I may have discovered the problem I have been having with not getting the HD channels on our StarChoice. The website I have been using to help me aim the dish was recommending “Skew” settings that are totally different from the reference document I have used in previous years. For instance, here in Campeche I set the skew at 115 degrees. When I compared this with the old document, I found the old document recommends 134 degrees!
The skew setting ensures the dish is able to receive data from both satellites. Having the skew this far off may mean I am only “seeing” one satellite and all the HD channels are on the other one! I am not going to temp fate by trying to rotate the dish today but when I set it up in Merida tomorrow I will use the readings from the second document.
Here are a couple of shots of the RV Park here at Club Nautico where it is currently 81F at 10:30 AM. Another pool day.
