Question Pointing Galxy 19

Trying to point galaxy 19 my signal is always 52% and quality 0% .
1- Using V8 Finder to detect maximum signal, At Elevation and azimuth constant the Skew doesn't improve my signal.
So, I changed the altitude and azimuth to see and
2- Altitude and Elevation doesn't affect the signal. 52 to 54% and quality always 0% !
3- If I do a full scan on Galaxy 19
a list of channel is displayed after a full scan on galaxy 19
00007 gal 19 04c80 V 29850
00008 gal 19 04881 V 29990
Any idea to find what is wrong in my installation ?

The signal at 52 just tells you that the LNB is working not that you are receiving anything.
The fact that Q = 0 means you are not locked onto the satellite at all.

Is this your first time at aiming a dish? Perhaps you can fill us in on all the equipment you are using.

OTA, CM4221HD, 3410 amp, 4 way split, HW-150 PVR.
FTA, Openbox S9, 33” dish, PLL LNBF. Stab 90HH.

the frequencies are re-used across the different satellites. pointing the dish looking for maximum signal strength will likely lead you to be pointed at the strongest satellite which is probably Anik F1R. Galaxy 19 isn't strong compared to it's neighbors such as Galaxy 3C, Anik F1R, Anik F2, Ciel 2, etc. No channels will be found by your receiver this way.

starting with making sure the LNB settings are input correctly, program a transponder manually into your receiver from the lists found online for Galaxy 19 such as "lyngsat". Then use the receiver to monitor that transponder signal, and slowly (1 degree per movement, pause for 15 seconds each time) pan the antenna left or right until a lock is achieved. When lock is achieved, Quality reading will be non-zero.

use compass and satbeams website to find starting angle(azimuth) for this process. use "signal strength" bar on receiver to track satellite arc(elevation) as it should respond to all signals in a very rough fashion.

Good luck, patience is key.

what is your location and what antenna are you trying to align?

Take a look at ricardo's geo-orbit archive:

Try 11960 V 22000 , it’s the strongest transponder that i can receive! About 75-80% on a 36” dish.
