New member, first post.
As above, receiver has no voltage to lnb.
I inserted +18v manually.
I now can watch some channels, others are mia .
How does the vip211k technically "change channels" ?
Thanks

Looks like I am missing all left hand polarity channels, I tried +13v with no change in channels received.
What dish are you using? You need at least a dish 500 with a TWIN LNB, for HIGH DEFINITION you need a 1000.2 with an Eastern Arc or a Western Arc LNB.

Are you sure it is not a legacy lnb.

The dish pro lnbs "stack" the left and right frequencies so all frequencies are transmitted continuously to the receiver.

There is no 13 or 18 voltage like the old legacy lnbs require.

It's a 500 dish with single dishpro lnb pointing @ 129, how does the receiver switch between bands?
Would a legacy lnb with proper voltages switch and give me my missing channels?

Input 12200-12700 R - 11250 LO = 950 -1450 IF output
Input 12200-12700 L - 14350 LO = 2150 - 1650 IF output

The left hand polorization is transmitted in the stacked "1650-2250" range. Note that the upper range flips the order of those transponders.

The receiver provides a constant supply voltage. Around 18- 21 volts if I remember correctly.

No, because you're not seeing the channels on the 110 and 119, only the 129. It was posted above witch Dish/LNBF you need

I am now hooked into 2nd dish 500 with dpp lnb pointed at 110 and 119.
129 separate dish screwed into aux. port of dpp aimed at 110-119.
Only right hand polarities on 119 work and no switching to 110 or 129 is taking place.
How does the vip211 switch lnbs or channels if it isn't voltage?

In the immortal words of Lewis Carrol, this is getting curiouser and curiouser. A 211 should be able to handle that setup just fine. You did do a check switch, did you not?

What is the lnb type you are using on 129?

Did you run a check switch on the receiver? It will correct errors and report details of your setup

In first post I stated 211 did NOT provide any voltage.I realize something is amiss with receiver.
I added my own voltage to power lnbs.
Check switch returns same msg. as when no coax is connected to 211.
I'm just trying to replace what the 211 isn't producing and learn something at the same time.
I'm sure a new 211 would solve everything...

Get a new receiver it's the only way you'll get your service

Yeah, I think his 211 is pretty messed up if it won't emit 19V and won't send the diseq commands. Without those, how does one pick the channel one wants, if it's on another satellite than the one currently switched in??

With the addition of proper tone bursts I'm watchin all previously watched channels.
Thanks for the support.
