Columbus, Tupelo Locals partially working
Posted 07 September 2005 - 09:46 PM
Channel 4, 9, 12, 14, 27, and 45.
I had to move the dish because of an overgrown tree and now that I've reconnected it, I get everything perfect, except for Ch. 4 and 12. I know these locals are spot beamed and the signal is probably just a little harder to find for these than others, but I would think that all locals are all coming from the same transponder. THe only thing different is that 9/14/27/45 all show coming from the same area, Tupelo. And 4/12 show coming out of Columbus....but the signal can't be that "tight" can it? Or could it be from 2 transponders?
Does anyone know which transponder(s) these are coming from and I'll check on my signal strenght meter?
By the way, This is D*TV.

Is there anyway for the receiver to give the infomration about which transponder it is looking for? When I put it on Ch. 4 or 14, I get the typical "Searching for satellite signal" screen.

Room was made on the Memphis spot to accomodate WPXX PAX50 in Memphis. In this case, they moved 4 and 12 to the Nashville spot, since they had 2-3 slots they weren't using.

Therefore, 4 and 12 are coming from transponder 18.

Thanks for all your help!

Glad you got 4 and 12 back. I am familiar with Columbus-Tupelo, MS locals, because my mother in Coffeeville receives them too.
You may want to verify that all connections are solid. I would think that you should get signal strength in the high 80's or low 90's on TP 18.

I would think so too. Unfortunaetly, I didn't check what it was on TP18 before I moved it. Originally, I was told TP4, so in it's old location, I did check it way back when I installed it.
I'll keep working on it, because I'm sure at 78, I'll get some problems when it rains heavily.
