    Help with DECA and Internet set up

    Yes, the splitter looks exactly like the one you posted. There is an existing PI behind my HR21 700 which is correctly installed from the powered outlet of the splitter. So if I understand correctly, the PI can go anywhere in the system from the splitter and before the first receiver's DECA...

    Help with DECA and Internet set up

    Thank you for your reply. I am only getting one new receiver and it will probably not be an hr24 so I know I will need a DECA for the new receiver. So i will run RG6 cable to the new receiver's DECA and router's DECA from the ground block/spltter. My concern is if the cables come from the...

    Help with DECA and Internet set up

    I have a SWM dish with only one wire from the dish to a grounding block on the outside of the house. The grounding block has four outputs, three are capped and one output goes to a cable going through the wall to a power inserter. The cable from the PI goes to the SAT 1 input on my hr21 700...

    HR10 250 WITH SWM

    I have a TIVO model HR10 250 that I would like to re-activate. Since it was last activated they installed a new SWM LNB dish. Can I use that dish together with the TIVO? I have access to the all the cable runs, the power inserter and the switch. If the TIVO will work with that dish, do I...

    Slimline DIY alignment problem

    Well the service guy came out, looked at the dish and the line of sight and determined that a couple of branches on a large fir tree had grown out and in the way of the 99 sat. He move the dish from the deck to the roof and got all sat numbers to register in the high 90s. He was very...

    Slimline DIY alignment problem

    I have the exact same problem. I get high numbers on 101, 103, and 119. About a week ago the channels on 99c began pixelating a little at first then more and finally a searching for signal message on those channels. I then tried tweaking the dish and using using the receiver as a signal meter...

    771 error message on only Local HD

    I had a similar problem with HD signals from sat 99. After much research I found that even with high sat numbers on most of the satellites the problem was with the dish alignment. With just a very small adjustment to the elevation and azmith (about one turn or two turns on the adjustment nuts)...

    Pixelation on only one channel

    I finally figured out what was wrong. I researched and found that Channel 687 is on Sat 99W transponder 7. I then checked the sat signals and found that I had a zero reading on that transponder only!!! So I adjusted the dish at most only one degree (or less) and solved the poblem.

    Pixelation on only one channel

    I have an HR21 700. I recieve both HD and SD channels perfectly except for the last week or so the HD Fox Sports Channel 687 pixelates and stalls about every few minutes. Sometimes every 20 seconds. This only occurs on this channel. I have reset my receiver several times and my satellite...

    Did Directv turn off MPEG 2 channels?

    Could a mis*aligned dish cause only channels 70, 73 75 and 78 to not be seen by my hr10 250 Tivo while still seeing the other channels 72, 74, 79?

    Did Directv turn off MPEG 2 channels?

    Maybe my dish got out of alignment...I get decent signal strength on 101 and 119, but nothing on 110. Could this cause only channels 70, 73, 75 and 78 not be seen?

    Did Directv turn off MPEG 2 channels?

    Did Directv turn off MPEG 2 channels 70, 73, 75 this week? I can still receive channels 72, 74, 76 and 79 on my HR10 250 TIVO.
