EQUIPMENT:
Linkbox 9000i, Titanium ASC1, Titanium CK1S, 10 ' mesh,
actuatior is working
SETTINGS:
Wires from edge to pole in middle.
Used these to center the pole.
Focal length: 10' dish, depth 24.5" - so focal length is 36.7"
Set the CK1S to between 36 and 37
Marked the edge of the dish when pointed stright up.
Moved the CK1S Vertical to this mark.
Used an inclinmeter to point the dish to 46.7 which should be
close to Intelsat21 (58W)
Set Horizintal to 18v - vertical to 13v.

From the attached pictures you can see how low the signal strength is.
The highest I got was 49 and I twisted the lnb 180 degrees.
I have no other way of finding a satellite other than the inclinometer.
Maybe a small TV out in the yard next to the dish might help????
Of course it would not be an hdmi connection.
I don't know the name of the cable with the wire in the center and a twist
device to attach it with. If there is one of these connections on the LinkBox 9000i
then I probably cound take a Tv out to the dish.

Yes, a tv and receiver at the dish would be a definite help in finding the satellite. By cable with wire in center and twist device to attach - do you mean coax cable?

If so, the only coax attachment on the Linkbox 9000i is for LNB in/out. It does have composite and component video outputs in addition to the HDMI so if your tv has either of those as an input you are good. :)

I guess the proper name is coax cable . Don't think this will work with taking the video
input from the receiver to the TV. No way to connect it that I see.:(
Thanks for helping.

If your tv only has a coax input you can buy one of these at Walmart.

Connect the composite video (yellow RCA jack) and audio (red and white RCA jacks) from the Linkbox to it and it will output the audio and video to coax on channel 3 or 4 that you can connect to your tv. :)

I now have a signal strength of 49.
I would like you all to verify these next few statements of mine.
There is a plastic funnel looking part that sticks on the pole where
the lnb is placed. The Scalar ring is fastened to it, then the LNB fits
inside the scalar ring at 36.7". My dish is 120", from a string stretched
across the dish to the center is 24.5". So the focal length is 36.7".

So the measurement from the center of the dish to the top of the scalar
ring should be 36.7". The Funnel shaped device might have moved
up or down due to all the twisting I did to try to get a better signal.
I think I will have to take the black plastic cover off the scalar because
it makes the measurement to the top of the scalar ring difficult to make.
Your thoughts please.
