Sorry, I've been busy with school for the last couple weeks and forgot all about my D* signal problems and such. Anyway, I see that you have new channels listed on the HD lineup for D*, and when I go to those channels I'm only getting the analog feed, on channels like BTN 220 and Discovery 278. Let me give you some numbers, and if you could, tell me if its serious complaint time.
I went outside and looked at the sats. on my apartment wall. I have a Oval 3LNBs as the main dish (Installer had it setup as 5LNB) and a WorldDirect dish that looks to be at 95 degrees (It has 2LNB, if thats what the little knobs are that point towards the dish). When I put this information in, for the first time ever, I got an errorless setup. I have the newest DirecTV HD box w/o DVR (H20) with the B-Band box, to my knowledge. My signal strengths are:
Sat 101 A Transponder 1 - 71%
Sat 119 B Transponder 22 - 65%
Sat 110 C Transponder 8 - 57%
Sat 95 (Net-1) Trans 1 - 40%
So, after setting up my correct equipment, my signal strength went nowhere, and I have no new channels. I also think my OVA HD looks better than my ESPN HD, for example. Is it serious complaint time, and when they tell me that my signal is weak because I'm an apartment with one dish for 24 rooms (I think this will happen) what do I tell them? And, am I overreacting about the new channels or should I have them right now? lastly, should I complain to my installer Directech MDU, or DirecTV directly? As always, without this forum, I would be lost. I'll try to keep up this time.
Edit: I just realized at class that my sat. setup never mentions a 103 degree sat. , when I go home, I'm going to check that out.
Edit2: I just realized that I need the 5LNB dish to decode MPEG4 signals, so this would explain my problem, unless the worlddirect 2LNB dish + my 3LNB dish = 5LNB dish. When I go home, I'm going to try and get a 103 degree signal, but I don't think I've ever got it without error. Why would direcTV install the 3LNB dish on a brand new apartment complex 2 months ago?
