    Faulty LNB?

    Channels 490-493 give no banner, just says channel not available, and no additional information. I took it for a drive tonight to get some gas (ouch!!!) and while sitting at the pump, I decided to turn it on (I have no line of sight in my driveway) and it starts getting full signal on tuner 1...

    Faulty LNB?

    But nothing has been touched since it was installed. It worked perfectly, even tracked the bird going down the road at 70, then all of a sudden, nothing. Thats the part I dont understand. Is there any was to test the LNB to see if it is indeed faulty?

    Faulty LNB?

    Update... Did some more diagnostics on my 3500T in motion dome. Took off the lid and, while the receiver was on, I unhooked each coax and tested the voltage between the outer shield and the central core. Each measured around 13.5 volts. To me, this tells me the LNB is bad. Is this...

    Faulty LNB?

    When I select those channels, it says "No information available" and where the channel display is, it just changes to 0-0 in the upper left corner in the banner. Does this mean the DVR is bad?

    Faulty LNB?

    It is a single LNB dome that toggles between the 101 and the 119 to get my locals. It is not picking up any signal at all. So I should check channels 490-493 and that will tell me what the reciever is putting out? But does that ensure that the LNB is seeing these voltages as if I had a...

    Faulty LNB?

    This is regarding an in motion dome on my RV. I use a R15 DVR unit. When everything starts up, it wont lock in. All the connections are tight and the dome motor is pointing to the South and searching for the bird, but wont lock on. How do I test the coax to see if the DRV is sending out the...

    Which receiver?

    Does the HD DVR come with an HD OTA tuner? Will this allow me to get DTV HD channels and my local HD proframming all on the DVR?

    Which receiver?

    I was told that if my DLP TV had a built in HD tuner, that I dont need a HD receiver or HD DVR to watch HD programming on the DLP. Is this correct? If the signal coming in from the satellite is in HD, can I still watch it in HD with say, an R15 DVR? Thanks Bill

    DVR Work w/o Phone Line?

    So let me get this clear... If I buy an R10, I DO need a phone line to activate, but if I buy an R15, I dont even need the phone line to activate the unit? Am I correct? Thanks Bill

    There is a CD changer, AM/FM tuner, and XM radio that are all controlled by the wall switched so you can listen to any CD or XM channel in any room. Each room has a wall control unit that is programmed from the remotes of each component. These are not tied in with the coax jacks though. Each...
