I just got an Echostar 2800. Hooked it up to me DTV oval dish (one with two dual lnbs). First thing after I turned it on was to see the 015 "acquiring
satellite signal. Is the reciver broken? If so, what would i need to repair to obtain a signal.

Thanks for any help

First DISH is not compatible with Directv switches so eliminate the 4X. You also need to reaim the satellite dish to look at DISH Networks satellite your Directv dish is pointing at a satellite located at 101 DISH uses satellites at 110 and 119.
