    I have 95-97 on all other transponders and sats on my SL3 (non swm) on my H24. What am I doing wrong?

    Can you post your signal strengths for all of the transponders and satellites?

    Unfortunately I left the house for the day (golf) but I've been talking with VOS over PM and we think it's a bad cable, BBC, or receiver. I'll try replacing them.

    Also do you know which satellite the BBC is responsible for?

    They are for Ka-lo, so they're for 103 & 99.

    You can check the "test channels" [up in the 95xx].

    Specifically 99(c) tps. 1-14, 99(s) tps. 15-24, 103(cb) tps. 1-14, and 103(s) tps. 15-24 use the Ka B-band.

    Thanks for the info. This leads me to believe that the BBC works and it may be the LNB it cabling.

    "It might" be as easy as changing connections on the LNB to another one.

    Switching to another input on the LNB fixed it.

    Thanks guys,
    Kevin

    Edit: Thanks to the Mod that fixed the typo in the thread title. :D
