    I tinkered with mine tonight. I went from 50s and 60s on D12 to 80s and 90s.

    Wednesday was the first time I had checked signal levels in quite a while. I was surprised to see how low my readings were. No wonder I'd been having so much rain fade lately. The last time I had checked them they were quite good. Now, both 103ca & cb trasnponders ranged from 44-70%. Only sat. 101 was in the 90% range. I went out to check the dish and found 2 loose nuts. First I gave the dish a light tap more toward the south and voila, all signals on all sats are back in the mid to upper 90's! I suppose I lucked out being able to do this myself rather than calling Directv.

    Just to be clear ... not necessarily every transponder, but certainly some on every CONUS (c) screen.

    I have at least one 90 on my 101, 110, 119, 99c and 100 on my 99s locals TP. 103 are the only laggards. I don't really have much of a problem with rain and or snow fade, and we get a lot of rain and snow here. It has to be a pretty major downpour, or very large heavy snow flakes to interrupt the signal.

    OK, I've tried to resist but I can't!
    Self installed AT-9 Dish 10/2005!
    I ordered a dish from Solid Signal BEFORE they knew they could only ship to Detroit DMA for KA/MPEG4 test market.
    That dish is still my primary dish.

    I'm a Directv freak and have parallel MDU setups in my home with multiple "portable" setups that i'm constantly experimenting with. An AT-9 and AU-9 are permanent.

    See my 5 (almost) year old AT-9 results.:D
    Tweaked once after D-10 online but only slightly.

    Not bad if I do say so myself!

    I could not resist. Had to take the high$ SA home tonight from work. Here are the spectrum stacks as viewed from Philadelphia area on an SL3. Enjoy, I will comment the pictures with the details early in the week if anyone wants to know. Done for the night, going to have a drink :grin:

    99 LHCP shows DTV11 on left stack, DTV4s/8 on center (SD Ku channels), and Spaceway 2 on right.
    99 RHCP shows DTV11 on left stack, DTV4s/8 on center (SD Ku channels), and Spaceway 2 on right.
    103 LHCP shows DTV10 on left stack, DTV4s/8 on center (SD Ku channels), and the highly anticipated DTV12 on right.

    Hmmm, I get great signal (95+) on 101, 110 and 119 (which are all MPEG2) and low 60's on the 99 & 99s and high 50s on the 103 sats. Funny I should get the outlier sats and not the closer in ones. Is this alignment or an LNB issue?

    It is an alignment issue. The beamwidth for 99 and 103 is narrower than for 101, 110 and 119, so pointing is more critical.

    Wow, on 103(s) I have:

    0 0 0 0 0 0 NA NA
    NA NA NA NA NA NA 72 0
    0 89 0 100 61 63 80 85

    Is there any thing on Transponders 1-8 that I need to fix that?
