Yea but I doubt they would peak a satellite signal thats only in the 60s.


Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

didn't notice anybody suggest that if they are only using one receiver at the cabin that there is no need to keep the splitter as part of the circuit....

Let's pause for a moment and get back on topic. Refer to my entry in this post about how to align your dish. Just be sure to enter 101W Directv 4S or scroll down to the LNB settings and pick your LNB from the list. Once you enter the zip code for wherever you are located it will give you all the settings you need to align your dish. Remember that you are aiming at something the size of a school bus about 22 thousand miles away, so you cannot be sloppy with your settings. You can use your receiver's meter to do the alignment. If you cannot see the TV from where you have the dish, you will need someone watching the TV and telling you when you have the best signal. Many have done this successfully. You should be able to do the same.
