anyone have any suggestions on getting satmex6 to pass acp without trying to tweek the dish for an hour? I have never had a problem with horizons or satmex5 passing acp with very high numbers (70-90) but no matter how much time i spend trying to get satmex6 to pass, acp always fails at around 50-55. Every once in awhile i can get it to pass with a 60 or so but most of the time i end up calling tech support to have them change the bird on the account. I have the same trouble every once in awhile on IA8 as well. Any ideas?

Are you just adjusting skew? I have on occasion had to detune the dish, usually elevation just a bit to xpol.

I've tried adjusting the elevation and it works once in a while, but most of the time no luck. Another trick I've tried is adjusting one or both of the mounting struts and that actually works with most birds, but i have nothing but trouble with satmex6

Found a service bulletin that said to use 2 filters with the opi. That may help, not sure. FSB_060316_01A
