We have had some bad wind and snow storms. I have lost my HD channels and believe my satellite has moved. The numbers are around 80 and lower were about 92. These are the first 3 rows of my readings
80 93 77 51 79 83 80 83
79 87 76 59 79 85 79 83
79 0 76 0 75 85 77 82

Does this provide any help in determining which adjustment should be done first. Horizontal or Verticle?

I currently have a 5 LNB and would my changing to a new 3 LNB help?

Thanks
Bernie

Yes -your dish is out of alinement - call for service -You should be able to change out to a 3 LNB --but that won't help your current numbers

While someone checks the signal strength menu, push lightly on the dish in different directions. That should tell you which way the adjustments need to be made. Keep in mind it takes several seconds for changes in signal strength numbers to change.

Which satellite are those readings from?
They look like the 101 sat to me.
What are your readings on 99 and 103?
But in any case the dish needs to be realigned.
