|Witchdoctor||BTW, there are 15 different files for the two Bell sats. All I'm trying to figure out is which one or two would be the best to download and install in my meter.|

Birdog ver 2.5 and BellTV
I've been out of the loop for a while, and after getting out of the hospital after almost loosing my left arm am planning on getting back into doing the smaller sat dishes. I've had numerous people ask me to re aim their dish with my meter, but it's having trouble at times locking on the signal from either 91 or 82.
I've noticed quite a few files for the birdog on their website and am scratching my head over which ones are the best to use.
Any help would be appreciated.

Satellite Finder App for iPAD
First my apologies if this has been covered elsewhere however after some searching I could not find anything.
I am looking for an app for the iPAD that could be used to determine if I have a clean line of sight to the Bell ExpressVu satellites. The concept being it would superimpose the satellites on the screen image presented by the camera looking skyward. I have a location in the Midland Ontario area that I am very interested in switching from Rogers cable to Bell ExpressVu.

|Allan B||Guide info is/was always on TP6 on 91.|

|jdevlin||The guide all loads from the same place. The SD channels in the guide do not come from a different place than the HD channels. The actual channels come from different satellites but not the guide info.|

|Jimsathome||That's one of the issues, he's not getting any SD Channels on the Guide.|

|jdevlin||If he is getting the guide it must be able to see the satellite. Could the trees have grown and be starting to block the signal? Maybe only when it is windy?|

Thanks for chiming in. My friend isn't at his Cabin very often so it's tough to get him to check things in a timely manner. (And again he's mechanical so he's like me to assist here as its "electrical".)
As I said above: its 6-7 hour travel time each way depending on traffic, Ferries, etc., so I can't easily pop over to check things out.
Can you give me your best guess if it's Dish alignment / hardware connections, or the receiver? He's planning to go up next week (with out of town family guests) and would buy a new receiver if that's the remedy. Any recommended vendors other than Visions in Metro Vancouver? (He doesn't like them.)
Thanks for the assist.

When he push guide button what channel group is showing? You can setup favorites lists and each push of the guide buttons cycles through the list. Make sure it show 'all' or 'all sub'. That would explain the guide.
Channels can also be blocked out using the lock features.

Is it a single receiver install or multiple ?
Has he run a Check Switch ?
What are signal levels on both Sats ?
Have you checked the connections particularly outside, also check for damage to the RG6.
