    Hybrid solo hub question

    I thought that the 42 switch was developed for customers to use a dpp lnb with a hopper setup?I agree on using a hybrid lnb but access difficulties makes it tough to swap lnbs at this time. I'm old and decrepit and don't like climbing on my roof.

    Hybrid solo hub question

    My current setup is three Wallys connected to an exterior grounding block and then to a 1000.2 dish with dpp lnb. I would like to replace the Wallys with a hopper and two joeys connected via coax. I'm planning on using a dph42 switch in place of the grounding block along with a hybrid solo hub...

    Wally Software Update Issue?

    There are quite a few threads on various forums about people having numerous problems with the latest software update on their Wallys using automatic dishes. Dish is supposed to be working on a fix but don't hold your breath.

    Scammer using Dish phone number

    Yes maybe there is relief coming. FCC pushes carriers to implement caller ID authentication by 2019

    Wally DVR not working

    You didn't say but have you activated the dvr feature for the Wally with customer service? One time $40 charge.

    Which Dish for HR24?

    I use an SL3 while motorhoming with my HD receiver. With an HR24 dvr I would go with a SWM3.

    LNB Swap

    Disconnect the power. If you accidentally short the center conductor to ground you could damage the dvr.

    Finally gonna move to pole mount vs roof mount...

    I give up. You people are determined to spend a lot of money. All I'm trying to do is save the OP a few bucks. A tech is not going to rip out my pole and redo it just to get more money out of me. Based on the installs that I have seen QC is not one of their concerns. Good luck on your quest...

    Finally gonna move to pole mount vs roof mount...

    Did you read my previous post (post #17)? I've been using a sleeved 1.5" rigid conduit post (1.5" ID, 1.9" OD) for 5 years now with an AT9 5 lnb with no problems and no rust.

    Finally gonna move to pole mount vs roof mount...

    If you can't find a fence post of the appropriate size then go to Lowes or Depot and buy a length of 1.5" rigid conduit. It is thick and heavy duty with an OD of 1.9". Add one layer of .035 flashing as a collar to the top of the post and the OD will be 1.97". About as close to 2" as you are...

    Directv Receiver and 1080p issues.

    Correct. My 4 year old 42" Sharp Aquos will only accept 1080p/60.

    Anyone Else Seem to Notice

    This problem is being discussed quite a bit on several threads on the 'other' satellite forum. Apparently it is a widespread problem with no actual fixes yet.
