I'm at a client's home where we installed a video distribution system using Control 4. We're having some clarity issues on the Hopper 3 and Joey 2.0. The home owner had a different company do the satellite install. I have a super buddy meter that I hooked up to the dish feed line to check the signal strength. There was locked signal for the 110 and 119 satellites and nothing with 129. One thing I also noticed was there was a locked signal on the 61.5? That confuses me. I was under the impression for a western arc lnb the required satellites were 110, 119 and 129 with the 129 handling most of the HD signals. Am I unaware of something?

You must have a dish aligned way off. 61.5 would be about 90 degrees off from 129 so you should be able to see the misaligned dish easily.

Sometimes the 119 incorrectly reads as the 61.5 and vice versa. I assume you're ID'ing the Sat with your Meter, then scanning to get Id if it fails?

I also had that problem until I realized my Sat Buddy was several versions behind on software upgrades
