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.
