On the LNB or DVR?
If its the DVR you really need to use both inputs on the HD DVR if they have 2 tuners.
Thanks I did bring the splitter with me and will try it tommorrow.
No luck using the splitter its a 9241 receiver one station came in but changing stations gets a signal loss screen,thankfullyI brought my 4100 which works perfect.The dish is a 30in with a 92 % signal.

You cannot use a splitter from a Legacy LNBF. To connect the 9241, run 2 lines from the LNBF to BOTH inputs. Don't forget to run a "Check Switch".
Do you mean run two lines from the standard LNB to each output on the receiver and don,t use the splitter.

Also you need to redo the check switch after you hook up the cables
Will try that tommorrow and let you know the results.
No luck guy,s did the check switch after I hooked up a feed to each sat and it still shows the box signal lose thanks anyway.

You sound like you are trying to feed each Input with signals from a different Sat. That will NEVER work.
Run 2 lines from the SAME LNBF, into BOTH Inputs of the 9241. Pretty sure where you are you will NOT get 82, so just use 91 and watch SD Channels.
That exactly what I did and I ran the checkswitch still same result gives a signal loss box my 4100 works perfect off the same 91 sat.Now the recorder is being put in the closet for the winter till we get home.It turns out the installer back home said he, was pretty sure the 9241 would not work like a 4100 and he was right in the end.Thanks anyway.
I'm just curious did you try using the 4100 with each of the two lines coming from 91W. I know you said it works with one of them, but does it work with the other line just the same without issue?
The 4100 works off the crankup dish on the roof of the rv it also worked off the 30 in dish out on the shed,the HD recorder worked off the camper dish perfectly at home in Canada.Now our first night on the road in St Louis no signal on the recorder but the 4100 got 81% signal.Out here in az I got 3 stations on the 9241 and all stations on the 4100 pretty well given up after trying all the suggestion.

Logically there is no reason the 9241 would NOT work if the 4100 does on BOTH feeds.
Lots of Customers use the 9241 for just SD Channels anyway.
I just took the 4100 out to the shed and tried it on that second feed and it downloaded the guide within seconds that tells me its something in the 9241 or were we are in the US.Like I said 3 stations came in 411 and the 2 below when you get the guide it showed everything but click on any other channel and that box came up and stayed there.
