Thanks…. Will try to repoint !It is possible to have the dish aimed to only receive one satellite. Since only see 82 It is likely you need to re-aim the dish.
Until you get the proper aim for both satellites you will not get all the channels.
Interesting…. Will check this out ! Thanks !It's not uncommon for the 91 LNB to be aimed at 82 or visa versa. If that happens, the LNB aimed at the wrong satellite will not be picked up in the check switch.
Quoting myself, just to close out this thread - hate to see issues raised with no resolution....
Owners started getting iffy reception on channels, then only a handful of channels would work, then ultimately nothing. Visual inspection of cables seem intact, and view of sky was cleared of branches, even though dish had a very clear view to begin with. Owner tested signals (prior to my arrival) indicating strong signal on satellite 91, but middling to nothing on 82.
We then replaced a feeder (2 of them at base of dish), but no change. Swapped all 3 with no change, so presume they work. Tests of the signal during these swaps showed 100% solid on 91, and 0% solid on 82 on all transponders.
Looking back, that in itself seems odd to me. Is it even possible to always have 100% on 91, for hours? I would have expected some minor dips, especially as you change transponders. Makes me wonder if the problem is at the box itself.
Next part on order is a "splitter", or more accurately a "combiner" in my view as it appears to take the signal from the 2 feeders into a single cable into the cottage.
I did run a check switch after installing the DPP LNB. Even disconnected the satellite in cable at the receiver and tried another check switch after reconnecting. What are the different transponders?Any idea why on Satellite 82 transponder 5 I have the wrong satellite Nimiq 91? I currently seem to have all SD channels on 91 without any issues.Did you do a check switch with the new DPP LNB?
You should check if you're still in the coverage area if you moved to a different city in the U.S. Telesat ToolsI have moved and need a new dish to go with my Bell 9241.
The signals cross over when they reflect off the dish.Doesn't make sense to me as the azimuth (for my location) has the 91 at about 181* which is a shade west of due south and the 82 is at about 175* which is east of due south. Am I missing something?
