To get my SAT-HD100 working .....


I had a pre-existing round dish on 101. After installing a 22khz multiswitch and connecting the second dish I aimed it too at 101.


Then I went back in the house and on the receiver setup settings I selected Oval 2 Sat and selected the SAT A (1st dish) got good signal which verfied the LNB and switch was working for my original dish. Selected SAT B (2nd dish) and verfied signal strength was present and that the LNB and switch were working.


Went back outside.


Dropped the 2nd dish elevation by 5 degrees and swung it west 20 degrees and BAM ... got signal in the mid 30's (xpndr 28). A few trips back and forth into the house to fine tune and now I have mid-70's on the 119 and mid-80's on the 101 (like I always had).


This worked for Minneapolis.


Thanks to everyone who had posted in the past on how to make all this work.


Bob


Hint: Mark off the basic compass points with a marker of some sort on your antenna post and then mark a "guide" mark on the sleeve assembly that rotates on the post so you can get an idea of how many degrees you need to move.

The receiver doesn't know the difference between the 2 dishes. Selecting Sat A and then Sat B does not switch from one dish to the other when you had them both set up pointing at 101. When only 1 18" dish is set up and pointed at 101, you can switch from Sat A to Sat B and still get signal strength, with or without a multiswitch.
