This is my first satellite system and need help with a problem.The signal is 80 and the signal quality is 40-45 is as high as I can get. I used the string test ,the string is touching. What am I doing wrong.
What color is the Signal Quality reading bar? Is this Signal Quality reading of 40 - 45% on channel 901 (RT News)? If so, do you have programming showing on your TV from RT News?
If the receiver is on channel 901, no programming is displayed and you have Signal Quality and the bar color is not green, the dish is aimed to the wrong satellite. The LNBF rotation (SKEW) is not set to the angle and the dish is aimed to a different compass reading than was printed on the aiming coordinates provided with the Glorystar system.
If you are on channel 901 and seeing a Signal Quality reading (not green color) with no programming the dish is pointed to the 103W satellite and not 97W satellite. For your region, set the LNBF rotation to 4.5 degrees counter clockwise (standing in front of the dish turn to the left), slightly increase the elevation by a degree and pan 10 degrees towards the East. The Signal Quality should turn green color and RT News programming should be displayed.
Thanks for heading me in the right direction for sat 19 . For channel 901 the S-80 Q-65 channel 106 S80-Q 70 and channel 113 is S76 Q60 . Are the numbers good or should I tune more? I must have walked 5 miles tuning the dish, well I need the workout. Iceberg I live about 45 miles east of St Cloud , Huskies territory.Thanks for all the help.
One time while setting up a dish, I lucked out and set the dish visually where I thought it should be in relation to my others. Of course, I anticipated having to bring out the portable TV and receiver. Imagine my surprise when, upon entering the house, I saw a picture on my main system with low but watchable quality! I should have bought Powerball lottery tickets that day!
Perform a factory reset and activate in the advanced mode. The default satellite is Galaxy19-ku and standard LNBF. Select Channel Search and change the scan type to Blind Scan then select FTA then scan. The receiver will log all active free tv and radio channels available on Galaxy19.
Remember that in the advanced mode, you will be completely in control of the receiver and the firmware and the Glorystar channel list will not automatically update.
