Thread: 82, 91, 110, 119, & 129 with one dish?

    Default 82, 91, 110, 119, & 129 with one dish?

    So here's my setup.

    I currently have a Shaw Direct sub, so I already have one elliptical dish on my house.

    I have in the basement:
    1 - 18" DTV dish
    1 - 18" x 24" Elliptical dish with 4 LNB bracket (meant for 91, 101, 110, 119)
    4 - dual LNBF

    I used to use the elliptical to get 91, 110, and 119.

    I'd prefer to put up just one dish (no motor) and get 82, 91, 110, 119, 129. However I think getting 82 and 129 on the same dish might be problematic. From what I can tell 82 and 129 have the HD content for each provider, so I'd really like to hit those.

    I've seen brackets that will hold 6 or 7 LNBF (72, 82, 91, 101, 110, 119, 129) but I'm not sure if I'd actually get reliable signal on the five that I want with one dish?

    I could buy a 85 cm dish with a bracket to fit my LNBF's
    I could do 82 & 91 only.
    I could do 110, 119, & 129 only.

    I could do two dishes, but would rather not.

    Whatever I do, I'd like to use an external diseqc switch to keep the wiring to a minimum, would a 8x1 diseqc switch work alright? With only the receiver to power the LNBF's, and switch?

    Sorry, that'd help.

    I'm in Toronto and have been able to reliably get 91, 110, and 119 on the 18x24 in the past.

    im ins/w ontario i have a 33" digiwave dish and draws in all 5 that you are wanting signal from 75% to 97% nothing lower
    110 center my friend was so impressed he bought one no more multiple dishes just one so much cleaner

    I was thinking of an E85 dish with 5 LNB bracket. Should do everything I want it to. Then I'd just need one more LNB and a big ladder to put it up on the roof (only suitable spot).

    What's your wiring like? How do you have the coax running?

    Cool, right now i got dishes all over the place. I want this setup, I want to get 91,110,118,119,129. They all require circular lnbs correct?

    118 requires the special low frequency circular lnb. With it you will receive both 118 and 119 - you need a total of 4 lnbs (or just one if you were to go motorized )
