Thread: Channels on new Satellite
08-31-2012 10:36 AM #13
Alright, I'm going to try to stick with Bell. So I got a 9241 receiver, set it up with a DPP twin LNB and separator. I'm getting signal from 82W on both inputs when I run a check switch (per my previous posts, 91W is not an option). However, when it goes to download information, all I get is "Acquiring Satellite...". Left it at that screen for 30+ minutes with no change. Any ideas?

An update. My satellite guy was here today trying things out. The strange thing is that he gets the dish pointed, it shows up on the "point dish" screen as 82W, but then when I run a check switch, the satellite shows up as 72W or 77W. Literally, I ran check switch once and it showed 72, then without changing anything, ran another check switch and it showed as 77. Has anyone seen this before? It's getting frustrating. I should be able to just have 82W without 91W shouldn't I?

Sounds to me like your Dish is not aimed correctly.
Try aiming with a Legacy LNBF in the 82 slot of the "Y" yolk. When you get that peaked (Don't forget to set the skew first), add the DPP Twin and then run the Check Switch.

So I should be able to use the dish pointer on my old 3100 receiver to at least verify reception?

First, my setup:
Standard 20" dish
DPP LNB (have also tried the Dish LNB)
Locked onto 82W at ~50% signal on most transponders. When I go to the next screen it sits at "Acquiring Satellite.." and does not progress.
I wonder if someone can answer authoritatively:
1. Should I be able to receive programming by hitting 82W exclusively and not 91W?
2. Am I using the wrong LNB?
3. Do I need a bigger dish, or is 50% signal adequate?
4. Could this happen if there is a problem with the way I activated my receiver? It shows activated on the website, but I don't want to call Bell if I don't have to.
Any help would be appreciated.
