So the only way to get a second Hopper 3 working is with a DPH42 switch which requires the hybrid dish to be replaced with a DPP dish, is that correctNo. One Hopper 3 per Hybrid LNB. The Hopper 3 must be connected to port #1 on the LNB.
Yes, you need a DPH42 for 2 Hopper 3's.So the only way to get a second Hopper 3 working is with a DPH42 switch which requires the hybrid dish to be replaced with a DPP dish, is that correct
And what's the second port on the hybrid dish for?
Thanks for the explanation.
Copper Clad is just a thin coating on the exterior surface of the center conducter of the cable. Scratch the copper surface or damage it while stripping the cable to put fittings on reduces the conductivity of the cable. Solid copper won't lose conductivity if the outside is scratched.Someone once told me it's a bad idea to run power from the receiver to the LNB over Copper Clad Steel Coax but couldn't explain why. Any idea what he was talking about?
Solid copper is used for all Hughesnet and Viasat internet installations and long TV wire runs. Clad is fine for short and medium TV runs. Solid copper has less resistance so there is a smaller voltage drop for internet and long runs.In what situations is one kind of coax used over the other?
