    Hello

    I'm trying to get Satellite C - 110, and can't. I just added my 3rd LNB, so I'm wondering if I have the wiring incorrect, or something else wrong.

    I get 101 and 119 at 90%+.

    Thanks

    What sort of LNB did you use for the SatC (middle) slot? You need a special "SatC Kit" that includes a special LNB, short cables, and combiner to integrate the SatC LNB signal with the 119-deg SatB LNB signal before your multiswitch.

    With special Emphasis on the word Special

    Litzdog911 is correct. A regular LNB will not work.

    This is now resolved.

    I had the two coax cables for "Antenna B" in my multiswitch backwards. Once I switched them, I get 81 for signal strength on Satellite C.
