i got home and plugged in my 4dtv and connected the coax from the dish to the back, and moved the dish to g0 with the analog receiver and flipped through the channels, and was wondering how to download the map or maps for these things. i am just gonna use them for free stuff too, it looks like i might have to use it to move the dish too because thirty minutes later my analog rec went out! now it just says standby and doesnt power on, its just a pain in the butt having to mess with the tiny screw connectors on the back of the receiver to put the wires in, i tend to lose the little screws! i guess the analog chap mont got jealous and pissed that i got a new buddy!

I would avoid connecting the receivers with the splitters you mentioned, since there is always power sent to the LNB. Having 3 receivers doing that my well likely burn something out since your analog unit went out 30 minutes later. You might try a different LNB for a test.
