Finally got time to add an outlet and mount DPH 42switch indoors.This is a continuation of an earlier post.

I got a H3, wireless Joey, a DPH 42 switch. I have a 1000.4 dish with DPP Turbo HD Eastern Arc LNBF.

The LNBF can get 77, 61.5 and 72. I plugged all three LNB leads into the DPH 42 at inputs 1,2, and 3. I am getting 72 on the check switch on all 4 tuners and a blank second column, which I assume is 77 (See photo). I am not getting anything on 61.5 which has the HD content and local channels. I used Hipkats recommendation to hook up the Hopper (See attached again). SInce I didn't need the out puts to the Joey(s), yet, I put terminators on them.

I know 77 is redundant in the EA because it has SD content for ourHD channel package.

Any help would be appreciated.

I guess my first thought would be that you’re absolutely sure that Dish is pointed in correctly. I know while I’ve been out here in Buffalo were getting that a lot of times 72 will show up super buddy but I’m not hitting the 72 it’s whichever satellite is just to the west, possibly the 77. I have to move it just a tiny bit to the east and then it comes in.

I got it. For some reason the RG6 wasn't attached to the 61.5 port on the LNB. Thanks for the help. I blame the installer. (Me).
