Howdy folks! I am a little experienced in installing satellite systems, that is, I have install 2 or 3 of my own in the past. Including a 1m motorized dish I used years ago for FTA. The latest DirecTv installation has me baffled. I acquired a fairly new slimline dish and a piratically new HR24, so i wanted to attempt to set this up myself, because I enjoy it and I wanted it setup "my way." LOL. Well, here's what we got, like I said newish dish, newish hr24, I bought a new PI and a new RG6 cable with pressured ends. I installed the satellite on the roof, ensuring the mast in NICE and PLUM. The bubble thingy assisted in this (nice addition!). Dishpointer.com tells me (08034 - cherry hill NJ): Elevation: 36.6 Az (true): 217.2 Az (Mag N): 229.5 Skew: 62.4 The HR24 tells me the same thing, but in whole numbers: elev: 37, Az 230 and skew 62. So, I run the new cable, to the PI (next to the receiver), plug in the PI and run 1 2ft rg6 cable from the PI to the HR24 (yes, yes, I used the right output on the PI). Turn the receiver run through setup (SWN detected!) , I get all zero on 101 via the signal meter, I expected this, I really haven't set the AZ. The wife and I both have iPhones, so I use facetime to get a live video of the signal meter on the TV (isn't technology grand?!) and I take my iPhone on the roof to adjust the AZ. I'm up there for a while, I can't get a blip on from the signal meter. I check everything again and again. I kill a lot of time up there. Well, I guess it's the LNB or the PI? I have a multiswitch LNB, so I remove the PI, swap out the LNB and run the cable right into the receiver (I only have one, so no spilitter needed). Rerun the setup on the receiver. Back on the roof, still NOTHING. Again I spend a lot of time maneuvering the dish. Also, keep in mind, this is over the course of 6-8 days. So, now I ask myself, maybe the line of sight is bad? I know the easy answer will be to move the dish, but I really don't want to do that. Here is what I am looking at: Is the roof getting in the way? It's kind of a bad angle, I really don't think its in the way. Just to the right of the telephone pole is 230 degrees (mag N) Obviously, I would want the SWM setup. Could anyone offer and suggestion / advice... ANYTHING? LOL It has been fun, but now it bordering on aggravating. Thanks for reading!
