Re: one fuzzy Tv one works fine
Okay, we work with what we have available to us but the screw on connectors are...... Try reversing the splitter so the single port faces away from the line that runs into the back of tv2 and connects to the the line from outside. Also check to ensure none of the wire braid has come into contact with the center conductor- copper wire, stinger. I do not know how you prepared the cable so I will say that the white dielictric should be cut squarely and terminate flush with bottom of the connector seat. The diagram is a cut away view and is very crude but I think you can garner the idea. If you need more assistance let me know.

You have an HD TV right? Has it worked before now? Make sure the cables are going into the right in and out on TV and dvr-r and make sure the cables are secure. Now make sure your TV is turned to the right setting or right channel to view dvr-r make sure dvr-r has cable/satalite cable going to in cable port and the out cable on the dvr-r is going to the TV (the port may say beside it what setting TV needs to be on to view it if not refer to your TV manual) if smart TV that recognizes new hardware unhook the port and turn TV on without it and then go see if its listed in your activity menu...if still listed try and figure out how to edit it and remove it then turn TV off hook back up and turn it back on and it should recognize it and you name it and set it all up and see if that resolves the issue. No make or model of either electronics make it very difficult to help but I hope I said something that makes sense and it works. Good luck
Is TV 2 off the 322 receiver being back fed from the receiver or do you have a direct connection to the 3rd room? If it is a direct connection, you would screw the coax from the 3rd bedroom directly to the TV 2 Home Distribution channel 21-69 out port.
If you are back feeding, you need 2 diplexers that connect 1) by the receiver and 2) between the receiver and the 3rd TV. The back feeding will use the same cable coming from the dish to the receiver.
If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
You will need to split the signal with a 900mgz splitter between the living room and other room. if your pic is fuzzy you have a bad splitter or bad cable, try replacing these one at a time and it should clear up. If your getting a sat pic but ti is fuzzy its for sure in the line somewhere fro teh splitter.
Had repair man come. The coax connection going to TV from receiver had went bad in the receiver. The other connectors in box worked but not the coax anymore that is why the box worked on other TV since using video and sound cables. Got new box for signing up for another 18 months with Direct TV. Didn't have to have splitter to just get Satalite so that wasn't the problem at all. Any of the splitters I had would have worked.
Your upstairs tv is connected via a coaxial cable and you can do a few things to get programming to the third room.
The first is to locate the wire that enters the upsairs room that currently has tv and insert a splitter by cutting the line to that room and running the out ports to the rooms and the in port to the other end of the wire that you cut. This will give you the same picture in both rooms.
If you have a system that does not use diplexers to backfeed the second TV you can backfeed the 3-4 cable going to the TV1 by cutting the line and adding a splitter with the inport running to the 3-4 port on the receiver and one of the out ports going to your tv1 and the other outport going into the UHF side of a diplexer. You will need to cut the Satellite feed into the back of the receiver on the back side of the seperator and connect the seperator to the SAT port of the diplexer. The IN/OUT port of the diplexer will connect to the end of the sat feed cable that goes to the wall plate. This will allow you to go into the attic of outside of the house and find the sat cable that feeds the TV one and break it there and put the IN/OUT port of that diplexer facing the TV1 room and the SAT port connecting to the other end of the cable you broke. The remaining UHF port will be the feed for the new room that you wish to connect. This set up will allow for viewing the same program as that at the TV1 location however you will need to change the channels at the TV1 location or buy an IR to UHF converter to allow you to be able to work the system independently from the receiver. Hope this answered your question. IF you need further assistance please contact me and thanks for using Fix Ya.
Okay if you have a seperator you should be connected with the ch21-69 port running into the diplexer as above. Outside on the second diplexer the uhf/vhf port should run to the second tv. The sat port on this diplexer should be ran to the ground block and then to the dish. Assuming this is correct we should check the connectors to ensure they are made up properly. The white dielectric should terminate flush with the inner most part of the connector where the wire enters the connector. Ensure that all of the dielectric has been removed from the center conductor at all locations and that no strands of the metal braiding has wrapped around or come in contact with the center conductor as this will cause the same issue you describe. If there are any barrels in the cable run and or you are using a wall plate ensure that they are high frequency barrels. Most will have a red or blue center on them the clear or white ones are low frequency. Ensure that your center conductor is no longer than a 16th beyond the end of the connector. Check the modulation on the receiver for tv2 and make sure it is on 60 air or 73 cable and that the tv2 is set the same. To check the modulation press menu 6-1-5 on the Dish remote. This can be done at either location. If all this is good we may need to consider the distance ran from TV1 to TV2. Also any breaks in the line will cause a decibel loss degrading the signal so if there are mirror images are barrels in the run it may be causing this issue as well. Lastly lets check to ensure that the port on the receiver is not generating the issue. If you connect the cable that is on the 3-4 out on the receiver to the 21-69 out and tune TV1 to the station you have TV 2 set to you will be able to see if the picture is clear from the port of the receiver. You can also run the cable that was originally on 21-69 out to the 3-4 out on the receiver and change TV2 to ch 3 to see if the issue still exists. The final way to check to see if the TV2 is faulty is to ru a line from the 21-69 out on the back of the receiver directly to tv2 inside the home so you will no the are only to connections and no breaks in the cable. If this last one produce the same fuzzy picture after all other steps the TV is faulty. You may try the opposing setting to see if that clears it up e.g. going from 60 air to 73 cable or vice versa. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
You have what is called a diplexer in the back of the the receiver in the front room.It looks like a splitter.If it is put back on in the wrong way you will have a fuzzy screen.look at the diplexer,you will see in/out which would be the input on a regular splitter,then you will have one side that would be one of the 2 outputs that will say SAT,the other side is UHF/VHF.The chances are that when you plugged them back in you had them swapped.Try changing the 2 cables around.If that doesnt work try changing the assigned channel to 68.You can also try doing a auto channel search on the tv in the room without the receiver.this will find the channel that the front room receiver is broadcasting the signal on.Chances are though that your diplexer wires are configured incorrectly.remember,the in/out should plug into the back of the receiver (satellite in)and the UHF/VHF should be going to the other room with the problem and the SAT side of the diplexer should be wired to the satellite dish.GOOD LUCK! rate me with the outcome please.
ok if its only the rf cable and the ac cord yes you can do it your self.you have one cable out from the sat reciver going to the dish. Find an area that the pooch didnot chew through cut off the bad part of the wire. find the wire that goes to the tv set. if its the coax disconnect from the reciver on both sides and go to the store and buy a new cable (unless you have coax wire and know how to put on f fittings) also while your there buy a small extenstion for the other cable you cut. also your gonna need a a female barrel connector as we;ll as an rg6 type rf fitting for the end you cut. have the guy at the store explain to ya how to put on a f fitting. If the ac cord was chewed buy a simple cheap extenstion cord too. Go home and first put back on the cable you took off the output of the sat reciver and the other end to your tv set. then put on the f fitting the guy explained to ya how to put on and then install the barrel connector then the short extention wire to the other side of the barrel connector then the other end of the rxtenstion cable to the sat output. Now if the power cord is chewed im surprised the pooch is not fryed!!!lol Simply cut off the bad part take the extention cord and cut of the end you dont need take off about 1 and a 1/2 inches of the insulation on bothe parts(reciver and cord) twist together and tape separatly or use wire nuts on them . then you are good to go. BUt one more little thing are you using video cables between the tv and the sat. reciver?? well why didnt you say so LOL simplyu pull out of both ends and go to rat shack or something like them and buy an inexpensive pair of cables and remeber yellow is always video red is alway right audio and white is left audio Hope this clears things up for ya.!!!!
