Why do I need to tune to channel 299?
I have an advanced HD600 receiver.
A few questions for the pros:
1) When setting up a dish, why do I need to tune to channel 299? Is the signal the strongest on this transponder?What would happen if I tried to tune to channel 160-185 (i.e. the NHL Center Ice package channels)? More difficult to find the channels?
2) My tripod mast is 1 5/8 inch. I have a 75E dish wth 75E LNB which requires a 2 inch mast. Do you think wrapping duct tape around the mast would work?
3) Is the 75E dish easier to find a signal compared to the 60E?
4) I need to clear some trees. If I use the angle the satellite feed support arm makes, what is the approximate real angle of the signal coming in? My understanding the angle of the signal is different than the angle of the satellite feed arm.
Any info would be much appreciated!
