Hello

I'm trying to get Satellite C - 110, and can't. I just added my 3rd LNB, so I'm wondering if I have the wiring incorrect, or something else wrong.

I get 101 and 119 at 90%+.

Thanks

What sort of LNB did you use for the SatC (middle) slot? You need a special "SatC Kit" that includes a special LNB, short cables, and combiner to integrate the SatC LNB signal with the 119-deg SatB LNB signal before your multiswitch.

With special Emphasis on the word Special

Litzdog911 is correct. A regular LNB will not work.
The Cable and Satellite TV industry does not hold the patent on alienating its customers, but COMCAST in particular has succeeded in making an art form of it, garnering them the distinction of "Most Universally Despised" of all PAY-TV providers in the industry.

This is now resolved.

I had the two coax cables for "Antenna B" in my multiswitch backwards. Once I switched them, I get 81 for signal strength on Satellite C.
