Which Sats for the HD Channels
Posted 11 November 2008 - 09:22 PM
First of all, my sat is not lined up quite correctly since Hurricane Ike struck. I thought I had adjusted it but now I am sure I am still off a little. This is our first real rain storm in the last 2 months and I can't pick up any of the HD channels right now. It really isn't raining that hard either. The SD channels that are coming in via 101 are fine. I have about a 75 signal. Here are what they all look like.
101 - 78
110 - 75
119 - 80
99a - 30
99b - 0
103a - 0
103b - 40
Every now and then I can get the HD Locals(Houston) off the spot sat(which ever that is). I can't get ESPN HD at all right now so I am guessing that is coming from one of the birds that is showing 0-30. I was getting USA HD ok when I checked so that may even be another sat as well.
I realize my problem lies with a tweak or two on the sat but that just made more curious than ever as to which sats were which channels.
Any help can provide will be most appreciated.

You definitely need your dish realigned. You should have TPs on all of those sats that are in the high 80s to low 90s at least.
