Quickie question that I hope you guys can help with:
I setup my dish last weekend (75cm elliptical with the new XKu LNBF direct into a DSR600 - town is Postville, Labrador) and followed the information from the Shaw website with regards to skew etc (and a couple of small adjustments to account for the difference in location between us and the closest town on the list - Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador). After trying for a while without much success, I called the helpdesk to see if they could give me any advice. The person on the other end told me to try channel 252 and so back we went. Again, we got nothing for a while then suddenly hit a sweet-spot and got 95 on the signal strength, upon which I locked it down.
So, all seemed well on the first night, bar the inability to get Sportsnet 1 and a couple of the FTA French channels in HD (not a big issue to me). However, during the last few days, although the signal on channel 2 (note, as this is advanced, I don't have 252 as the promo channel anymore) is still around 75-90, I can't get (m)any of the HD channels, including all the sports channels and the US East HD feeds.
What I'd like to know is what could be causing this. Could it be I need to adjust the skew, or the elevation or the azimuth? I know it can't be anything too major, but with the weather over the past week being in the -20's with windchill, I don't want to spend too long trying to fix it, nor lose what I have in the process. I'd appreciate any advice anyone may have.
