    Looks like we are getting another week of winter so I don't know when I can get back on the roof.

    Went up on the roof yesterday but had no luck. May have to read instructions on fancy new sat finder. Pulled module and no or bad signal is gone. Snow today, maybe the weekend.

    have you gone to dishpointer dot com yet ? if not then I suggest you do that "FIRST" to be able to properly aim "YOUR DISH"
    It will "SHOW YOU" where to point from "Your Exact Location"
    You have to get your dish pointed & locked on to the sat or sats you want to hit, before you do anything else

    OK, set dish to sat pointer specs, did minor adjustments, nothing. On the dreamlink, signal bounces from 0 to 21 no matter the small adj. Only thing left is lnbs, but I'm not buying new ones so I guess that's it.

    would you be able to get your hands on a older Bell receiver, they work way better for Dish pointing, and will lock on to
    sat. (91/82) much easier than the T5 for pointing etc. You would hook up direct (no switches etc.) to 91 first for max signal
    and depending on what dish setup you have (20" dish-500 with legacy LNB's) it would be a matter of (rotating/twisting-skew) the
    Dish for 82. do you know what type of LNB's you have ? (legacy, dish pro, dishpro/plus) because the dish-pro & dish-pro/plus have
    a built-in switch, which you have to account for in receiver dish settings setup.

    You're in a tough spot now because you don't know if it's a hardware issue, or simply aiming the dish.You have disturbed the dish aim now,so you're staring from ground zero.If there's someone you trust to send your DL to that has a functioning system, I would try that.At least you can confim/eliminate the state of the DL itself.If it's good, you're down to dish aim/cabling/switches/lnbs.I have no idea where you live but I'm willing to help if I can.

    I am willing to test your T5 on my setup just to rule out that it's not a receiver or hardware problem etc.
    If you are willing to send it to me, willing to do Free of $$. If interested send a P.M. and we can work out something

    If he happens to be in the Windsor/Essex County area, I will also do that for him to rule out the receiver issue.
    I've been helped here many times so it's no probs to help out another member.

    It would be a lot more handy if someone was in the west, maybe edmonton.

    I'M in BC, If you are willing to send the unit (T5) To me I will test it out on my system (I am currently using a T5 )

    That way you/we will no if it's the receiver or not, if it needs a HD module, I have some if needed

    All this at "NO COST TO YOU" other than the shipping cost to send it to me. So if still interested in doing this send a P.M.

    And we will "GET-ER DONE"
