This is an update.
I told you I got the new lnb. It works good..
I decided to hook it to my 4x8 switch.
I did learn. Orby works on the port the is 22k 13v.

I am excited to see this.
One because now my Orby can be moved to any room. . In the house. Just using my system that I installed.

It also opens up the door now to this week's project..

I wanted my system to be able to use both satellites..
C band and ku band. 2 independent satellites.
I'm going to hook back up my 2nd satellite controller.
I'm going to keep c band the way it is. 1 to 20 which will be controller box 1
30 and up for the ku satellite. Controller box 2..

What I'm hoping for is my main box to control everything..

So I'll have full control of both satellites. And 90% of the time my ku will be parked on Orby satellite. I don't see a lot on ku except pbs that I will watch.

If you get the Orby TV DVR service does Orby encrypt the data on your external hard drive such that you must subscribe in order to view your saved programs? Any comments on this would be much appreciated.

Ask orby. :wink:

Disconnect the dvr from the stream before you cancel. Subbed tiers will get wiped but access to recordings might still be possible if no dmr protection.
