Playing around with positions with Zone 1 dish and been trying to pick up 30w with no joy so just to make sure meter wasnt palying up I swung dish back round to 28 (pucker signal) then 19.2 and couldnt pick that up either. Neighbours gable end in line of site but seriously doubted that was the problem as far enough away to clear it so set dish up with my old premiere meter and found 19.2 straight away and after tweaking picked up good h/v. Slapped my Horizon on there and still searching on verticals but locked signal on horizontals. I realise that the two meters must be set up for different transponders as when I tweaked the dish with the premiere to best signal I have to adjust it slightly for highest reading using the Horizon. Now I can understand this but cant figure out why I cant get a lock on verticals let alone any type of quality..Anybody any ideas? Ive downloaded the latest firmware and uploaded a new transponder list yesterday so cant see that its searching for an unused/out of date transponder??? stuck for suggestions but wondering if this is the reason I cant pick up 30w. any help much appreciated
