I heard from Winegard Friday. Winegard engineers feel that because sat 111w is low on horizon and we are located in Newfoundland our dish is barely hitting 111w but not enough for a connection. They say for RV rooftops they program the Trav'ler at a minimum angle of 15 degrees to avoid any possibility of interference from objects on roof. They say that from Newfoundland 111w is at exactly 15 degrees and that is why we are having issues. The dish can't get low enough. They feel when we travel and move out of Newfoundland we should get service. If we do that will confirm their theory and they will need to write some custom software to allow our dish to go lower than 15 degrees. I don't know why we did not have this issue on our last coach but they say it could be different location on rooftop and because we are located right in the 15 degree area it could have been just luck. I am skeptical but the explanation sounds logical. We will see mid July.

Bill, I had the same issue with my TS in Bar Harbor Maine. I could not pick up one of the Sats. As soon as we headed south, no problem. I have not had the Entegra up there yet, so no comment on that setup.

Yeah forget hitting 129 in the northeast. We summer in RI and it is virtually impossible. That's one of the three sats (110/119/129) in DISH's Western Arc and the only DISH sats the Winegard Trav'ler fully supports. In addition, in many markets west of the Mississippi, the HD programming is on the Eastern Arc satellites (61.5/72), so even if you could get 129 you would be stuck with SD, or nothing at all in some of the markets. Tom at http://rvseniormoments.com put together this great map that summarizes all that.

I swapped the LNB on our Trav'ler with an Eastern Arc version for the summer. I do a manual tune to the 72 sat, and after a check switch, the system sees both 61.5 and 72 which is all you need to get most programming in HD for every market that I am aware of up here. We have a Hopper so I don't know if this would work with other receivers.

The gotcha with this is Winegard does not support the eastern arc so there is no skew adjustment. Fortunately at my location the skew is near zero so it works fine without intervention - it is possible to manually move the Trav'ler to adjust the skew.

I checked with RF Mogul and they do not support the DISH EA either, at least not at this time.

BTW while replacing the LNB I learned that it is Port C on the Trav'ler that supplies the LNB voltage to the LNB, so when you get the "No LNB Voltage" message, the cable on Port C is the one that is probably bad.
