I work as a Satellite installer in the summer, and I used to work on C-Band satellites, then when they became more popular, the so-called "mini" dishes. I find that when I'm installing ExpressVu hardware (Dish Network) polarity is not an issue - in fact, I can rotate the feed 90 degrees without experiencing any signal loss! How on earth does this work? I thought that the receving antennas needed to be aligned with the satellite.
