Thanks for the reply again, one last thing before I drag out the ladder. I went and found an old viewsat receiver at my local good will and also want to add this into the mix. What I want to know is I plan to use the viewsat to point the dish, what settings need to be set on the sat menu to ensure I can locate 97. Also what are some high TP's to scan under. Thanks in advance.

I will assume its the Viewsat Extreme that you have and that it does not have hacker firmware.
In the Antenna Setup Menu, settings are:

Satellite…………Galaxy 19 97W
LNB Power…… On
LNB Type………Standard
LNB Freq……….10750
22Khz……………OFF
TP Freq…………12084 ( EBRU TV )
DiseqC………….None
Motor…………….OFF

The TP 12084 should be in the receiver.
Also Galaxy 19 may be under a different name, just make sure it is listed as 97W.

If your dish is still pointing at 101 then 97W is just about 1-2 mm to the left. Move slowly and carefully.
Ideally you should have a monitor at the dish to watch the the S and Q meters in the antenna setup menu. They will change from red to green as you home in and reach max signal. Also then adjust the elevation slightly to peak signal. Lastly rotate the LNBF for max signal as well.

have fun.....

I re-flashed the view-sat to factory firmware to hopefully ensure the list was correct and up to date as far as the firmware revisions went, and also to ensure that if it was used for any unlawful purpose previously that it would be erased. I actually am still at 101 but need to get to the roof to make any adjustments. I do plan to have a TV on hand so I can see all fields and signal levels as I am pointing the dish.

I thank you once again for all the info. Very much appreciated!

I will keep everyone posted when I get some good weather to do the re-point.

that is one of the best LNBF's I have ever used. It's perfectly matched to the starchoice round dishes, which give excellent results on G19 and others.

when you say "add the viewsat" to the mix", do you mean having two receivers connected to this dish? You will need to get an LNBF with multiple outputs in order to have multiple receivers due to polarity/voltage switching. a splitter won't do.
I'm fairly sure your LNBF only has one output, right?

Exactly, I still plan to use one receiver only, but my pansat is just sluggish at times and when I was at my local goodwill I decided for $5.00 all take a risk and use the viewsat instead and retire the pansat as a spare.

get a dual LNBF.
then you can use both of your receivers.
One line to the pansat.
One line to the viewsat.

Good Luck,
Al

m3repair, were you successful in setting up your 24" dish for TV Trwam on 97w?
SC 24" dish will catch many but not all transponders on Galaxy 19. Unfortunately TV Trwam is on a weaker transponder. I suggest using at minimum 33" dish. When aiming your dish, aim it at strong transponder like 12084V on which you will find Ebru tv, Polskie Radio Jedynka, Polskie Radio Trojka. TV Trwam is on 12184H. To receive Galaxy 19 any receiver will do Viewsat or Pansat. Depending on your preference there is only a handful of watchable channels on Galaxy 19, so it does not matter how quickly the receiver changes channels. You won't have much flipping to do. Enjoy.

I was able to use a 24inch dish for 97 but of course it wasn't enough to work exactly as I had liked. So I opted for a 30 dish in the mean time. If the 30 works well enough I will leave it as is. If not I will opt for a 33. Trying to keep this particular setup as low cost as possible as its only for a handful of english/the channel I need anyways.

When weather permits try tweaking the dish on a weak transponder rather than a strong one. With a strong TP you can actually not be centered on the sat and miss the weaker TPs.

especially true on a sat like 97W Ku where the transponders are all using the DVB-S delivery system. DVB-S has a lot of room for 'slop', but DVB-S2 does not.

Not to revive a old thread, but does anyone know where TV Polonia went on Galaxy 19? it was at 12184 transponder but I have rescanned a few times to no avil, lyngsat says its still active there and the last update to that webpage was October 7th 2016. Anyone else want to confirm its actually gone or is it a configuration issue on my end. Thanks in advance

TVP Polonia is not scanning in on tp 12184 for me either but does scan in as encrypted on tp 11867.
