Question about DISH Network 301 DTV Receiver
I brought my Dish Network receiver down from my cottage to use at my primary residence. My neighbor gave me a Dish 500 satellite dish to use so I didn't have to bring my dish home from the cottage. After installing and aiming the dish, I'm getting a strong signal from 119 but for some reason satellite 110 is not being recognized on my system. Any ideas on what the problem could be? Both satellite locations, 119 and 110 worked perfectly at my cottage. I couldn't find the Dish Network 500 system listed under the "Product" area. Thanks, Lonnie My Dish 500 has been unused for 6 years. Still have 100% on 119 but can't find dish 110 to save my life. Dish Network Support no help. I've tried a new 311 receiver, changed out the connector, the LMB and the Cables. No luck
You will need a DP or Legacy twin or quad, or DPP twin without using an external switch. If you use Legacy Duals, or DP Duals you will need a switch. USUALLY a SW21 is used to combine the signals but you may have a different one in use if at all.
The primary thing to remember when using a switch is that you must use the same type of LNB as switch e.g. Legacy switches with Legacy LNB's and Dish Pro switches with Dish Pro LNB's.
Check your LNB type. Legacy LNB's have only a Dish Network Logo on them, Dish Pro has DP on them and DPP have DP PLUS on them.
One of three things could be the cause:
1. Line of site. Must be clear of all obstructions to ensure adequate signal.
2. You have a faulty switch, or conflicting LNB and switch, or no switch at all.
3 you may have a bad port on the LNB.
As a fail safe check that your mount is level and plumb. You also may have the dish pointed directly at 119. Check the Skew and elevation settings as well. If LOS IS THE ISSUE YOU MAY NEED TO RELOCATE THE DISH OR REMOVE THE OBSTRUCTION.
In some extreme cases microwave towers and High Voltage lines also pose a problem but doubt this is the case for you.
