On an install, I was able to lock onto G18 (Horizontal) on some transponders but not all. (Signal Strength = 98) When I ran ID scan, it failed. I am connecting to a Unity receiver and all is working as it should so I know I am locked onto the right satellite. I'm trying to figure out if the problem is with my meter or with me not understanding how to use it. Any ideas?

Maybe the Satbuddy info on that satellite is out of date or the content has been shifted around recently.
