    DISH - setting up tv2 on VIP722

    I couldn't figure out exactly what it was called after searching, it might not be a DISH part. It's in the picture below: Sat1 is the top cable and Sat2 is the bottom.

    DISH - setting up tv2 on VIP722

    Anyone have any ideas? I have a strong feeling that it might be signal loss from a long cable run. I originally thought the satellite was mounted on the roof when I first went there and a weak signal could explain why TV1 or TV2 works but not both. I'm following up for completion sake in case...

    Ok, so I made a trip up and after replacing the 3-way splitter with a 2-way splitter and replacing cables near the box it still does not work. I am going to attach pictures of the cabling outside, maybe someone will have an idea. It looks like maybe one of the cables (the one that feeds off the...

    Thank you Tecnicoloco! Your post was extremely detailed and the diagram definitely helps. I think I will head down to the cabin with a couple more coax cables, splitters, and caps. Unfortunately, I won't be able to get down to examine and fix this for another couple weeks so I will definitely...

    Excuse the bad mspaint job... so would this diagram work? The triplexer acts as two diplexers doesn't it? And why would I need another triplexer for the LNB output cable? Wouldn't a diplexer work fine? Thanks

    I think I will try getting some caps and downgrading the splitter to a 2 way. I found an older DISH setup diagram and it seems like most people backtrack for TV2. Should I be doing that? Maybe in the below diagram triplexer takes place of the two diplexers? So, if I directly connect the home...

    Directly attached the setup below. The DishPro Plus is only set up to Sat1 and Sat2. TV1 output is from a component cable and TV2 is off the home distribution port

    I haven't actually recorded anything. It's at my parent's cabin and they don't watch too much cable when they go up there. I don't know if this makes a difference, just thought of it, all the tv's are older one's with SD connections and not HD.

    Not at the same time that I can attest to. One or the other works, but not both at the same time

    DISH - setting up tv2 on VIP722

    Unfortunately I don't have any other receivers. The one thing that caught my eye after playing with the settings was that the coax splitter coming off of the home distribution port was only rated up to 1000 MHz. Do you think that could be the problem? I saw something about TV2 being run at a...

    It is in dual mode, the panel is lit up on the front too. I have the mode settings to distribute TV2 to digital channel 85. When I press the reset button on the front of the DVR sometimes I get TV1 displaying while TV2 displays signal loss, other times it is switched.

    You are correct. When the DISH technician installed a couple years back one coax cable was fed into the house and I have that cable going into what I thought was termed a triplexer - it is a DishPro Plus switch. Sorry about the terminology

    Hello, I have setup my DISH network with the following configuration and menu settings and I cannot watch both TV1 and TV2 at the same time: https://s31.postimg.org/mirj3qfm3/TV_setup.png Menu configuration: Setup-->Installation-->Modulation: TV1 cable (channel 75), TV2 cable (channel 85)...
