[FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']I'm new to the forum and Dish Network. GREAT forum!!!![/FONT]
[FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']I have DP-500 on my home. I have a legacy dish(500) at my cabin. When I bring my 311 box up to the cabin for the weekend, I don't get the local channels. Works fine from home. Cabin is in the same spot beam. I checked to see what was different between the two. In device info, one says DP500(home) the other says SW21(cabin). I get 110 and 119 reception @ about 65% on both. I brought my brothers Dish 311 box up and it works like a charm. He has the same legacy dish @ his home. Is there a difference between DP500 and SW21? Do I need to change something in the 311 box? Any help would be appreciated.[/FONT]

If the dish using the SW21 has DishPro lnb's, it is the SW21 switch causing you the problem. You either need legacy lnb's to work with the SW21 or a DP21 switch with DishPro or DishProPlus lnb's.

Does the 311 box have anything to do with this problem?

Why does one 311 box work and another 311 box not work? The box that works is connected to the same type legacy dish 500 dish. Is there a difference in the older 311 boxs and newer 311 box.
