    If the receiver would not work with their multiswitch LNB, I suspect the 13V/18V switching which also powers the multiswitch and LNB is blown. Glad you got it working.

    Maybe it depends where you are. I peak on 101. Then switch to the weakest transponder on 99S (out of town LIL transponder) and peak it. When finished (about 5 minutes), I have 95-97 on 99c, 94-97 on 103ca and 96-98 on 103cb. 101 is all 100's. I always used this method on slimlines with success, and used it on my homebrew 1M dish which I am using now. I would not mind having a high dollar meter that reads both signal and quality, but for aligning friends dishes, and experimenting with my own, I just dont do enough of them to warrant to cost.

    Yeah those meters are a bit expensive. Totally agreed again. I was not my intention to state that it couldn't be done, just that if you don't have experience... lol to quote the topic, you can be pulling your hair out! :lol:
