so my signal strength on 99c transponder 2 is 0. Will the dish need realignment? Is there anything else I can do? Is this unusual that only this particular transponder says 0?
I guess I'm wondering why it's just one transponder?bonscott87 said:It's not a national problem if you have bad signals on 99. You should have 85-95 on all transponders on 99c.
That's great, glad I could help. With those signal strengths you will still want to call Directv and schedule a realignment. Your signals should be above 70 and ideally in the 80s & 90s.rizajj said:BlueSnake: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
That totally worked. I swapped the B-Band converters (didn't even power off the reciever) and immediately 483 came up and so did 703-1. Signal strength is only at 62 now, but better than the 0 it was before! Actually 6 of the transponders on 99c are 61-65. The rest are 77+. Do I need a realignment in general you think?
Another thing to note is that the B-Band converter I was using before was a grey one--Rev. 2. The one I swapped in was a black one--Rev 3. I wonder how that affects the whole thing. Does the new revision allow weaker signals to come through?
Anyway, thanks again BlueSnake, I appreciate it. Wish I had thought of it earlier!
Amazing that DTV would tell me it's a larger problem and not just me. Ridiculous.
