Hi all, It only appeared to have the 105 lnb. It was set on a deck with a bungee cord, and the coax looked to be running through the back door. It was surely 36", and not 26". I will try to get a better shot from over the opposite fence, or go covert and get close up's with measurements.
Scott, I thought that other than new locals, Superdish was to allow us to be able to get HD.
While I understand some channels would go to 105 eventually, what channels would we lose If we were to go to Superdish right away? And why? It wouldn't be a big deal for me if it was just international channels or something like that.
I'm also curious as to what dish I'd need in Southwest Wisconsin. Type 1 or 2. Maybe you have to take what you get.
Yes RJS what you say is true. But at this time the only thing receivable by anyone with a SuperDISH or people working to get a signal on 105 (ie Claudes Poormans SuperDish) will only get channel 7000 (The welcome to SuperDISH screen) while the HD channels from 61.5 and 148 may be there they have not been made available to the public yet.
The Channels you lose if you upgrade from 148 or 61.5 to SuperDish (Not including internationals or extra locals) are as follows.
Good Samaritan Network
Panhandle Area Ed. Consortium
We should remember that the SuperDISH is not available publiclly yet so the lack of channels available to those with Mock SuperDish's should not surprise anyone.
That could have been a StarBand dish that is used for two way internet service but after taking a closer look at the picture it seems as if it does not have the transmitter to transmit the data to the satellite so it may be a dish that someone has rigged up to pick up certain stations. It also appears that there is only one wire coming from the dish that is from the lnbf.
