    setting up 1000.4 with a vip211

    We are trying to hook up a 1000.4 dish to a vip211 receiver. We ran one cable from the receiver to port 1 on the lnbf. We get signal and locked on from 72 satellite but can't lock on 77 or 61.5. To properly align the dish should we cover the 2 outside lnd's to ensure we are getting satellite 72...

    setting up hd satellite at camper

    We have Dish Network HD at home. I called Dish to see if we could set it up at the camper and they said even though the dish will be stationary they can't service 5th wheels. We have set dishes up before ourselves so we thought we would try and I wondered if anyone could tell me exactly what we...

    Only seeing 110 on both satellites

    We removed the switch and ran a cable from each lnb to the receiver and still get 110 on both lnb. We even put in legacy lnbs and still with the same results. We just cant find 119.

    upgrading from legacy

    We want to hook up 4 tv's. We currently have a 625 receiver hooked up to 2 tv's. We have legacy lnb and a 21 switch. We are thinking of buying the 322 receiver that would let us use that on 2 additional tv's. What would be the best switch and lnb's to buy to upgrade from the legacy so we can...

    625 no longer working on 2 tv's

    I should have been specific. We don't have a seperater. We have 2 seperate feeds coming from the dish and going to the receiver. From there we have seperate lines running from the receiver to the 2 tv's. It is puzzling.

    625 no longer working on 2 tv's

    I have a 625 receiver hooked up to 2 tv's and it has been working fine for a couple years. All of a sudden last month I noticed that I can't watch the 2 tv's at the same time. The satellite will work if I have one tv turned on at a time. If I turn both on then the last one that is turned on will...

    311 receiver to a dish 500

    Thank you for the info Thanks so much for your information. I was getting confused if I had the correct correct switch with our equipment. We tried it again last night and did what was advised of us to test the switch only on 119 then we would have 110. That is exactly what happened. We were...

    We are trying to connect a dish network system to our rv. We have a 311 receiver and a dish 500 with the SW21 switches. First, is this ok or do the switches have to be dish pro switches? I was confused reading some posts. When we tried to hook it up we received a signal and thought everything...

    received rv waiver I faxed the rv waiver on December 19th. They said it may take a couple of weeks. I called them on December 29th and they had just approved them and turned them on. I was so happy. It was worth the wait. I called the customer service number as I didn't want to leave a message...
