    If I purchase the Dish 500+ LNBF 118/119 with clamp, can I just attach it to the arm on my 30" dish and connect into the extra port on my 1000.2. I was using the extra port for the 61.5. I am uncertain as the 500+ being KU. Would I need any other switches? Are there two connections on the 500+ LNB, or just one for both LNBs? That might complicate things with the 1000.2 (119) already in use.
    Thanks.

    I was just wondering about re-using the 30 inch Dish for something. I guess I could just install a KU LNBF and dedicate it to lets say the KU side on G19. I get the bird with my BUD now. I do not believe I asked about the 118/119 LNBF as an option. It may not matter all that much if everything on the 118 is pretty much scrambled. Just a thought...

    I would (did use) that dish 1000+ LNBF block with three sats 110/118/118 and DP LNBF for 129 with DPP44 switch

    Thanks. If I was to add that DP LNBF to my set up, I would still need the additional switch? I see why many just go with the whole 1000+ dish/LNBF combo. Adding a wing dish for just the 118 is a bit complicated, being KU. I guess. Using the side dish for either the 148 or 61.5 is easy. I was thinking about adding that 1000+ LNBF to my 30" dish and then just running the cable from the extra port to the 118 part of the LNBF cluster. It sounds like I would still need the 44 switch, am I correct?

    if your current LNBF have an INPUT, you could try if for connect a coax from FSS Ku DP LNBF [118W]
    could you go up and check the existing LNBF by your eyes ?

    I think DISH lost the 148 slot several years ago.

    There are table entries (NIT and SDT) ... but they are excellent examples of "just because channels are in the table doesn't mean those channels are on the satellite".

    I publish channel lists ... so sometimes people use my website and say that there are channels on 148 and even claim that there is a satellite there. (There isn't.)

    I would put a disclaimer at your site for 148W SI data "no real channels at 148W as there's not a sat!"

    I have the 1000.2 (129/119/110). It is DP. I added the wing dish for the 61.5 (DP LNBF). I have to see if I can find an FSS Ku DP LNBF. I used to see them, but I haven't for sometime. thanks.

    Already on the site. Putting it on the 148W page would take a change in the software that creates the web pages every morning.

    Channel Lists by Satellite / Transponder
    Channels on 119 Channels on 110 Channels on 129
    Channels on 61.5 Channels on 72.7 Channels on 77
    Channels on 118 Channels on 121 Channels on 148
    Includes all channels, transponders and spotbeams. Files may be extremely large.
    119-110-129 comprise "Western Arc". 61.5-72.7-77 comprise "Eastern Arc".
    118 is receivable on a "Plus" dish. 121 is used for business channels. There is no satellite at 148.

    It is the 1000.2 monoblock of the three LNBFs.

    The unit I believe has the one input to the receiver and an output F connector for the wing dish. I was wondering if I could replace the DP Single LNBF used for the 61.5 with a FSS ku LNBF and point it at the 118.75?

    well... The LNBF is a source, so its OUTPUT is connected to STB or a switch, when INPUT connector is for wing dish
    yeah, if your FSS is DP kind, you can connect it to _input_ of your 1k2 LNBF
    would be nice to get a picture of the connectors at LNBF with readable labels

    The LNBF and coax covers have been out in the weather for quite a while and getting that bolted cover off will be a chore. The piece of RG6 is out to the 61.5 and that end it easy to get to. But it does sound like a FSS DP LNBF connected to the 30" dish should work for the 118.75. It is aimed at the 61.5 now, but I will have to move the dish to be able to point it at the 118.75 I think. First I got to see if I can find an FSS LNBF. I was wondering if the 119/118 LNB combo would work, if I just used the 118 side, or can I? Are there just one single inputs or two? I really do not need another dish at the 119. However, with the 30" dish I would have a heck of a good signal.
