Had a DirecTV tech replace my LNB and now my signal levels seem a lot different than before.

 

Satellite transponders (32 total at 101º)
1-8  97 95  97  96  97  99  97 100
9-16  97  96  98  97  97  100  97  100
17-24  97  100  97  95  96  99  97  98
25-32  96  96  97  0 99 99  96  100

Satellite transponders (16 total at 99º(s)) [or 99º(B)]
1-8  0  0  0  0  95  0  NA NA
9-16  NA  NA  NA  NA  NA  NA  2  98 
17-24  60  77  99  99  76  65  0  0

Satellite transponders (14 total at 99º©) [or 99º(a)]
1-8  92  95  89  95  95  95  88  92
9-16  94  94  87  94  94  95  NA NA

Satellite transponders (16 total at 103º(s)) [or 103º(a)]
1-8  32  67  0  87  NA NA
9-16 NA NA NA NA NA NA 97  94 
17-24  86  93  96  96  17  19  95  96

Satellite transponders (16 total at 103º(ca)) 
1-8 NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA
9-16  96  93  95  93  93  89 91  89
17-24  89  87  95  91  94  87  95  94

Satellite transponders (14 total at 103º(cb)) [or 103º(b)]
1-8  95  95  89  94  92  95  86  92
9-16  91  94  88  94  89  91  NA NA
17-24 NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA

 

I am mostly concerned with the very low numbers on 99s and 103s and all the readings below 90 on the other sats.

 

I am in New Jersey.

Those look fine to me.  The 99s and 103s are spot beam sats and I suspect that the high values there are your spots.

The "S" satellites are Spot beams and the numbers are always funky on those.

 

My 99s is 0 0 0 0 0 0  N/A N/A

N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A N/A 0 15

100 98 0 15 0 0 0 0

 

Your signals strengths are excellent.

Yup, those numbers are good.

Maybe we're in different parts of NJ, but I get much higher readings on 103(s):

 

1-8        78 90 0 97 NA NA NA NA

9-16      NA NA NA NA NA NA 99 95

17-24    97 97 99 97 72 69 96 96

25-32    All NA

 

Everything else is pretty similar though.

My sat values are higher as well, so a slight tweaking should help.

But, if you aren't having any problems, then leave it alone.

Anyone know what is on those transponders?

 

My "locals" are from NYC but I am much closer to Philadelphia.

103(s) is a spot beam satellite.  if any transponder is aimed at your city. it will be a very high number.  the others does not matter.

It depends where you are located. and what sats you are referring to.  the closer you are to the sats, the better the "values"

Probably explains it. I'm only 15 minutes from NYC, so we're obviously in different parts of NJ.
