    Very Sad News....RIP FaT Air

    This truly is sad news. I recall him helping me a number of times with issues I was having. He will truly be missed but never forgotten. Plus I too have accessed and used his site a number of times when trying to troubleshoot certain issues I may have been having at the time. He was just an all...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    That was fast. The power supply and remote arrived safe and sound today. Still wasn't exepecting a remote, though you already mentioned you included one, a brand new one on top of that since it's in a sealed container still. The way I have bad luck with remotes at times, either losing them, or...

    Unfortunately today is not a good day for me, meaning April 2nd. 2 years ago this day my mother passed away, 1 day before my brother's birthday, and18 days before hers. I used to enjoy April out of all the months in the year, but kind of hard to anymore. My wife's birthday is in April also, but...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    The rain seemed to have let up outside for a bit and I did manage to put together another RG6 finally, thus, then able to fully test the C1-PLL. It's still working fine and I'm able to watch stuff via the MicroHD again, just tested it with that a few moments ago across the entire arc, or at...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    Finally got it figured out I guess. I had to hook up the dashed side of the wire to the minus side of the power converter. Powered the MicroHD right up. Now it's starting to rain out here again and I still haven't been able to check if the C1-PLL is ok. Even though I have spare lnbfs I'm still...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    I realize on the MicroHD power supply cable that one cable is marked with white dashes. What I'm not entirely certain about, is this meaning the + side then, or is it meaning the - side? I'm assuming the + side but want to be 100% positive before I try and connect it to the power converter.

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    I edited my last post before reading this. The question then would be, how do I tell the + from the - on the MicroHD power supply cable so that I correctly connect the - to the - on the Convertor, and the + to the +?

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    While I was digging through these boxes I found the following I purchased years ago...MICRONTA 12 VOLT POWER SUPPLY. I'm thinking I may have purchased it RS at the time, though not certain. It says CONVERTS 120 VAC to 12 VDC. 120 VAC 60 HZ 40 WATTS MAX 13.8 VDC - 1.75A Since the MicroHD power...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    I've gone through all the boxes now and found one more power supply. It says output 12VDC 800mA - +. I'm guessing on this one the 800mA is not going to cut it, correct?

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    Looking through one of the boxes in the closet, I managed to find the following power supply thusfar. Don't think it's going to work since the polarity seems to be the opposite of what the MicroHD requires. The specs on the label say...120v AC 60Hz 10w....12v DC 500mA + followed by a symbol then...

    No Goodwill close, but there happens to be a Salvation Army Thrift Store at the same location as the Super Walmart a half a mile from here. It's just across the street from Walmart. It's a fairly good sized thrift store, though I've never been in there myself, my wife has and was just there...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    If nothing else, we have a Walmart not even a half a mile from here. If they sell power supplies there and that they are maybe 10 bucks or less, maybe we can afford that. Would you happen to know what I should be looking for at Walmart as far as power supplies then, such as a specific model?

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    As to the DSL power supply I found, even though I couldn't make out the ratings because the label had gotten worn out, the model number could still be made out though. According to Google then....MU05-N090060-A1 AC Power Supply Adapter Input: 100-240V AC 50/60Hz 0.3A Output: 9V DC 0.6A...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    That DSL power supply I just found, I went ahead and took a chance and see if the MicroHD would boot up. Hooked it the Sony tv in here and also found out that the HDMI cable is alright after all. The MicroHD booted up like normal, could get into all the menus, all the settings were still intact...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    I think it may be the power supply after all, hopefully. I just found a power supply to a Windstream DSL modem when I had DSL a few years back. Unfortunately the label got worn off the power supply and I can't see the rating. But anyway, I took a chance since it did fit into the MicrroHD to see...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    I actually have one of those if I can recall where I put it. But it looks like the lightning did damage to the RG6, apparently. Don't have any spare RG6 lying around, which needs to be 50' at least, unless I can find some out in the shed. Maybe I put some out there in the past, except I don't...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    Here's what I just tried. I hooked the C1-Pll straight into the 922 via the RG6 that got struck last night. It registered 10 as Signal. If I recall correctly, that means no power at all per the 922. So I then took the C1-Pll off the dish and brought it inside, then hooked it up the 922 via about...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    Hmmm....the last time I looked outside it looked pretty cloudy, so I assumed it still was. I just looked outside now after making my last post, hardly a cloud in the sky now. I guess the rain has maybe moved out of the area then. So I guess I can check after all then, maybe after lunch, assuming...

    Can anyone explain the logic in this?

    If there is still any analog chs ITC in the 4DTV, I should be able to hook up the C1-Pll to the 4dtv in order to verify. Is there any analog at all remaining per the 4dtv? According to Lyngsat it looks like there may be one on AMC 10 at 135.0°W, tr 9. But then again, don't know if Lyngsat always...
