The switch connects to the receivers and dish with standard coaxial cables to divide the satellite signal so separate programs can be enjoyed in different rooms. I cut the cord from the wall and connected the direct tv cord to the wall. It sounds like you need to tell us a lot more detail about where you're starting. Neither coax cable picked up any channels. Not the Walmart types that are brittle and have horrible insulation. However when I disconnect from the outside dish and bring the antenna inside the house and hook it up directly to the antenna outlet on the tv I get like 50 plus channels……My question is why is it when, I hook it up to the outside old dish mount and use the existing dish coax I get no signal? Paraclipse mesh dish and 10 ft.
Don't know if we had to authorize it to get updates; I wasn't involved in the installation. If a channel alternates between languages, it may confuse newcomers who, for example, might find a channel on the English list but hear it in Arabic at the time they tune in. However, you should be able to get the six towers depending on the power they broadcast at and actual distance and signal type. You will need a 4 Way Splitter to distribute the feed. Also, is there a splitter installed in the line too? And one goes into the house where the dvr is. It works exactly the way I described earlier with the exception of it being a four port splitter.
Do i need to use 2 separate antennas for each coaxial or just put a splitter on the antenna and hook the dual coaxial to it? If I plug into the antenna from the dish on roof, this power unit shows it plugs into it and the power unit goes to the tv. Nish August 25, 2017 at 1:56 am I finally got the courage to climb up to my dish on the edge of my roof. Buy a multi-switch with jacks for three or more receivers at an electronics store. You are trying to remove the coax cables from the dish cone right? Does anyone have any experience with using this antenna and what are your thoughts of it? My question is — do I need to ground this setup? Then I have a coax coming out of the other side of the splitter into the house. But we could save so much between now and April if we do this! After hours on a ladder trying to pry that thing off, I finally got it. It really is just a matter of pointing the dish and connecting it to your reciever. When I ask Directv to shut me off, what happens when you use the antenna through their cables? For cable, if you are in the forest, the only other alternative is satellite internet mounted to the roof.
To solve a particular problem with a particular receiver, your best sources of information are: the receiver's instruction manual, the dealer who sold the receiver to you, the receiver manufacturer's web site, and online forums devoted to your brand of receiver. I went back up to the roof and unscrewed the cable that was going through the arm of the dish and was connected to the antenna. Just as you occasionally find money on the sidewalk, it's nice when it happens, but you don't plan on it. What antenna brand and model are you using? With so many channels to choose from, there's always something to watch, but individual channels come and go without warning. Again, thanks so much for this site and your help.
Nancy August 5, 2015 at 12:06 am Thank you for your quick reply. You are simply just using the same cable that the dish used. Hi… I hooked up my new antenna to the existing dish antenna and I am getting no signal to my tv when I go inside and try to scan for channels. I have no idea what you mean by that description, it sounds like it might be 3 things, but what are they and what are they for? The antenna is pointing at the same angle as the satellite used to, and is pointing over the roof ridge line. I used a small level to check my mast before tightening it down. Ok so im begining to think reading too many forum posts is getting me way too confused. My one worry, however, is reconnecting the direct tv cord will interrupt my cable internet since the signal travels through the same coaxial cables through the house.
Again it had a red stripe so was easy to find. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. There are lots of different models, most of which perform basic functions the same way. It seems to be well made and sturdy. If you get no channels then a signal booster may be needed.
Even if you don't have a motor, you might feel like adding one later, so it's generally a good idea to make sure your receiver can drive one. Most dish mounts have marks on them to indicate this. Just hoping there is a simpler way of troubleshooting this…. Because of our friendly helpful atmosphere SatelliteGuys quickly became America's Satellite Information Source! Mass, my old dtv system used a swm, single wire multiswtich , 1;will an antenna work through a swm? Looks like Dish never attatched it as it stops right before it! Norman May 31, 2017 at 4:08 pm Is the ground really not required? There are a few fta satellites out there which broadcast a variety of channels all around the world. If the coax is okay and you add the amplifier, it should solve your issue.
You will need to point your antenna in a certain direction for best reception depending on where you live. Some channels come and go, but around 230 are always available for free. We are a network of independent installers, repair technicians and dealers of satellite, cable, home theater, security and other communications services. The problem is there is dual coaxial running out of the old Dish network satellite and into the house. I have disconnected both antenna coax cables from the Solo Node as well as the one running into the house. To schedule an appointment or learn more.
