    DTV Signal Meter

    Thanks OSD, that price is about the middle of the range I was looking at....was just hoping it was a good one. I understand locking in 101 & 119 should be enough baring a bad mount or obstruction but

    DTV Signal Meter

    Hi guys/gals, Been gone a while but good to see most of the gang still helping out. I'm currently looking for a nice yet reasonable signal meter to align my Slimline dish's as needed. I always lugged a small TV, the SWiM, power supply & output splitter up to the roof when I needed some fine...

    No signal on Tuner 2...too many satellites

    No, I just wanted to use one coax per room & this was one of the first products available that allowed this type of setup (It would have been prohibitive to run two coaxial cables to each room). The SWMLNB dish came along after if memory serves.

    No signal on Tuner 2...too many satellites

    Yea Jim, I'm trying to eliminate some component before I go crazy on this. I have four lines coming in from the Slimline5 that feed directly into the SWM8...from there one line is fed into the SWM multiswitch input & then out to each room via the switch's outputs. Everything has worked...

    No signal on Tuner 2...too many satellites

    I've run an SWM-8 system for the past two years with no problems until today I started losing Tuner 2 on one of the receivers. I have 5 receivers...2 H20's & 3 HR22's for a total of 8 tuners. As soon as I unplug a working twin tuner HR22 the malfunctioning tuner works fine. On one receiver I...

    Walking Dead Audio Problem

    Very true, must watch TV using the DVR's fast forward option. They also seem to be having some audio/sync growing pains since switching to HD.

    Missing Guide info since software upgrade

    It might be Discovery, ESPN2, Audience Network & HBOeHD the first time & another set the next week. Your second question is accurate. Every once in a while I get a lemon of a software upgrade & this appears to be one of them; maybe I'll try to force a software upgrade on one of them if the CE...

    Missing Guide info since software upgrade

    No, the guide is there & fully populated but after a few days maybe 10 channels are just blank for certain time slots.

    Missing Guide info since software upgrade

    Hello every1, Recently had my receivers (Hr22-100) upgrade to software version (OX4d1) & for some reason every 48hrs I'm missing the programs that should be populated in the guide window (Some time slots are just blank). It appears to happen to random channels each time; a repeat Satellite...

    Why no AMC HD? (Now Live Sept 9th)

    Looks like we got AMC in HD this morning according to their online/info mail service. It hasn't showed up in my guide yet but I doubt it's a tease. It could be my equipment anyway, my HR22's have been acting up lately since this last national software release came through....missing guide info...

    Any advantage over installing directv by myself with my own equipments?

    You will be a new customer & should get something "free" or "discounted" even though you have your own equipment. You only get one time to negotiate as a new customer so I would ask for the world while you still maintain all the power. If movies are your thing, ask for specials on those. If...

    self installation using Phase III dish

    Phase-3 dish, huh. Those were some of the easiest dish's to install & since all you need is 101 I'm betting you get that sucker done in 15 minutes once your mount is plumb. With a plumb mount we used to just spin the dish & hit signal; just a tad different these days when you are trying to hit 5...

    Directv subscribers subject to collateral damage from Dish/Fox stalemate

    I wish I could help you understand these "Blackouts" but if you call DTV they just read from the script about "other networks" must be carrying the game in your area. I know when it's a screw-up & the only satisfaction & resolution I ever got was dealing with Ellen Flipiak at corporate. This...

    Single Wire installation questions

    Thanks Randal, an interesting read on the expansion model layout.

    Single Wire installation questions

    Interesting, My SWM switch already has two outputs labeled SWM1 & SWM2 (bought them myself) so maybe all I need is to change the splitter from a 1x8 to a 1x16 or am I missing something? The below product is what I have & I know it says SWM-8 but it does have two outputs as mentioned earlier (SWM...

    Single Wire installation questions

    I have the SWM-8 setup & purchased the 8 output splitter for my equipment; either 8 separate receivers or 4 DVR's. I was wondering if I wanted to expand (going with all DVR's) could I simply replace the 8 output switch with the 16 output model? I have the 5 LNB slimline with four cables...
