HipKat had an internal DISH tech visit couple days ago along with his supervisor. They were from a DISH office in St Charles Missouri. They replaced LNB 119, 110, 118, and 129. All signals are a little higher now with the exception of 110. It is a few points lower for some reason. They didn’t have a clue why the Check Status test was stalling out at 60% but I figured it out. See post #60.They look good, actually. 119 is a bit low, but these Hybrid Slimline LNB's just do read lower than the older DPP and DPP Style Hybrids did for some reason. I'm sure the other installers on here would agree.
On a DPP Western Arc, I'd see readings closer to the high 70's for 119, closer to 80 for the 110 and close to 60 for the 129. It's refreshing the rare times I get to (re)point a DPP LNBF. The fact it took so long to run the Check Status is concerning though. That LNB may have some issues or a component, connector, etc in the cabling could be failing.
