You will have a lot of trouble getting 129 in Phily (the entire Northeast is not a good area for 129) also the HD locals are on 61.5 only.zorro12 said:can some1 tell me if i can pull in the 129 n/or 61.5 with the dish 1000.2 in philadelphia, pa.? thnx
The HD channels would have the same picture quality on both but 61.5 does have a stronger signal strength but you need a separate dish to get 61.5. 129 is not viewable in Phily, you need to go with 61.5. Your setup needs to be a Dish 500 for 119 and 110 and a separate dish for 61.5.zorro12 said:how's the hd channels on 61.5 compared 2 the 129, n can i get 61.5 on the dish 1000.2? thnx
61.5 is not that hard to point, use of a dtv dish with a modifacation should work. Most just use another Dish 500 dish using only one lnb and setting the skew to 90. Using a Dish 1000 is just overkill.zorro12 said:i have 110, n 119 hooked up 2 a dish 500. can i pull 61.5 with a dish 1000.2 or a dtv circular 18" or will i need a different dish al2gether? thank u !
Use the Dish 1000 to get 110 and 119 and use the smaller dish to get 61.5.zorro12 said:garys i already have the 1000.2 on the roof. i was trying 2 get the 129 sat but could. so i put the 119 n 110 back on the dtv circular. so i have the 1000.2 just mounted there lol can i pull the 61.5 onthe 1000.2 n connect it 2 the dtv circular 4 the 119 n 110? thnx again bud
I had Philly locals at that time, I could not get nor would dealer even try to give me 129 as a location.BobaBird said:
I use a Dish 18" "Dish 300" for 61.5 and it works fine. Just be sure the LNB matches what you use for 119/110 (i.e. if your 119/110 used DP or DPP you have to use a DP LNB for 61.5). If your 119/110 are "legacy" you can use a D* LNB for 61.5 (excluding a "sat C kit" LNB)zorro12 said:what extra bolts r u talking about? would i b able 2 pull the 61.5 on say a regular dtv 18" circular ?
