Thanx for ur continued support LK, i just went close to my lnb and it had 2 out puts but lk i am planning to setup dishnetwork english and PPV on echo 7 too!! so do i have to buy a new dish. if i do how will i set it up. How will i find exactly right direction towards echo 7. Casnu guide me please?? any internet site u want me to refer.??
No need for a new Dish...just buy another LNB and attach it to present LNB...its called a "poormans dish"...U will simply have to realign the new LNB..echo 7 = 119 and echo 8.10 = 110 satellite are very close, so LNB's will be very close (presuming U are pointed at 110 now)...read the FTA "Hardware" and "dish pointing" areas of DSScommunity forums for help with alignment..
Its a far stretch (almost 60 degrees) from 61.5 (echo 3) to 119 (echo 7 ) as U want..thats not going to happen with your present dish..
so in summary. If U have a 18 or 20 inch dish now with a DUAL LNB and receiving the 61.5 sat,and if U want more CHANNELS, I would realign the 61.5 to 110 or 119W....if U want more SATELLITES, then ADD another dish with a DP Twin LNB aimed at the 110 and 119 and combine all 3 sats (61.5, 110, 119) by running a cable from EACH dish to a disque switch and then your receiver..and if U want 2 receivers also, then run 2 cables from each LNB to 2 different disque switches and then to each receiver..
Pannu, maybe I read wrong, but I thought that LK answered you. You need a second dish if you want more than 1 satellite AND the 2 satellites are very far apart. The 2 lnb / 2 satellites / 1 dish set up is usually for 110 & 119 because they are only 9 degrees apart.
Another dish is cheap. If you look around you could even get one free.
Lk or anyone else who can help me that will be very nice...Thankyou
i have fortec ultra reciever which is hooked up with Two Satellite with two DUAL LNB and the satellite wut i have right now they are Echo 6.8 and Echo 3ku,both satellite are working fine right now.. NOw i got another Single LNB which i want to hook it up right beside 6.8...so i can reciever Echo 7ku signal..i want to know if i try doing that i will recieve signal or No ????? just lil confused about it..so wanna to make sure would it work or no..
If using 1 small dish, U say U already have echo 3 (61.5) and echo 6.8 (which is actually 8.10 -(110)..that's GREAT u can get BOTH those sats which is so far apart (almost 50 degrees)...consider yourself LUCK and unheard of normally..the echo 7 ( 119) sat is so close to the 110 that U should have NO problem...I'm still awed that U can get echo 3 with echo 8 on a small dish..
well i got two satellite one for echo 3 and the other one for echo 8..anyways so ur saying that it will work..i will try tomorrow and will post here if it working for me or no thanks alot Lk for ur help
pannu...echo 6.8 has ALWAYS been the 110 satellite and was renamed to Echo 8.10 many months ago...it was NEVER the 119 satellite , which is echo 7..
BTW...renaming the echo 6.8 to "Echo 8.10" will bring in more channels also on the 110..but U can call it anything U want, cause it (LNB on roof dish) really needs to be aligned CORRECTLY to whatever satellite U really want, or NO channels or less and limited channels will be available..!
lk this is really weird because I get 61w 110 &119 but on my (c)oolsat reciever when I do the scan it is only showing 110 on the 61 w and the 119 do you follow me? I used to do installs for a living but its been awhile. I think his reciever is doing what mine is doing but I think both ours are just hitting on 110
