Thread: How do I setup 110/119/129 on one dish?

    Default How do I setup 110/119/129 on one dish?

    Hey guys,
    I would like to have all three(110/119/129) on the same dish. Currently I have 110 and 119.

    From what I've read, sounds like some people drop 110 and just go with 119 and 129 because it is easier of a set up. Is this true?

    Currently I have a 24" elliptical dish. Will this work for all three?

    Thanks!

    Depends on your lnb bracket - is it designed for 2 or more lnbs ? If 2 you would have to go with 119/129 3 or more you can get all 3 . Go to dishpointer.com to verify minimum dish size from your location.

    The bracket that is currently on the dish supports three LNB's(side by side).

    I looked at dishpointer.com and it says I need a 1000.2 dish. Does that mean mine won't work?

    Thanks for the help!

    Your dish should work - looking from behind the dish you will have 129/119/110 .

    Yes you will have to - since you are already pointing at 110/119 your dish will require only minor tweaking.

I didn't want you to think I was spending the money on myself. That's why I posted a reply explaining where the SatFix Bux went.

Here's a little token of my gratitude for your generous donation. Please accept it in the spirit that its meant...

    Remove all LNB's, then using the 3 middle LNB mounts, put the LNB for 119 in the middle, the 110 LNB on the left and the 129 LNB on the right.

    Go to dishpointer.com and set your location, then select the 110,119,129 selection under the multi-LNB selection, align the dish to these new co-ordinates, tweak the dish for the best performance on 119, then skew the dish for 110 and 129, use TP 12457 to find 119, then use TP 12516 to find 129, 110 is TP 12224.

    Please remenber to shut off and unplug your STB prior to disconnecting or connecting any coax cables in order to avoid frying any switches or LNBs
