The Winegard antenna would be perfect but I have a lot to learn to be able to modify or configure this for Othernet.
You are correct - the LNB is unusual in design and don’t know if it will be possible to modify or replace. Also don’t know how to calculate offset, even if I could compensate for it.
Really just getting started with this Ku stuff and a ways to go before I can accomplish much more.
I tested the Winegard a couple of days ago. As you mention, the power to the LNB from the dreamcatcher is in range and the logviewer diagnostics showed that all the parameters were o.k. - power was getting to the LNB. But that’s as far as I got and really don’t know if we were getting anything based on a blank Dreamcatcher Status Screen.
The Winegard dish can be manually oriented, which I did, and of course not powered up so that once oriented the dish stays pointed properly. It would be perfect if it could be auto controlled to stay on a given satellite, which is possible with DISH or Directv receivers but probably out of the question here.
I’ve seen nothing on the internet that has helped - very little info except from RVers who want to just to use it for Directv or Dish Network. Dish receivers are no longer compatible with this older unit, but a couple of Directv ones are.
The only dip switches I’ve used are ones to set whether Directv or Dish. I haven’t torn anything apart yet to see if there are any other switches. I think most is done through software and interaction with the satellite receiver it’s connected to…
