Agreed. I checked the signal level on our RCA DVR80 before my installer replaced our triple sat dish with the 5 LNB. The signal on the DVR80 was in the 90's.luvdtv04 said:I hardly ever see anything higher than the 70s on my H20, but my R15 shows consistent 90s on all the 101/110/119 transponders. I heard the BBC module hooked into the H20 can cause the readings to appear lower than they really are.
You have an H20-100. A 70 on an H20 is like having a 85 +/- 3% on any other receiver.purtman said:I was wondering what a good signal is for the five-LNB satellite. I thought our signal was a little low. When I mentioned it to the installer, he said anything over 70 is good. I felt like he didn't want to adjust it to make it better.
Litzdog...Are we getting the new updates for the HR20 in Washington State?litzdog911 said:Anything over 70 is considered good, but with careful alignment readings into the 90's are possible. Of course, it depends on your brand/model DirecTV Receiver, because some models yield lower signal readings than other models.
