Last October Dish put me on the eastern arc in norther RI. I thought I was originaly on 110, 119, 61.5. Today I went in to check SS and I find I am now on 77, 72.5, and 61.5. The screen on the receive is still telling me to put in my zip and go to 110 or 119. The direction of the dish has not been physically changed since October when it was installed. What is this all about? The strengths are as follows:

72.7 62
77 48
61.5 46

The meter screen is still set for western arc settings. It doesn't reflect the eastern arc settings yet. DISH needs to update it via software , but I am sure they aren't even aware of ti.

Yes, the last time that information was updated was for the 105 and 121 superdish.

It will, however, give you accurate pointing info for a single dish if you use dish300 and select any of the slots other than 105 and 121.
