    Help. I've been looking for an hour for a link that I'm sure I found on this forum. It goes to a web site that you can put your address in and the sat you are looking for and it shows a picture of where you are and the direction to point your dish and a bunch of other angles, skews ect...

    OLD Primestar dish?

    I went back to the website that had the info about rotating the lnb 38 degrees to the right. Silly me thought to the right was looking at but after rereading the info it from standing behind the dish. The guy that thought that up must have way longer arms than mine.

    OLD Primestar dish?

    Thanks for the replies. I'm not trying to get circular but so far all I have gotten is 500 scrambled dish channels and 2 FTA channels showing how to install a dish smart card. Good picture though! The signal meter only gets excited when I'm pointing at one of the dish sats. From 119 to 123...

    Dishpointer says to rotate lnb 38 degrees to the right. Would that be the dovebar on the front?

    OK. Thanks! Now that I have started working on the old BUD I have a few more question. So far I have loosened up the acuator arm, cleared the trees that have grown up, hooked up the receiver and inspected the cables. Is there any way to test the cable going from the dish to the house to make...

    New question. I have only been able to lock in on dish network with this set up. Does this mean that only the circ. part of the lnb is working?

    Picture going, going , gone

    I had a BUD hooked up to my house for years and would look through the sats from time to time. The picture kept getting worse every year till there was none. Question. Does this sound like LNB problem? If I replace the LNB will my 16 year old Uniden receiver still work?

    OLD Primestar dish?

    since I'm looking at making this stationary for now and locking in on G 18 would this work with only one line connected if it was hooked to the correct one? If so would that be Hor. or Ver??

    OLD Primestar dish?

    would the 4 / 1 switch that came with the fta work to try it out? I'm guessing from what you are saying if I only hook up one cable to it I'm not going to get a signal.
