    Probably should post a sticky with instructions on how to refresh receivers.

    I have a R22-100 with a SWM 5L dish and I'm seeing some channels I get not highlighted on the guide. I still have SD programming. Is this normal?

    Looking over my signal levels and posts around the board, it appears as though D12 doesn't have signal levels as strong as D10 and D11.

    For instance, if I average all of my signal readings together, I get these numbers (note: I don't average in transponders that appear to be for spotbeams on 101 and 119)

    101 -> 97.7
    110 -> 97
    119 -> 99.1
    99(c) -> 89.6
    103(ca) -> 81.8
    103(cb) -> 88.9

    If I were to look at these signal strengths pre-D12, I would think the dish was aligned pretty well (though not fantastically), so I'm not quite sure why I'm getting D12 readings that are about 7 points lower.

    Does anybody have a hypothesis for this? The only thing I can think of is that it is because D12 is transmitting in a higher frequency band. I just peaked the dish myself yesterday, but this was the best I could get. Do these numbers maybe give an idea of which plane I should adjust? Or should I just get someone to come peak the dish, or just leave it as is?

    DirecTV hasn't setup the MSNBC logo for the HD version of the channel in QuickTune. Something still to work on.

    103(cb) == D10
    99(c) == D11
    103(ca) == D12

    Thanks! Just was trying to figure out where most of the HD channel signals come from.
