The problem with checking signal strength is you have to know exactly what sattelites are used and what transponders there on. dish net uses 119 and 110 and sometimes 61.5 your best bet is to check sattelite menu. Hit menu once that comes up hit button number 6, then button number 1 then button number 1 again. then you have to run a test switch its right in the middle, If it finds anything or low signal there will be a check details or error message in red on the bottom of the screen, it will tell you exactly what is wrong. Also one more thing is you can go to menu then hit button number 6, then number 1, then number 3. If the signal is good on the t.v. then it is probably what they call L.O. Drift or Lnb drift which that check will tell you, this is common for older dish systems especially super dishes, which are the big dishes if this is it then you have to schedule and appointment and they will upgrade your dish. If this is too much to take in, you can always call customer service they will walk you through the same thing step by step.
