While trying to find my orby dish location the signal meter only worked for a couple minutes then went blank. I had to keep reentering the signal meter a few times to I found the signal. When I finally got a signal it kept working. Then I peaked the dish for best signal.

do you have to have subscription to use the meter?
Did you find it ok? It's abt 3 levels down in the settings.

Note - it's slow, might be best to use an external meter to rough in the dish then go to the built in meter to fine tune.

Does not take much of an external meter - I used an old cheap squeal meter and it helped a lot.

I ended up getting the orby dish and it was a lot easier to tune in as long as you follow the directions to set up the dish. Also make sure your pipe is plumb or it will be hard to find the satelite,
