In a past setup I had a 1000.2 with a 500 wing for 129 to get more SS because I did not have LOS on 61.5.

I just had the 61.5 wing added for my locals. I covered the 129 lnb and ran a check switch, I now show 100, 119 and the in(61.5) on the 1000.2 with 129 removed. Can I leave the setup like this from here on out without issue and get all my hd off 61.5 only.

Thanks.

Thanks!

Another question:

Im only getting 37-39 off TP 19 (disc/tlc) and 66-68 off tp 15 (locals) near richmond va. Are these about normal because its the best I can get. The guy who did the install used a Y adapter on the 500 instead of an I.

With the I-Adapter and a slight repeak afterwards it would go a little higher.

Thanks, I compared 129 vs 61.5 on the same hd channels I watch a lot. 129 was a good bit higher even after I peaked the 61.5 with the Y, so I tried peaking the 1000.4 and was able to add about 10pts to my 129 signals. Ill stick with it and just use 61.5 for locals.

I know it may sound weird... but with the 90cm comparing 129 and 61.5, I get strong signals from 129 in my area.

What im getting on 129 with the 1000 is much better than I could do in South Carolina. I actually added a D500 just for 129 to help out.

Id love to set up something one day with a d500 on each sat :)
