Ok, when using a multi lnbf for 65 and 72.7 what sat should I try aiming for first? What are the benefits of having a lnbf for both 65 and 72.7 over one just for 72.7. Thanks!

WEll you need both Sats because programming is split between both Sats. I Use the 81.5 for finding signal, although the Supper Buddy Sat Meter has 72 as LNBF 1, but that's because if the elevation isn't right, it'll pick up the 77. Using the 61.5, there's not another one as close as to mistakenly point to, but you want to peak both of them

So getting a singular lnbf would not be a wise choice!

If for some reason you had to go with just one LNB, I would aim it at 61.5. Dish recently moved many popular channels there from 72.7. But as Hipkat said, a dual LNB for both sats would be the better choice.

Thanks! for the info, it might be awhile before I do the setup, This fall just before football season I will invest to get it going! Got to have the big 10 network! :)
