everytime i see a post about signal strength i think of what transponder are they talking about. some are quite high some are not even working. does any one know what transponders are truly dead. and which ones are preferred to see the signal strength for that sat? and is there a up to date list of satellite-transponder-channel list? :hatsoff: thanks!

well, we use to say 11 & 12 but on 110 TP12 is spotbeam (only projectd to specific areas) so it may read high or none

11 is the best

11 & 12 for 119, 11 & 22 for 110. Used to be 11 & 12 for both, but 110-12 is now a spotbeam. Never use a spotbeam for peaking (several reasons). I always check both odd & even to ensure there's no cable issues with the DishPro high-band (even transponders are at 1650-2150MHz on the wire).

EDIT: Iceberg - you beat me by one minute, but I explained more. :D

home transponders

sat 119 home transpnders to check signal strength are t/19 and t/20.
sat 110 t/20 and t/21. Once you get good signal strength on these transponders, run the ck sw to lock it into your switch matrix.

Practically speaking, 'home' transponder for each satellite should be that what is spooling software, because most initial setups going with new receivers. If you interesting I could post a table.
