I upgraded to a hopper 3 setup looking at the eastern arc. I am in south central Kentucky. Do these signal levels look on par?

Thanks

I’m not expecting anything I’m just asking if these signal levels look normal given my setup and location

What I want to know is: how did you bring up that display? (I'm new to the CUI) Even my installer didn't check that display.

Diagnostic screen (home button 3 times), #3 for dish, #5 for test installation - aka a check switch

I just tried that on my Hopper Duo, and that screen did not look like the pictures in the first post. I have never seen that display on a Wally, either. Is that just a Hopper 3 thing?

My bad, that's the send status screen. If you hit 1 on the Diagnostic screen, then drop down 1 and hit 7 for Send Status. Step one checks connectivity, step 2 checks signal. I was wrong last night. Too much Bandanna BBQ and too many Corona's for dinner lol. (FWIW Step 3 sends that data to Dish)

Thanks. I just used that screen, and I found out that my internet connection is actually slightly faster than I thought it was. :)

I don't have a Hopper. Can someone explain how to read that screen? I assume the satellite it's looking at is the top of the screen. Then the chart I get stumped on. Transponder #'s in first row, then subsequent rows are levels (I guess at four different times)? Then what's the 9 in the first column, second row in the first picture?

That's the tuner number, I'm guessing. The chart is much simpler on a Hopper Duo or Wally, with only two rows of signal readings. (two tuners)

Doc, the thing that threw me the 1st time was the high bar/low reading at my dads several years ago. But it seems to just be a Dish thing.

The numbers on the left going down are tuners, the ones on top are transponders
