Sorry they're blurry. Note I messed with azimuth, elevation, and tilt for over an hour, and 2 different LNB manufacturers (which made a difference). The fine tuning bolts are very necessary. The end result were settings very close to recommended ka/ku settings for this area.
I have directv at my apartment in San Francisco just for Sunday Ticket. I have to open my window and swing around the dish every time I want to watch, so I basically have to pray for good weather on Sunday's or really bundle up to avoid freezing
Anyway, I was probably the only person disappointed that Sunday Ticket moved from Mpeg2 to Mpeg4 this year, because my window is not big enough for a slimline, so I have to stick with the 18X20.
Obviously I'm thrilled about the potential for making my 3lnb into a slimline. But I do have a few questions. I'm a bit concerned about getting a good signal on 99 and 103 b/c my 101 signal right now is only about 85-90. Also, you mentioned a difference in the LNB manufacturers...I just ordered one from Ebay...which one gave you better results? Also, I know I'm supposed to secure the LNB to the arm with self tapping screws...what size did people use? Finally...what are the tuning bolts that you talk about? Are you talking about the elevation and tilt on the back of the 3lnb?
Thanks for the help, and sorry for the stupid questions.
