      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

What receiver model is it? Certain receivers are compatable with certain LNBs. Also, if it is a dual tuner receiver, and you have it hooked up to your phone line at home, I would disconnect it and call DN and tell them to put the phone line bypass on your account to avoid problems. It will cost an addition $5/month to not have it hooked up to a phone line, but if it is hooked up and then you disconnect it, you could have your receivers shut down due to a multiple address investigation. They are starting to crack down on people running multiple receivers at different addresses and having only one account.

Anyway, get a Dish 500 with a DPP twin LNB and you shouldn't have any compatability issues. Make sure the mast is level, set the elevation about 34 and the skew at 110. Point the dish at 202 degrees (SW, more South than West). Run RG6 coax cable from the far left port on the LNB to the receiver and you should be good to go. FYI, the dish settings are pretty uniform for the whole state of MN. Turn the receiver on, press menu 6-1-1 and do a check switch to confirm your installation is correct. You should have satellites 119 and 110 ALL. If not, go to the signal strength screen and try to peak out Sat 119 transponder 11 to the highest level. Any other questions, let me know.

the receiver model is a dp301 does that matter and as far as the phone line, when i had dn hook me up i informed them that one of the receivers was going to be for a rv so they gave me a third receiver at a $5 dollar a month extra charge so i think as far as the phone line goes I think I'm good. one more thing the dish I am planning on hooking up to is a dish500,dish300,three single-output dishpro LNBFs, one dp34, for four dishpro receivers will that work? thanks for the reply lakedocktor!!

I have dish network in my fish house and it works great. I usually have it in the garage and when I am going to spend a overnight on the lake I just take it with. I do have an extra dish so I dont have to crawl up on the garage to get it. The only thing that is a pain is getting the signal. Sometimes I get lucky and it only takes a minute and sometimes I have to play with it for awhile to get a good signal. Just postion your tv so you can see it through the window. Nothing like watching the outdoor channel in the shanty or better yet making your kid happy when the fish arn't biting.

Couple tips.

Mount the dish on some sort of portable stand. We use a concrete block. Have seen some mounted directly to the house. Limits your sight window if you have to position the house at a different angle due to wind. You could mount it above the house but that makes it hard to tune in.

Make sure there is an operating window next to where you are going to set the dish. That way you can hear the test screen. 2 person method works but tends to flare tempers in the process.

Put an external coax fitting on the house and quick connect end on the dish cable. Anything to speed up the process is good. Remember, it's going to be cold and windy out there.

Be patient, especially with Dish. Not near as easy to tune in as Directv. I have set up by friends with Dish and there is no comparison.

glojig. what do you need two dishes for? do you have international or religious channels? What I would do is just get a DPP Twin LNB for that dish 500 and eliminate all of the other components. All of the equipment is backwards compatible. For instance, you can use Dish Pro Plus on DPP, DishPro and Legacy equip., but you can't use a DPP receiver (dual tuner) on a DishPro or Legacy LNB unless you have a DPP44 powered switch. You have way too much stuff for what you are trying to accomplish. With the two dishes, the three lnbs and the 34 switch, you are just asking for a problem to happen. The less equipment you use, the better your chances are for nothing to go out on you. Do you have the 301 hooked up right now? If you don't, I would hook it up and make sure everything is active and software is downloaded. There is nothing worse than getting on the lake and not having cell service to have to call into DN customer service for help! Anything else, let me know. I would also pick up some kind of signal meter. I have a bunch of stuff laying around. If you or anyone needs anything, let me know.

    • They don't save cap space that is the whole point. The money is still spent. What it allows them to do is go OVER the cap during such time a player is on LTIR. It doesn't give them relief at all, it just allows them to go over the cap. We already have Coyle on LTIR so it wouldn't do any good to add Parise to that. That would mean two moves would have to happen when they are both healthy. The Wild could do that too, but what sense would that make because they would be forced to be compliant once Parise is healthy. Hossa is likely going to be LTIR all year. At this point I doubt Parise will be out that long. Russo did a very good writeup on it last night for TheAthletic. You can also read up on it on CapFriendly.
    • I'm on board with the others, sounds legal to me!  Best of luck hunting! Kettle
    • Was in Joes sporting goods last night and they had the 8" K drill for $219
    • Sounds good to me.
    • It should be as long as the wma butts up to the lake,
    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
