I've been trying to set up a signal meter with DISH PRO PLUS figures so I can tune on any transponder I want to at 110 or 119 deg W (and also a learning project for curiousity purposes of how things are done with the DISH 500 DPP).

I hooked up the DPP on my DISH 500 to a FTA receiver to handle various DiSEQc and tone settings and then a leg went off to a spectrum analzyer so I could see the results as I tried various settings.

I do see some stacking going on and from what I've been able to determine, that should be the odds and evens from 119 or 110 deg W sats and polarity setting shouldn't make a difference.

With my setup, I tested things with polarity V, tone off, and used diseqc ports 1/4, 2/4, 3/4 and 4/4 (since I think I saw somewhere that diseqc is also invoved in some way) and all I got were 119W odd numbered transponders in the lower part of the stack and 119W even numbered transponders possibly in the upper part of the stacked spectrum. When I repeated the process with polarity H, tone off and the 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, and 4/4 diseqc ports, I get the same result.

Something doesn't seem right to me as I'd think either polarity or diseqc port should be able to make the 119 or 110 deg W sats active.

How is the 110 deg W spectrum supposed to be selected? Am I using the wrong diseqc ports (should it be diseqc port 1/2, 2/2?) or is 22Khz tone involved, or ....?

If the odds and evens on a given satellite are stacked, then it becomes an issue of what settings are needed to select the 110 deg W sat or the 119 deg W sat for my meter to tune.

Thanks.
