    Installer fun

    The "little box" was your multi-switch which you will need no matter what since you will either need 5 feeds if you include the dvr as one of the 4 rooms or 6 feeds if its 5 rooms all together. As for asking for directions I would say when I installed I had to call people about 25% of the time...

    R10 Freezing?

    Sound like the memory is F U L L if you let it record suggestions it doesn't take up memory for upcoming recordings but the more full the memory the slower the TIVO.

    Cabling question

    You may getaway with using rg 59 however you risk the line burning up. The dielectric in the rg 59 can't pass voltages like 13v or 18v. The installer will IMMEDIATELY fail a QC if they use it. Good luck.

    Lost Signal When I Added Second Line

    I installed sat dishes until about a year ago. I cut PLENTY of coax while it was connected to the LNB and receiver. I NEVER had a single problem. The potential problems I see are: Crappy connectors, coax braid is coming out and touching the copper core, SEVERE bend in cable, staple or...

    Lost Signal When I Added Second Line

    I still don't understand what this means: "Because I will be feeding two receivers, I cut the line between the dish and the grounding block, added F-connectors and made that original long line from the dish to the grounding block into two shorter lines. I connected both of these lines to my...

    Expert advise needed

    Try switching the outgoing cables around at the multiswitch. If oneof your other recievers starts having this problem its the multiswitch if not probably the cabling or connectors. Have you given any thougth to turning off the reciever?

    R10 Remote Control help

    Is it just a tv or a tv/vcr/dvd combo unit? If there is a vcr/dvd player attached (1 or both) sometimes you have to control the tv through using the dvd or vcr function on the remote. Kinda hard to explain w/o getting TOO long winded. Hope you understand what I'm trying to say. Good luck.

    Need help installing new jack!

    Call around to local satellite retailers. If you are close and there are techs in need of work you could probably get it done cheaper than $70. If you are going to run a new line it will cost some dough. All the tools and supplies to get the line up and running aren't super cheap. $70 to get...

    optimizing satellite pointing without using a receiver...

    From reading your post I can assume that you have already invested $200-300 in a self install a qualified certified and possibly competent installer could have done for free to you. At this point I see no other option for you than a BirdDog satellite finder. For a mere $500 you can be the envy...

    Proposal for how to ground dish and cables...

    Although alot of free installs are garbage why do people try to self install? Why not let the professionals do it? If you don't like a free installer hire someone to install it.

    Extra $1/mo DVR Charge?

    I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure the contract signed allows for D* to raise prices. Isn't this thread supposed to be under DVR not general?
