Re: receiver 625`tv 2 fuzzy
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.

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.
Are you still having problems with your TV 2 off the 625 receiver? You have a cable off the back of the receiver, TV 2 Home Distribution. That's feeding to your TV 2 location. You might check to make sure it is secure. You can also see if that cable screws into a diplexer if it is being back feed through the satellite cables. These are all potential problem spots, especially since you said it was working before. I hope this helps.
There are common connections to each receiver but there are unique connections also depending on the receiver. Solo receivers have a coax cable coming from the Dish outside connected to Satellite In. Duo receivers and DVR HD receivers have the coax cable that comes from the dish outside that connects to Satellite 1 and Satellite 2 using a splitter. There is also a cable (coax, RCA (yellow, white, red) or component (green, blue, red - video, white, red - audio) or an HDMI if HD) connected from the receiver to the TV 1. For a duo receiver TV 2 may be backfed on the cable coming from the dish outside using diplexers. This may sound confusing but you can call 1-800-333-3474 for assistance.
You may have a bad port on the back of the receiver, a cut or disconnected wire somewhere on that side of the system or a bad diplexer if the system is not straight wired to TV2. The easiest way to verify whether the port on the receiver is bad is to connect that line directly to TV 1 off the back of the receiver. Remember to place TV one on the CHANNEL TO CHECK IF IT IS GOOD. If you have picture then you have a bad diplexer.
What you are looking for is called a mirrored location. Its a location that mirrors either tv1 or tv2. It can be installed using simply a few splitters depending on how you want it ran. If you do it your self it will save you alot of money. If not Dish Network will charge up to $99 for a reinstall
If you have one cable leading from the wall toward the back of the receiver you can disconnect the seperator and diplexer (if equipped) from the SAT 1 and SAT 2 ports and connect the line from the wall directly to one of the ports and run a check switch test. You should get a 1 of 2-4 depending on lnb type on the tuner you connected the line to and a 1 of 38 on the other. Perform this operation for both SAT 1 AND SAT2 as described above. If you have the 1 of 38 appearing only on the port that the line is not connected to then the receiver is good and the problem may be the seperator which is the silver device that has two wires going to the back of the receiver initally and one port connected to the SAT port of a diplexer. Disconnect the diplexer and hook the seperator to the receiver and run the SAT line from the wall to the single port of the seperator and do a check switch. If you don't get a 1 of 38 it is good and you have a bad diplexer. If your system does not use diplexers and you are experiencing the loss on TV2 you may have a bad TV2port on the receiver. You can take the wire from the TV2 PORT(in home distribution system) and place it on the 3-4 that the TV1 line is run from. Then go to TV2 and put that tv on channel 3 and see if you have picture. If the problem is at TV1 reverse the process by connecting the line on the 3-4 ut to the TV2 port and putting TV1 on chanel 60 or 73 and see if you get picture. if either produces picture on the bad tv the port to that TV is faulty. If you were still unable to get picture it may be a cabling, connector, barrel isssue that requires a tech to visit. Hope this assists you. Thanks for using Fix Ya.
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.
You should have your system setup in the following manner below:
You also will only be able to receive the HD locals with a HD OTA antenna. It is possible that you will need to turn the satellite off in this room to view the OTA's effectively.
Also you should use a splitter as depicted in the picture by the red boxes to combine signals of this frequency. The blue box is the diplexer on the incoming satellite feed and the black box is the seperator that most dual tuners use. If yours does not utilize this device you will have another cable coming from the outside of the house to the back of the receiver. The location of the ports on the back of the receiver in my diagram may differ in position on your receiver so obviously connect them to the proper port. I hope this ressolves the issue and there is no need to seperaate the signal at the remote tv as it will only be a duplicate of the same signal you have connected already as OTA and the TV2 backfeed are of the same frequency range.
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.
