okay so i ordered the 99/101/103 LNB, Alaska dish and associated back, and non-pen mount and tried to set it up today... with no luck. I've done plenty of SL3/5 installs so i know what the steps are here - tried just setting to 101 and doing 'sweeps' at different elevations one nut turn at a time - no joy. I tried this both with the dish at 0 degrees tilt (figuring that if nothing else it would at least see 101 and i could start dialing things in from there) and 60 deg which is what the SL3 tilt setting is for my area.
my questions are:
does anyone see something i'm missing here- the SWM8 that i was using for this is what all my receivers use normally and once back connected to my SL3 LNB works fine.
Is there a different skew setting for the alaska/hawaii dishes? if so how does one figure out what it is (zip is 07086)
the only thing i can possibly think of is a bad LNB out of the box?
