I hooked up my 129 LNB today on my 1000+ dish. I never used it before as I was using 61.5 on a wing dish. I have always used 110/119 on the 1000+. My signal level on 129 is 45-50 range. on 110/119 its 80-85. Is that normal for 129 in my part of the country? I am in Charlotte, NC.

It varies alot depending on the TR

TR 1 30
TR 5 61
TR 7 50
TR 17 51
TR21 69

My locals seems to be on TR 7 signal level 50

My locals on 61.5 I believe are on Spot 11 signal level 80

I guess the lower elevation really drops the levels.

System did an interesting thing today. Yesterday after adding the 129 LNB all my HD channels were being picked up from 129 and it was for the most part ignoring my 61.5 LNB. Today it has switched to using 61.5 for all channels that are on both LNBs, and is only using 129 for those channels that are on 129 only.

Zaxcom,

I believe that is the way it works if some channels are on more than one Orbital slot, your receiver(s) will randomly pick which orbital slot to use. Obviously, the HD additions will have to be picked up from 129 as that is the only orbital slot you can receive them from with your installation.

I have a 61.5/110/119/129 installation and that has been normal for me as well.
