try bumping ( slightly moving the dish east or west with the motor) when it comes to signal , Quality is what your looking for. pick a known live transponder on that sat and move the dish slightly see if it improves :)

Are you slaving the Ultra to an analog receiver, or direct connect to LNB?

If slaving, are you using a DC-block or "T" with 1 power pass leg?
If not slaving, since you have a Californina Amp LNB, I assume you have a polarotor and must be controlling polarity via an analog receiver.... if so, I would recommend telling your Ultra that all transponders are horizontal, because some LNBs don't work well at 13V that the Ultra will be putting out when set on vertical.

If you are trying to get the equity mux on G3, you may have to tune your dish a little. The tight FEC requires a high carrier to noise ratio.

I had to give my 10' elevation a couple turns and it locked right on.
My dish has little room for error on that mux.
