After trying to aim 61.5 w/ a VIP211 for a couple days and getting very finnikey signals, I think I know why, but could someone verify? I am used to using my old DP301, and just grabbing the dish and fanning it up & down in the general are untill I see a little blip on the signal bar, then going back & fine tuning, then locking everything down. Done this a million times, no problems. W/ the VIP receiver, I would get the blip after trying FOREVER, and it would almost freeze, then go away, and I couldn't find it again for a long time, then same thing, but could never get a steady signal. I've noticed on the old DP301, if you push the dish a little bit, the signal refreshes almost instantly showing the drop or gain in strength. I just noticed w/ the VIP211 it takes a couple seconds to refresh. Is this why I've had no luck using the hillbilly method for pointing? It only samples at a rate of roughly 2 seconds. What is happening then is I'm passing right over where it needs to be and it never registers on the signal bar. Guess I'll have to pull out the ol' compass & level and try it that way, moving it bit by bit and leaving it for a few seconds to register. Seems like features would get better on the new equipment, not worse.
