DPH42 now available

Thanks for the response JSheridan. That seemed reasonable to me but I didn't know if the DPH42 had to be connected to the LNB.

Just be sure to use the trunk outputs on the side of the DPP44 and not the regular outputs to feed the DPH42.

Understand, the regular outputs would just be for the 211s. A power inserter would be needed one the 211 cable on port 1 on the DPP44 to power that switch and another power inserter on the coax from the Hopper 3 to power the DPH42.

I've been in contact with Mark at DishDepot about upgrading my existing system to two Hopper 3s.

My present system configuration is as follows:
61.5 - Winegard DS-2117 satellite dish with Dish Pro Single LNBF.
72.7 - Winegard DS-2117 satellite dish with Dish Pro Single LNBF.
118.7 – Dish 500+ satellite dish with Dish Pro DSS/FSS Dual Band LNBF.
The LNBFs are connected to a DPP44 which is connected to a Duo Node.
Connected to the Duo Node are two Hopper with Slings and one 4K Joey .

He indicated that I must be swap out the Dish 500+ LNBF to the new style international LNBF with the built-in switch and that I would receive 119, 118.7, 110, via the International Dish 500+. I would have to connect my 61.5 dish to get my Philadelphia locals.

I really would like to keep my reception for 61.5 and 72.7 on the two 30" Winegard satellite dishes since they have greatly reduced rain fade problems.

Recently I had to relocate my 118.7 dish because the growth on my neighbors trees were creating line-of-sight issues. He refuses to trim them even at my expense. If they continue to grow I might have to relocate the dish again in the future.

Based on the line-of-sight issues with 118.7, I am hesitant to add the 110 and 119 satellites to my system.

Is it possible to install the new style international LNBF and connect only port 3 that is labeled for the 118.7 satellite? Could I hook it up that way to the DPP44 on my present system to try it out?

If it does work with the DPP44 for only 118.7 reception, will it work that way on a DPH42?

Thanks,

Bob

The hybrid LNB will NOT work for two H3s. You would keep your existing LNBs and replace the DPP44 with a DPH42. You can receive up to 4 satellites with that switch so your current dish arrangement should work as is.
 
There was no mention of a hybrid LNB.
Mark indicated the existing Dish Pro DSS/FSS Dual Band LNBF would not work for 118.7 if connected to a DPH42.
This is the LNB he wants me to install for 118.7

I appreciate all of the feedback but it appears that I'm not communicating my needs properly:(
I want to connect the DPH 42 to receive signals from the 61.5, 72.7 and 118.7 satellites.
I don't want or need to receive signals from the 110, 119 and 129 satellites.
Well, I would think it will work as long as you don't have the Hybrid LNBs.

This is what I was thinking. But have one question, can the power inserter for the DPH42 be installed between the solo hub and the Hopper 3 or does it have to be between the DPH42 and the solo hub as shown here?
I saw the attachment, that is what generated the question. I guess I'm basically asking will the solo hub pass through the power if the inserter is installed on the Hopper side.

The reason the power inserter is upside down in the attached pic is because the inserter's To Switch port is to the DPH42 switch and the To Receiver port is to the Hopper 3's To Hub port. View attachment 127186 View attachment 127186

I contacted Dish via email at ExecutiveCustomerService@dish.com about activating two Hopper 3s on my account. I like hardcopy communications rather than phone calls.

I promptly received a positive response from a Case Manager in the Executive Escalations Department who offered to personally have them activated when I'm ready.

I also inquired about using my Dish Pro DSS/FSS Dual Band LNBF on the DPH42 for 118.7 reception. He checked and got back to me that it will work and sent me a copy of a diagram for such an installation for international customers on the eastern arc. A copy is attached.

Based on that response, I ordered a DPH42 and a Hybrid DUO Hub from DishDepot last week that I received and installed yesterday.

I'm happy to report that my two Hoppers with Sling and 4K Joey are all able to receive programming from the 61.5, 72.7 and 118.7 satellites. :clapping

I am now in communication with Mark at DishDepot to order 2 Hopper 3s with production software version U337 or later so that they recognize the DPH42.

Great customer service from Dish!

Well I am now a happy owner of a two Hopper 3, one 4K Joey system receiving programming from the 61.5, 72.7 and the 118.7 satellites.

I ordered all of the hardware from Mark at DishDepot. I picked up the two Hopper 3s from UPS this morning that Mark pre-checked to assure that they had the software version required to recognize the DPH42.

I immediately removed my two Hopper with Slings and installed the two Hopper 3s up to the point of requiring activation.

I then emailed the Case Manager in the Executive Escalations Department with the receiver and smart card numbers.

Within 5 minutes he called me and he removed the Hoppers with Sling and activated my Hopper 3s while I was on the phone.

I cannot give enough kudos to Mark at DishDepot and the Case Manager at Dish for their assistance and help in getting this accomplished.

Have a great weekend everyone!
