Yep, failing LNBs can definitely show that symptom.davring said:I had a temperature sensitive LNB that would lose signal strength during the heat of the day. It finally would drop all my HD locals until was in the shade. A replacement cured it.
Tilt (skew) has no real effect (unless it is way way off) on sats 101 or 103. Sat 99c sees a little signal strength change with tilt adjustments. If you adjust tilt, Use a sat 119 TP on the receivers signal strength meter. Make 2-3 degree changes at a time and wait 2-3 seconds between adjustments.iluvtv said:thanks guys for the info, i tried tweaking the other day with my son using walkie talkies , he watched the screen while i did the important stuff, lol, i'm wondering just how much of a delay is there when turning an adjustment bolt till the signal change shows up, 1-2 seconds? just can't seem to bring the 99 or 103 levels into the 80's other than maybe a couple transponders hitting 80-81, during the day i sometimes see a few around 65, i have 101 signals in the 82-93 range but 119 levels aren't so great either68-80, would that suggest my tilt is off or is it really hard to say?
