Good going ! The best way to learn is to sit out there at your dish with a small TV and your receiver. Set up a strong tp, and start learning what it's all about. Sure feels good to get the idea that you know what you're doing ! :)

I think you mean RetroJams on G18 ? If so, the sound is AC3 ( Dolby) and you'll need to come out of your Merc with an optical cable to a home theater receiver, or another device that will decode the dolby audio. Press the Audio button on your remote and see your choices. I suspect that's the deal.
There are a lot of posts with Retrojams audio as their subject , if you search on Retrojams you'll catch them all, and find the cheap headphones that serve to decode the audio quite well.
:)

Finding your first is the best when installers say it can't be done. It's so rewarding the moment you get quility, pack up everything on the roof, run down and check out your new channels. Btw, If you don't have a motor yet you can always mark your current settings with a pencil on the dish and everything east of 123.0 should require you raise the dish a bit and rotate it left (if sitting behind the dish).
