Need some more details

What switch are you using if any?

Which receiver is controlling the motor? Which motor do you have? Are you using USALS to control the motor?

When you get 91, 61.5 and 110 are you getting any channels or just Signal and Quality. 61.5 and 110 are circular and 91 is linear so that is good.

The more details you give the better we can help. :)

Start by reviewing the motor install instructions in the stickies of this forum....... OOPS! It's Gone!!! :eek: try: http://www.satelliteguys.us/free-air-fta-discussion/190436-how-set-up-motorized-ku-band-offset-dish.html

  • Set your motor scale to Latitude 41
  • Set your dish elevation angle to the correct setting indicated in the motor manual (25 deg???)
  • Connect the receiver directly to the motor
  • Connect the motor directly to the L port of the LNBF
  • Turn on the receiver and enter the installation menu
  • Set the satellite to (see below)
  • LNB to Standard
  • LO Frequency to 10750
  • Transponder Frequency to (see below)
  • Polarity to (see below)
  • Symbol Rate to (see below)
  • Motor USALS ON
  • Set the Longitude to 76W
  • Set the Latitude to 40.9N
  • Move the motor to the satellite with the "Go to Satellite" function of the receiver (or it may move on its own ... don't know this receiver).
  • Make slow and slight sweeping movements of the dish 10 degrees on either side of where you have taken the compass reading for AMC5. If you don't find the sat, increase or decrease the elevation of the dish angle by one degree and slowly sweep again. Repeat until found. Some dish angles are not very accurate, so you may have to move the elevation angle many degrees above or below the starting angle.

# Set the satellite to AMC5

# Transponder Frequency to 12177
# Polarity to H
# Symbol Rate to 20500

That TP doesnt exist anymore ;)

I would have the OP motor to Horizon 2 at 74W and log in Ohio News
11733 H 6616
me personally ;)

Ohio news is a weak signal for me, but that may just be because of tree branches at my location. Right now AMC9 (83W), 11735 H, 4444 is pretty strong and it's only about 9 degrees west of dj's due south.

I copied the three posts in question and placed it in the FAQ (locked so nobody can add posts except staff)

404 - Whoops Page Not Found

Thank you to Iceberg, but can you repair the access to this post? Maybe place it as a stickie in the FTA forum header?

Tell us what you have done.

What motor are you using?
What is the Motor Latitude Angle?
What is the Dish Elevation Angle?
What satellite are you aiming for?
Tell us all settings in the receiver installation menu....

I have a suggestion

dj_flako - - - don't give up!! You have made good progress.

Because of your longitude I might suggest you use 77W as your true south.

12632 V 20000 and it is circular (this is MPEG4 so don't worry if you cannot see it - - - should be strong TP)

Once you lock this in as your True South it should be easier to find other Satellites.

Remember, after finding 77W - - - if you SonicView is like mine - - - You will be in "Dish Settings" - - "Motor" - - - you will need to hit the red button for "Store Position" that will tell the motor OK 77W is here.

Also, remember that most of the satellites in the ARC are linear only 61.5, 77, 110 and 119 are circular and not much is ITC on those birds. Thus make sure the DISEqC for each Satellite is set correctly based on the port you have it plugged into.

Let's get on 77W and go from there.
