Can I turn my Quad dish 90degrees to receive vertical signals ?
Hoping you can help me out here. I live at the north end of Baffin Island (Pond Inlet, 72.68N, 77.97W) and signal strength on the A Sat (of a 75cm eliptical) can be tuned to a max of about 45%. When I originally tuned it in I was able to get a few HD channels but they were temperamental, flicking in & out and were lost altogether after the first wind.
What I'd like to do is use a second 75cm eliptical to hone in on the B sat (F2), the first dish being used soley to pick up the A sat (F1). Is it a simple case of running a cable from the A outlets of dish one to input 1 on my 530 and another cable from the B outlets of the 2nd dish to input 2 ?
Or, do I need a switch to do this and /or take advantage of the PVR cabalities ?
Today we were getting about 34% (using a second dish & without fine tuning) on the B sat and picture on the 700 channels (told that these were horizontal signal channels) but a negligible signal (16/red) on the vertical signal channels like 276 & 350. If I'm not able to get the vertical signals is it possible/likely that turning the dish 90 degrees would have the effect of increasing the vertical signals and decreasing the horizontal signals ?
Any advice on this and I would be mighty obliged.
