    SAT.TRANSPONDERS:[32 total at 101] 97-95-95-99
    Tuner: 2:97-99-100-100 Both on +
    Tuner 1= 100 + 87 - Satellite Transponder: 95 + 86-

    Tuner 2= 100 + Satellite Transponder: 56 + 100-
    Are these readings OK?

    Not sure how to read this.:confused:

    What about the signal strengths on the 99 and 103 satellites?

    Are you having any reception problems?

    No signal problems. New roof.Sat. was moved.
    I don't know what you mean about the 99 and 103 Sat.
    The only thing i see is Sat. 101 - and +

    Better if you'll post pictures - your description is ambiguous.

    The challenge in doing any review/diagnosis is that each sat has many more transponders than you reported.

    There are 3 primary satellite locations - 99, 101, and 103 degrees.

    With these multiple sats...to get a valid idea of your readings....the whole list of transponders should be reviewed.

    Here's an example...just for the 103 position from one sat (cb) - this signal comes from the D10 satellite.

    The + and - next to the 101 is to allow you to change which sat you are getting readings from.

    Yes....and the lower ones are to change to view Tuner 1 and Tuner 2 readings.
