8 and 10 are also QPSK and should show up on all receivers. I made this mistake once by only setting the receiver to transponders 1-4. I eventually gave up and hired a professional who had the dish peaked in about 15 seconds. He had a pro signal meter that gets satellite updates every morning before he leaves his shop.

Sorry to jack this thread, but : does anyone know more about this meter? I've never heard of such a thing and would be interested to know more.

Thanks, Eric

Where are you located? I live in Indiana and 61.5 is to the south not the east.

You need to give us more info. What is your zipcode? What angle and elevation are you using? You can also you the SatGuys angle calculator for help. Satellite Angle Calculator - SatelliteGuys.US
