    Determing the quality of co-axial cable

    I made the mistake of buying one from Home Depot that had a copper plated steel conductor instead of solid copper and it didn't have a foam dialectric - just extruded plastic. I wouldn't have known if I hadn't cut it.

    Need help to setup the 921.......

    I don't have the 921 manual with me but I think it said something about hooking up the 921 directly to the 119/110 dish without switches first in order to take the download then add the switch and run checkswitch. I may be wrong but this would explain your problem.

    Thanks for that. I'm advised by Dish CSR that all the HD channels are on 110/119 and that I don't need a dish at 148.

    Questions about 921 and satellite hookup

    Hi, I've just received my 921 and it is calling out to me to get going with the install! 1) I'm in CA and have a dish 500 pointed at 110/119. Is this sufficient to get all the HD channels or do I need to get another dish pointed at 61.5? 2) If I don't need another dish then I need to take...
