When I did this I also made a start of cleaning up the horrific mess the third party installers had made. I should have done so a long time ago, but never had the time to devote to it. I took some "before" pictures, I'll have to post them when I'm done and have the "after". If there's a hall of fame for ugly install jobs, the before picture might be in the running. :)

Thanks to continue following up with your progress. I hate those same idiots as you do.

If that's the best anyone's got, even my 'after' might still win! :D Imagine nearly 100 coaxes and cat5 cables coming down from the ceiling in a huge mass that ends in a giant tangle, with only 3/4 of them tagged.

One final update. I still had some odd issues once in a while with pixellation and signal dropouts on the 103ca sat, turned out I had three problems, the aforementioned misaligned dish and damaged jumper cables, also a bad LNB. Since replacing the LNB a couple weeks ago everything has been great, my signals are all mid 90s on all sats, channel changes happen without the annoying "searching for signal" for 5-6 seconds like I sometimes saw on certain channels, picture is perfect all the time on all receivers.

Thanks to everyone who offered help and suggestions!
