Moved the dish 5’ to the north and signal improved greatly. Much better than before. Actually tried one other spot before it’s final location. I spent two hours trying to tune in the satellite. I finally read to tune to channel 700 to tune in the dish. I was using 252 and was getting nowhere. All good now.

I recently replaced the LNB on my Shaw satellite dish. I have a 600 series receiver. I cannot get any picture or sound and the guide won't download. I have good signal strength. Is the Essential 600 series receiver compatible with a new LNB or do I have to upgrade to an Essential 800, too?

If you updated to a new LNB that would give you access to all 3 satellites where before you only had access to programming off of the original 2 satellites you will need to give Shaw Direct a call to get your channel map updated.
