I've been doing a little homework on meters as I need to pick one up.

The SH100 looks like a handy little meter. It does individual TP's, but I can't find any reference to it giving a reading in dB.

Probably no help, but the SH-200 will.

The best way is with a good spectrum analyzer. From there you set up two markers one at the noise floor and the second at the signal peak and measure the delta.

you cannot see signal strength information, in dB, using a Manhattan receiver.

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. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
