well, played around with dish,,,, of course I had to mess with the aim,,, got some weaker channels better,,,,,, but then then some strong channels got weaker,,,,, pretty easy to really tie things in a knot,,, especially for a guy like me who can not leave things alone,,,,,,,,,may start from beginning, like a new install,,,, I set the tilt angle a 79, and never moved that,, may try that,,, like I  said, can't leave things alone,,,, I miss the signal audio tone on H21 receiver,,, in the old round dish days,, that was a nice helper The H20 has it, may use it for test outing  #3,,,

Did you watch the video and pay attention to the "Dithering Process" ? It is very important for those last moves.

I used my TV screen and turned the dither screw to the left, counter clockwise, until my signal basically went to down to 80 on one of the good transponders. Then you slowly rotate it back clockwise thru the high reading and then kept going until you get 80 again.

While you are doing this you are counting the numbers on the screw to see exactly how far you turned it. Then you rotate it counter clockwise  back half way and tighten it down. Do this in the side to side and elevation directions.

I never messed with the tilt / skew.

yup, sorta' did that fine tune process,, but I got all hung up on those weak numbers that may not even matter,,,,, looking for that perfect score  100-s across the board,,,,,,

I am thinking the LNB-3 is working fine,,,,or as well as the LNB-5 on old dish,,,,, ordered the grounding blocks, will bond to house ground, and will aim again when I install that,, or will aim several times before that,, this is a challenge now,,,,all other tinkering jobs will have to wait,,,

There are always some funky numbers.

Take a look here, post # 12,  and you will see my readings when I had a Slimline 5. Disregard the 110 and 119 readings for the 3.
