Has anyone ever known anyone to get viewable FTA quality with an indoor satellite? I’m in a 3rd floor apartment and have my dish right next to the window. I’m using X Squared M1 FTA Satellite Receiver, standard linear KU LNB, and a universal Winegard 30” reflector dish. When I tried using the WiFi IPTV from the receiver, it gave me wrong password errors, when I know it’s right, even with the case. I asked the manufacturer about it, they said the receiver was a beta product, and the WiFi may not work. Well, my LNB is at 30 degree skew, the recommended for my area. At this point, I’m thinking of trying a different receiver, like one that’s not in beta testing. They left that info out, in the EBAY ad. I tried the dish in several different directions for the channel scan. I use iPhone apps which clearly indicate that the signal is reflecting from dish to LNB correctly for the positioning. Is it impossible to get a quality signal indoors next to a window on floor 3, or should I try a different receiver?
