Alright guys, lets see everyone's setup. I know you guys must have some impressive dish/antenna configurations and I would definetly like to see the hardware.

Post pics of at least your Antennas, DBS, C-band, Ku-band, etc.

if you want you can post pics of your TV's, Sat/Cable/OTA recievers, sound setups, etc. I will be posting my pics shortly, just have to find a place that will host them. I do not really have much stuff, but will post what I have

Is the little roof on the side of the house one of the requirements when looking for a place? ;)

Do you find you get more gain out of the Dish500 with a single LNB? I tried this but I ended up with the same signal strength. The only way I figured it would help is if I could modify an adapter to move the LNB out a bit due to the 20 inch dish having a different focal point than the 18 inch dish.

Your neighbors must love you with your christmas tree outside! ;) I used to mess with my brother's next door neighbor at his apartment. His dish was right there next to the walkway as you walk through the apartments. I used to accidently hang his dog's metal food bowl on the LNB all the time.

I'll try to get pictures of my farm up soon... it'll have to wait until the weekend. It gets dark at 5:30p now....

Actually yea I get 125 + on most tp's (that dish is pointing to 61.5 ) and thats even off of a 942 :) the only tps that are lower (100's) are the tps coming off of rainbow1. aka Echo1 :) The neighbors dont mess with it at all they know that is someone touches it they die :) as much as i have been out there peaking things and messing with things..

So did you use a Dish300 mount assembly and just put a Dish500 "pan" on it or is that Dish500 assembly and pan?

No, but its an awesome bonus.. unfortunaetly, this house does not face directly south like the last place.. but its pretty close..

The entire 2nd floor is slightly smaller then the first, so I have this roof ledge all the way around.
