My Bay Area Numbers are similar. Seems California getting short-changed. Maybe just last to be tweaked.


There was a long discussion about this when D10 launched. Bay Area readings were lower then, too. One theory had to do with the prevalence of CalAmp LNBs on dishes installed in California. My dish was new at the time and was realigned when we began getting D10 signals, but before the satellite went live. The tech was skilled, but he could not get signal levels into the 80's.

However, most of us use our dishes to watch programming, not signal level meters. I haven't had any reception problems with D10 with levels in the 70's. That's all that really matters.

Perhaps DirecTV could save on legal costs if they just forwarded this forum to the FCC! :D

Everything looked great yesterday, but now transponder 9 is 24 and 10 is 0 (the others are all in the 80s or 90s). I suspect there may be some testing in progress.

So, when does this thread close? Time for a mad dash to 10,000 posts!

Will probably leave this thread open while testing completes.

At first sign of "live" channels from D12, we move on ... :)

That is if we all behave. With D10/D11 the thread strayed to off-topic after first signal and got closed.

Would like to leave open until Wednesday 6am ET, so we have a thread from 2008 announce to "live", but that will depend on staying on topic.

Mine dropped to 37 on tp9 and 33 on tp10. Last night before bed they were all 92 and over. Glad I'm not alone.

If you're seeing that across all of the Ka transponders, then your dish is a bit off. Not much, but a bit. I don't know that it's enough to worry about, though.

Baseball legend Rogers Hornsby once said, "People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."

For Sixto, I think we can change that to "I stare out the window and wait for another satellite launch." :D

9 & 10 are definitely weird today.

66 & 34 for me. I guess they're still tweaking b/c last night and earlier this morning they were in the 90's

SoCal, like most of the west coast, also getting numbers in the 60's and 70's. I am not worrying about it. D10 had the same numbers. Once actual channels started broadcasting, the numbers started increasing.
