    New installation: 119 good, no 110

    Yes on 101 Yes, in Oklahoma, then packed up and set up here in Utah. Yes Yes, I can get >100 on the bar, and it says locked. It says wrong satellite, 119W with high numbers OR nothing. RED No, this is new stuff from installer (early Sept.), 311 receiver 500 antenna.

    New installation: 119 good, no 110

    I think you agree with me; we have some channels but not others. Yes, several checks, but I either have no 110W or wrong satellite (119W with 110W selected.)

    New installation: 119 good, no 110

    The skew angle from the screen is 92 I'll give it a shot. My wife is getting frustrated when I work on it; many channels seem to work fine on 119W but there are more that we should have. Would they be broadcast on 110W?

    New installation: 119 good, no 110

    There are two feedhorns, one is labeled 110W and the other 119W. I believe there are two LNBs; we had planned for two receivers but changed our mind. I haven't taken the antenna apart, (yet) my wife panics when I attack something with screwdrivers and wrenches. One of my thoughts is to see...

    New installation: 119 good, no 110

    Yes, I have done that and have the numbers. I have 119 but not 110, which are at the same angles.

    New installation: 119 good, no 110

    That's exactly what I've done, except for the TV part, but I have the meter and adjust for max. signal. My guess/assumption is that the antenna beam pattern doesn't cover both satellites, but I've not yet got 110W. Does anyone know exactly what the positions of the two satellites are? (Is?)

    New installation: 119 good, no 110

    But this is a mobile installation. The installer left it in Oklahoma, before I packed it away. (Now in southern Utah and soon to be in Arizona) I'm mainly interested in perfecting a procedure.

    New installation: 119 good, no 110

    Well, I'm an electronics engineer with more years of experience than I care to admit, but satellite television is new to me although I have many years with microwave and radar. I had adjusted azimuth, elevation, and skew for maximum signal but must have been pointed at 119. I have tried going...

    New installation: 119 good, no 110

    Thanks for the reply, but I'm more than a little confused; What is "the 110 side"? I have two feedhorns but assume one isn't connected. I adjusted azimuth, elevation, and skew for max signal, how can I only receive from only one satellite when they're at the same angles?

    New installation: 119 good, no 110

    But... this is a new system, the installer made it work but my first attempt fails. I'm hoping to understand the theory behind this thing.

    New installation: 119 good, no 110

    This is a mobile setup on a tripod with no obstructions. My angles for 119 and 110 are the same, I have aimed at those correct angles and fine-tuned to get ~105 on 119 but don't seem able to get 110 at all, and we're missing some channels. It might be something simple but I've tried all I can...
