Hey all, have a few questions here about signal levels and installation of a 2nd dish. My dish somehow fell out of allignment, so I had to fix that. However, I haven't looked at the signal meter since what apparently was a software update, so I do not know what is considered good vs bad. It also seems like channels are taking a little longer to tune in.

Here are my signals:
119/01: 81
119/11: 61

110/01: 57
110/11: 60

129/01: 30
129/11: 30

I am in Oklahoma, and I have a Dish 1000. I have 2 different LNB units - 1 has 110 & 119 in it and is a DishPlus? (i think), the other is a single for 129 that is a Dish Pro. I remember during the installation the installer ran a wire from the 129 to the 119 LNB to hook it up, if i remember correctly.
My question is this: I have a Dish500 left over from my pre-HD install. Can I move the 129LNB into it (leaving it wired the same) and aim that dish at 129 to improve my signal?

Thanks for any help!
