Hey conky, so this Starchoice dish that is a channel master 60e.....I'm not familiar off the top of my head what that dish looks like.  To give me an idea would you say that it more resembles a primestar dish or a 90 cm dish or and 18" pizza dish?  
I've got a 90cm and a primestar which I can use for CV and trying to decide which one.
Looks like I'm gonna have to have a pole made up for it because its just to difficult to see that direction at my place.  I'm thinking that either one of my dishes would do the trick but also wondering if I could sneak out using a pizza dish.

Thor1666 I think the dish he use's is a wide one here I used a 39 in. and I see its a little warped. Had to mount on tv tower to clear the trees hope when the leaves drop signal will improve.
Was on a site and a guy there made a bracket and mounted a bunch of lnb's with good luck.

Thanks fenelon.  Is your dish 39" side to side width or top to bottom height?

my Hispasat dish is like this
[$_35] 
It's probably smaller than your primestar dish but I'm guessing that due to your low angle you might be in a "fringe" area so a bigger dish would help.

some info on upside down dishes

If you're wondering where exactly in the sky any satellite is, solar outage time is in a month or so. If you can clearly see the sun from your antenna site at the alloted time with no trees in the way it's possible to get the satellite

thanks for the picture conky. yes that dish is a little bit smaller than the primestar but larger than a pizza dish.  Im getting a better idea of what I need to do for CV.
I haven't ruled out anything just yet.
As far as the upside down dish thing goes.....well I'm just gonna pass on that whole thing.  Its hard enough to get a dish pointed and aligned properly when it is right side up lol..

What source are you using for a guide?   I'm looking at the Cubavision guide from their website and it shows only Serena @ 9:50pm as the only one of those movies you listed as being on for tonight.  The others it shows are "Delivery"  "Settling Accounts" and "A Life Lesson"

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well.
