    If you pay $100 for a receiver and get it installed for $25. Do your math that is $125.00 including the dish, receiver and installation. The same figure as the previous sale. I only paid $50 for my receiver and $70 for the dish and I had to install it myself. So I saved $5 and had to install...

    40% off Orby TV receivers and DVRs at Best Buy - 11/21 - 11/23

    Looks like now you pay full price for the receiver and get the install for $25.00. The install kind of makes up for paying full price for receiver. I just looked on orby site. The install includes the dish and wireing to one room. I was at best buy today and the receivers were not on sale...

    What diplexer and LNB is needed for DIY install?

    Can it cause a problem using a multi switch, and not using the 14 volt side? I have the switch behind the tv and it is out of the weather. Just wondering. So far I havn,t connected the second receiver yet. I did put the terminator covers that came with it on the unused ports.

    What diplexer and LNB is needed for DIY install?

    I only paid $5.00 for multi switch , so about the same price as a splitter. So with a high freq. spliter and a diplexer you have 2 compenents with a lot more short wires and connections. There is lots of ways to skin the cat.

    OrbyTV: Do-it-yourself Sale

    I am leary of websites that do not give their business location. I could believe that they could sell it for the advertised price as I bought one at best buy for $50 + 6% Pennsylvania sales tax. Hope that it shows up for you!!

    Overdriven audio on some channels

    What is overdriven audio? A few days ago my obery audio gets low, drops out and comes back. I do not know if it is the tv or satellite. Since I have company till after new years I probably will not have much time for testing. I was using composite and changed the wire to another one and tryyed...

    What diplexer and LNB is needed for DIY install?

    Since I already had ota wire to tv I first used the diplexer . Today I changed that out to an Eagle Aspen DTV 3XR MULTI SWITCH. I still have the same signal readings. I changed to the multi switch because I got the second receiver and thought this should work and it would be easier to use.

    I looked up omny antenna. Seems that that is the type of antenna. What brand and model of antenna do you have? I have an Antop that has a built in amplifier with 2 tv outputs. I just put one output to my tv and the other one to the diplexor and it worked fine.

    Anyone try a starchoice 60 e dish to receive orby tv.

    I didn,t even connect the tv tower antenna. I have tablo players with hard drives so do not really need ota tv on the Orby as I was thinking it might further degrade the signal. I really do not think discovery history and hall mark channels are on broadcast tv. So it is the dish signal strength...

After I connected the dish inside I still had a quality of 99 but the signal strength dropped to 74 today and the quality was...

    Anyone try a starchoice 60 e dish to receive orby tv.

    Today I worked with the starchoice dish. 60-e dish. It is made by channel master. The skew setting bolts are rusted so would have to drill them out. The scale for setting the skew is different. I think the pipe you attach the starchoice lnbf too is centered. When orby only wants $70 for their...

    Orby Saves the Day (or more) in the California Power Blackout

    I like your air conditioner system. I assume it is an inverter model. I had to get a new window unit and got a 14,000 btu LG inverter unit. The one that wore out was a 10,200 btu and flickered the lights when it come on. This new inverter model slowly ramps up and don,t need a surge to start...

    Orby Saves the Day (or more) in the California Power Blackout

    Truckracer, Where did you install the outside unit? I could see that the inside unit shouldn,t be too much of a problem to install. Did you put the outside unit 0n the back or maybe the toung or maybe on the roof?
