Back in the early 90's I had a big C-band dish that I had some a-la-carte programming on through NPS. I had tons of problems with it ranging from the polarity switch getting fried repeatedly, the motor/jack constantly needing calibrated, it freezing in the winter, etc. I also really HATED to sit and wait for the thing to move from one bird to the other (and my wife hated more than I did) especially since the mover often didn't put it in the right place and it had to be tweaked almost every time. I eventually went to DirecTV. Five years ago I moved to a new house and it had a 10.5' B.U.D. out in the back yard mounted on a 11' pipe. Some moron had cut the cable at the base of the pipe and I haven't ever gone to the expense of running a new satellite ribbon cable out there from the house. When I moved in, I had my DirecTV moved, and then later added the second dish for local programming. I have long since had my service disconnected due to the expense. Now I just do OTA broadcast TV. But there are several channels I would really love to get back. I've seen pictures in the past of people who have done mult-LNB setups to have a fixed dish but pick up multiple birds. That is what I would like to do. It will probably be summer before I have the time/money to invest in getting this setup, but I wanted to go ahead and start planning it now. Here is what I have: Two round DirecTV dishes, each with a dual LNB. (Also an old single DirecTV LNB) A 4x4 multiswitch from the DirecTV system (Eagle MS44D S-4040-PE, labeled 950-1450MHz, Outputs 1-4, Sat A in (13V & 18V), Sat B in (22khz) (13V & 18V) A 10.5' metal mesh dish on an 11' pole. It has a cover over the feedhorn so I'm not sure of the LNB and no visible markings, don't have a good way to get up to it right now to get the cover off. It has a long motor jack on it, but the only thing readily visible on it is a serial number which I believe reads 9112934. A Chaparral Monterey 30 with VideoCiper II decoder. Here is what I would like to do: I want to subscribe to some a-la-carte packages through NPS again, like the Disney Channel for the Kids and SyFy and DIY for me. I believe all those are available on Galaxy 14. I then want to do a multi-LNB ofset arm to point some KU LNBs at some popular Ku FTA birds AND/OR use the old DirecTV dish/LNB to point to the bird that I read last night on the forum has circular polarity feeds for ION, NASA, and something else that I now forget... What I don't understand from digging around on the forums here and pouring over Lyngsat is what kind of receiver(s) I need to be able to do that. Will my old Chaparral Moneterey 30 do the paid programming still or have they changed their encoding/encryption so much since that receiver was born that I'll have to have something different? Is there a single receiver out there that I can use to buy programming from some place like NPS for these channels as well as handle the FTA channels like the glorystar channels and etc? Also is that old 4x4 switch going to be of any value at all? Thanks in advance for any and all guidance anyone can provide. I'll attach some photos in case that helps.
