Sorry to confuse. I already have the 5lnb new dish. The problem is you need the filters that your Rg-6 from the Dish feeds into just before they plug into your receivers. The receivers come with two. However since this was sent as a replacement receiver it did not contain the needed to to get sats 99-103 So I essentially have to set my second receiver to a 3 lnb oval setting to work properly as it wont find the other 2 sats without the filters.
The other sucky thing is they only dropped the standard 4 feeds straight to a grounding block with 4 feeds into my home. 2 into my living room so I am good there. one into the kids room and one into master bedroom. I dont want to shell out the bucks for the one wire switch option. They will comeback out and put a 6by8 switch in and drop one more rg6 to master for 80 bucks. I am okay with single feed for now but need those 2 line filters at receiver for most of my HD channels.
Does this make more sense.
Yes, this make much better sense now.
Unfortunatly , you cannot get the filters (BBC's Broadband Convertors) anywhere other than D*, they will send them out to you for free if you call and tell them you need some.
You can also order them online from D*'s website, I'm not sure where on the website, it's been awhile since I needed any.
Personally, I would call them and tell them you need some, tell them you need enough for all your rec's, this way you'll have a spare if you need it.
btw, if you can get channel 480, 481 it will tell you if your BBC's are working.
If you call them, tell them you need a WB6x8 multiswitch now and see if they will send you one free. It can't hurt to ask, or ask the next D* tech you see around ...
