latt. 43.4 - long. 79.2 - elev.38.4 ( southern T.O.)
area - hh90 rotor - 33"dish -

plz. tell me if one aiming for linear satt. ( with linear LNB) what satt. must be located first

If aiming for only circular satt. ( with circular LNB) what will be the circular satt. ?
( qph-Invacom is out of budget at the moment )
if circular lnb is placed in centre and linear on side is there any possibility of accessing both linear and circular ?
thanks in advance for any help.

Hey ab
A) Yes, both of your LNBs must have dual outputs.
Only one (1) receiver to control the motor.
Now, connect one wire from one side of your Circular LNB to a 2 in 1 DiSEqC switch.And one wire from one side of your Linear LNB and loop through the motor to the other side of your DiSEqC switch.

Second Receiver, same as above, only DO NOT LOOP THROUGH THE MOTOR.
NOTE, you could also run the wire from your main receiver to the second one.

B) From your location EchoStar 1&2 @ 148.oW is out of range. The Elevation is 6.8 degree.
As for AMC 10 @135.oW it is on a C Band.

C) Scroll to, (Edit TP / Satellite)
On this satellite name list you will see the word NEW, ( press OK) now, enter the new satellite name by using the numeric KEYS.
