I have a mobile home in Florida and also a home here in Ontario. I have a 75 cm dish on both premises. Both have the old LNB.... or whatever it is called. I am losing more and more channels here in Ontario. Can I get the new upgraded LNB on my home here in Ontario but not on the Florida........ will Florida get any tv reception after Sep 23 on the old LNB. I take my 630 pvr back and forth...... it has worked wonderful up to now. Are you confused? because I sure am........ thanks old or older lady...
What you need is the latest LNB (A SHAW75E-G1). It's the "thing" the dish bounces the signal into, and the cables connect to on the dish assembly that run to your receiver. Call Shaw Direct and advised them you've still got the old Quad LNB and are losing channels, and need a Xku LNB to get the G1 Satellite. The Dish receives signals in Canada from 3 Satellites F1R, G1 and F2. About 50 miles or so below the US /Canada border in Ontario the signal from the G1 Satelitte fades, as it was deliberately set to do so as their were complaints Snowbirds were receiving Canadian TV in the USA. Shaw Direct has been moving a lot of channels off F1R and onto G1 to show they are making an effort to correct this. You can't get anything off G1 in Florida, but you can still get what's on F1R and F2 Satellite.
Shaw Direct will send a technician with the SHAW75E-G1 Xku LNB and install it if you are in a coverage area in Ontario => and not too remote. Shaw Direct has been migrating a lot of their Standard definition Channels to only High Definition and moving a lot of the channel numbers to G1 and F2 Satellites when they do this - dropping them off F1R.
You will need to buy a SHAW75E-G1 Xku LNB from Craigslist, Kijiji, eBay, or an independent installer and take it with you (and your 630) when you go to Florida. A 7/16 inch wrench is needed to remove /install the Cables, and a large Phillips Scree Driver is all that's needed to remove and reinstall the LNBs once the Cables have been removed. If you can handle it great, but maybe someone in Florida can assist. It's an easy swap. You will lose about half of what's available (depending on what channels you have), but for some - a bit of Canadian TV is better than a whole lot of US TV . (Especially with their political theater dominating it every night.)
(PS => I think MikeDRiley misspoke when he said "You definitely need the newer LNB to get the 3rd dish in Ontario". I think he meant to say "You definitely need the newer LNB to get the 3rd Satellite
in Ontario" )
