I have a friend that has decided to put up a 1000.4 WA dish. At the same time he upgraded from a Dish 500 and some 510 receivers to the VIP211K's. There are 2 issues. He aimed it to 119 with the outer LNB's covered with foil. Pole is set to within 0.2 degrees plumb both directions. Issue #1. Then he ran a switch test. It came back as a DPP Twin, the 129 shows as NC, yet it shows a green signal bar on the signal strength page for Echostar 129. (and 119 and 110 also) The switch test sequence is a 3 step process. On my identical install, the test is a 4 step process and mine identifies as a DPP WA.4 and all three sats are marked as WA.4 He had to put a DPP44 on there to get things working for all 3 sats, this bypasses the LNB internal switching I believe. With the DPP44 all is good but he shouldnt need the switch on there all the time. Is this a bad LNB? Issue #2. The 119 and 110 signals are 75 to 80. 129 started out as a 29, in frustration he flexed the western side of the dish with his hands (not so much to bend it) and while he was flexing it, the 129 levels would climb to over 50. He decided to try peaking on 129, but unless he flexes it, he can't get it better than a 40. The other sats stay at least 70 after peaking on 129 to the high of 40. Is the reflector out of shape? I looked at it and I don't see any dents or creases.
