    Upgrading receiver

    Me again. Got me the right chipset wifi dongle, still can't get the receiver to recognize it. Made sure it is the right now by verifying the chipset on my laptop. Hooked it up. Ethernet. Wireless. "No wireless device exists." Help please.

    Upgrading receiver

    Yep, finally got some time tonight. I have a 60" and mounted a 40" above it, so I am watching the Cavs game while messing with the FTA. We're happy. All going well, this picture is GREAT compared to what I was used to. Talking to the wife, she is right.....I had that Lifetime receiver for...

    Upgrading receiver

    Got my toy yesterday, finally got to installing it today. Thanks for the quick delivery. Quite happy with the easy ordering and process. Now trying to get it programmed, a little frustrating. I verified on the Fortec that the dish had signal (was watching a show on 97.0), then simply...

    ^If I could do a BUD, I would. Kinda waiting to see a neighbor a few houses does with his dish. He is done using it. I've put in the word. :) Thanks for all the info on the receivers.

    Upgrading receiver

    ^thanks.....it's good to support your sponsors. One last question......seeing those other receivers, what would I be missing out by getting the mini instead of something more? I read the specs, but couldn't find much of a difference.

    Upgrading receiver

    Mostly international stuff. I love finding the wild feeds for sports when they happen, but that's only really during college football/basketball season. All Ku FYI. And having HD on a huge TV is a must anymore.

    Upgrading receiver

    Currently with the old skool Fortec Star Lifetime Classic NA. Been reading about the new receiver options. There are apparently a lot more options nowadays. I have tried to do as much reading as possible and gather my information, but it leads to two questions I want to gather opinions on...

    30W out of range on a SG9120 motor?

    I found it easier to mount a second dish aimed at Hispasat than to try to get my motor to from 30-127 degrees. Now I go no lower than 43 degrees, and this was a cheap way to solve a small prob.

    What am I doing wrong here?

    My FTA dishes are not getting any signal. I have motorized dish that goes from 45-127 degrees. No channels coming through. I thought maybe the aim was off and I needed to reset it, but everything seems fine. I reset the receiver, and still nothing. Then I used my mind and thought for a...

    My HH100 motor died.....I think

    OK, thanks for the tips. Easy enough, gotta start and see what I did. I may have damaged the cable cuz I was trimming grass around it and may have hit it. It is uncommon for these motors to die? Do they last a long time? I use mine maybe twice a month.

    My HH100 motor died.....I think

    I tried to switch satellites today, and I was getting nothing. I went outside to take a look, and I saw the orange light was not on. I checked all the connections and everything is tight. Anything else I need to check before buying a new motor? Lifetime Ultra receiver. If I do need a...
