I just got Echostar AD3600IP with 1.1m dish with using the inegrated posioner
and start from 42e to 30w but I said to my dealer that I wanted 43w he said this is not possible When I had a 1m dish with a Diseqc motor before I could get it!
what changed is he telling me porkies?

Did the dealer install the reciver and dish for you?. if he did is it located in a different position and at a differant hight from your original. If so it could be there is no line of sight to 43'W.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

You could do a simple check and look at the dish when its pointing as far West as it will go. If there is nothing but clear sky and no trees/buildings fouling the dish on its right , then there is no reason why 43 West should not be received

Really only religious and Hispanic TV though on 43West, are they what you want to watch ?

Hardware stops set on the motor, or stops set in the receiver firmware?

Motor error, would suggest the reed switch counter is not functioning. This in a DiSEqC motor simply tells the control system to stop the dish from moving.

Does the dish continue to move beyond 30W even though the receiver throws up the error ?
