    I have a Dish with 129,119,118,110
    and a seperate dish with 61.5
    Now the 118 i dont have hooked up

    Currently i am getting signal issues as i am having a hard time tuning in 129
    on that dish
    Can get 129 strong then 110 is not as strong

    Was thinking of Using the Mega Dish for just 119,110
    and then use the second dish to either keep at 61.5 or move it to 129

    I am in Port Huron Michigan 48059

    Can i use 61.5 instead of 129?
    Currently when i go on some HD Channels i see alot of channels from 129
    thats why i am asking if i can use 61.5.....?

    Please inform

    Since Detroit is you local dma, either Eastern Arc or Western Arc will work for you. If you cannot tune 129 in to the expense of 110, I would disconnect the 129 lnb and use your 1000+ dish for just 110 and 119, also, you do not have any need for 61.5 (since only your locals are probably all you may be getting there, but they are also on 129). Most HD channels have been moved off 61.5 to 72, but 129 has all so I would use the 61.5 dish and repoint to 129.

    Okay
    After a couple months of low signal strength and easy Signal loss in either a windy day or a light rain
    i spent the day modifying the set up
    as per the advice above
    i put my Dish that was at 61.5 moved it to 129 location
    and have very strong signal strength
    the type of dish is a Dish 1000...

    With my dish 1000 plus
    i also re aimed it to max signal strength
    and re hooked up sat 118 just for Cookies n Milk

    I like having 129 on a different Satellite cause then i can max out the signal on 110 sat on the 1000 plus and dont have to worry about spliting the value with 129 ...

    Very pleased with the changes
    took me maybe a 1hr

    Thanks again for the advice above it helped
