    distance from hopper to joey

    I am wondering if anyone out there has tried using RG-11 cable to extend a joey from the node. If so how far have you extended it. Thanks, Kodiak_ak

    StarBand Echo*9 121 & Bjirdog Ultra

    I found the file on the Birdog Ultra download page (option 3 create your own list). Also, was able to hookup a Dish receiver to the Starband LNB, set to point dish and lock to the 121 sat to verify.

    Alot of channel moving for Alaska`s 55xx HD service. Some have moved off spotbeams to ConUS beam in effect dropping signal levels to critical. Anyone know why these changes are taking place?

    StarBand Echo*9 121 & Bjirdog Ultra

    I am trying to lineup a 1.2m Starband dish to orbital slot 121. My Birdog Ultra does not have the file, wondering if anyone has ran into this issue. I downloaded the latest "Specific" list from Birdog.TV site, but the 121 is missing.

    Just installed my first Hopper in Kodiak, Alaska but having issues with getting the Spotbeamed 55xx HD channels on the guide. Anyone have one of these working in Alaska? Local HD channels OK. 1.2 M Channel Master with three LNB's, DPP33 switch, Solo Node.

    HDNET issue in Alaska

    I noticed that HDNET channel 5510 is now on the 119 TP3 Spot A-24 and still on the 110 TP7. The problem is that if you have access to the 110 and 119 Sats, my receivers (722 & 211) lock onto the non-spotbeam 5510 on the 110 TP7. If I take the 110 sat offline, then the receiver locks on the...

    Best Dish for RV use with a 722k

    722 on the road I have a ViP 622 (same w/ smaller drive) and use it on the road with great results. I agree, no vibration issues unless powered up. As far the antenna goes, I use a single LNB aimed at the 110. This gives me several HD channels, Locals via All American Direct in HD. You could...

    Alaska HD channels

    The HD channels for Alaska are spotbeamed to us on 110, 129 and now some on the new 119 sat. The channel numbers are mostly 55xx, but on one new 211 receiver I just hooked up has them on 43xx. These channels (43xx & 55xx) are shown on the Satguys List, but why would one location in the same city...

    Espnu or All American Direct distants in HD

    All American Direct on 119W I hope they keep their SD programming on 119 or change it to HD, but leave it on 119w. May not be possible though....

    Where is the new AK/HI HD

    Anchorage HD locals Is there any information about the other Anchorage HD locals on Dish? FOX, NBC, ABC? What is the delay? It is interesting about 5604 &5621. If you tune to the channel, then press info twice, it shows 129--but then go to point dish screen (menu 6-1-1) it shows 129 tp 9...

    VP 622 does not see 129W

    I switched out the legacy hardware to DishPro DPP33 with DP LNB's. Now have good switch test, but still do not understand why only 129 has trouble with legecy. Now waiting for Dish to get all the HD programming on the 5 spotbeams set up on 129. Kodiak,AK

    VP 622 does not see 129W

    Switch tests are ok, showing sw-64 with 110 and 119 normal, just no 129. Would you know what settings are to be checked (Superdish and Alternate) on the VP622? If I hook up the 622 directly to the 1M dish, I still see no signal on 129, but do with the 4900 unit.

    VP 622 does not see 129W

    I used a old 4900 receiver to aim a 1M dish to the 129W (was on the 148). Get only TP 12 with 122 sig strength (old scale). When I connect the dish to my Microyal SW-64 (also has 119 & 110), the VP 622 sees nothing on the 129W. Is this a legacy issue?
