    I would doubt we have anywhere near enough stats to make any conclusions about there being a stronger signal in one place or the other. This would seem especially true since everyones results will be entirely dependent on how well their dish was aimed.

    I would wait awhile. Digital reception quality goes from garbage to perfect as soon as the signal is strong enough for the receiver to receive accurate bitstream numbers. A higher signal strength reading does not make your picture any better once that receiver solidly locks in.

    There are some installers on this site that know the minimums, but if my memory serves 50 is bad, but as soon as you get into the 70s it should work. Rain fade might then be an issue, but I would wait to adjust the dish with just one 75 reading.

    I agree. We cannot tell much from only one TP.

    I will refrain from any more knee-jerk conclusions until D* 'lights it up'.

    Once I'm getting all those lovely HD channels I will then check signal strength.

    Thanks for the gravity adjustment!

    Was just at 86, now at 0. Looks like D10 may have exploded, this is not good.

    Edit: Back to 86 now, looks like the explosion was just a rumor.

    Edit 2: Now back to 0. It's obviously going in and out now, I'm going to stop posting every time it changes.

    Mine got up to the low 60's top, but now without a cloud in the visable sky, my signal is 47. I got a local installer come out on the 19th to fix it.

    I've got B Band converters in place and all I have seen on channel 499 is "Searching...". Also, I can get a 96 on one transponder of 103B.

    Question... "What should I be seeing on channel 499???" :confused:

    Has there been any info on which channels will use 720p and which will use 1080i?

    I don't recall seeing anything on that anywhere.

    Perhaps it exploded and is now stuck in a time dilation loop.
