Did you call SD and tell them you changed the LNB? They need to update your account to reflect it and send an updated channel map to the receivers on your account.

nhlphl - no, the boresight on the dish is on F2 (111 W) and F1/G1 (107 W) are caught on the offset - so get F2 dialed in and then fine tune skew to max out F1/G1.

Using a 6XX receiver with the old quad map on the new LNB will result in the inability to pick up anything off of F1. Since F1 has almost all the SD channels, your experience is entirely expected.

I've honestly had the best results aiming dishes using dishpointer.com coordinates, a compass, and a plumb mast. Smartphone apps are really just useful to ensure you're setting up where there's LOS.
