sound correct?

    true south satellite

    I have ordered the HH90 motor now and have a few more dumb questions. I have read other threads that cover this. so I have the basic procedure. what I'm not sure of is which satellite is my true south. My Longitude is 80.913263. So when I look at LYNGSAT, It could be AMC5, or NIMIQ2, If I...

    Dish 500

    my current FTA dish is an old primestar that is a 39 inch oval. this would be the dish that I would put the Invacom lnb on. If I can make the dish fit the HH motor. If not I may have to buy a bigger dish also. Any suggestions? Will this work? thanks

    Dish 500

    I was wondering if the Invacom linear/circular Lnb would allow me to recieve the FTA channels and the dish network channels with just one dish. And run two cables from the lnb to my Coolsat (for FTA) and my Dish receiver for the paid programs. I would have to buy a HH motor I realize. Has...

    Anik f1r 107.3 W

    I thought that the card reader may be something like the smart card in my dish 500, and I could purchase starchoice. Thanks for all the feed back. I have a few other questions, but maybe I should start a new thread. thanks again.

    Anik f1r 107.3 W

    Thanks for all the feed back, I wasn't aware that I could subscribe to star choice, I have never seen there adds around here, like dish and direct. I also seen that my coolsat 5000 came with a card reader option. I'm not sure what that means. Could I possibly use it to receive the pay...

    Anik f1r 107.3 W

    I have been trying to find out if Anik f1R 107.3 W is viewable from my location in South Carllina. I would like to get the FTA channels the Lynsat has listed for this satellite. I was told that I would need a circular lnb, and that It could only be received in Canada. But what Little I know...

    C-band setup

    I got my C band up and running this weekend. Only on the Anolog channels. I haven't wired it to my coolsat yet. I am able to pickup G4, and T6. With T6 being at my upper limit. This lets me set the dish and my lower limit and take it out of the way of my Dish Network dish. I will have to...
