Question about Directv (R10) DTV Receiver / 70-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

We have Directv and the dish is about 200 ft away from the house because it it the only way to get a view of the southern sky. Is there a way to get another Tv working independently from the main set without running another line from the dish? Have tried a self powered multi switch and it did work, but with only half the total channels on each tv set.

Unfortunately there is no way to hook it up independently w/o connecting to the dish. the only other option you would have is to run an analog splitter but that would only allow you to watch the same program you are watching where the receiver is located.

How can i get my garmin nuvi 1300 to pick up satellites?


Hello,

GPS satellite reception is best achieved when the unit is outdoors and has a good clear view of an unobstructed sky. The majority of the GPS satellites orbits are around the equator so if you are in the northern hemisphere, the best reception would be achieved with a clear southern sky.

Sony Satellite Dish Antenna Operating Instructions

Operating a Sony satellite dish is a process that first requires correct dish placement to ensure strong signal reception. Additionally, the satellite receiver must be installed, and only then can you use it to put the dish in operating order via the use of its signal meter screen. Fortunately, you do not need to be a professional to complete these operations properly.

  1. Initial Sony Satellite Mounting
    • Look around for a suitable mounting area for your satellite dish. This mounting area should be free of any debris and also allow for a flat mounting area. It's best to utilize a hand-held level to measure and make sure that your Sony satellite dish lies flush with the mounting surface beneath it. Also, look to the skies above before settling on a mounting area, as obstructions such as trees, power lines and tall buildings can block signal reception for your Sony satellite dish. Once a spot is chosen, go ahead and crudely aim your Sony satellite dish to the southern sector of the sky above. This will save you some time later when you return for further adjustments

Dish network vip622 freezes and needs to be reset... just to freeze and need to be reset again and again. Dish thinks it is satellite signal and is sending someone to the house. Some websites point to a...


The VIP622 has a freezing/rebooting issue. It is very unlikely that it is a signal issue. Could be a known grounding fault issue with the 622. There is an easy way to fix it if that is the case. Unplug the DVR, remove any of the coax cables in the back of the DVR, touch the center wire against the outside metal casing, then re-attach the cables.

Beyond that, you are just rebooting, and holding the power button for five seconds to do a reset a few times to see if it takes. If not, you may need a replacement DVR. It is even possible that you may go through a few before you get one that works reliably again.

Trying to find out what my tvs settings should be on to hook up m


Have you tried channel 3 or the video input channels.
The Tv only needs the one channel that the signal from the box is sent on.
All the viewing channels will be changed through the satellite box.

Pixelating & freezing of picture


Hi, Pixelating and freezing are symptoms of loss of signal. You need to check all of your connections. Check for water in any connection. Check your satellite signal strength on each satellite and if low or they are all not there you could have a bad LNB but you need to check the LNBs and the multiswitch for poor or bad connections. Also check for any obstructions in the dish view to the sky or for anything that may not have been tightened down on the dish. Snow and ice builtup will cause this problem as well. Good Luck! Let me know what you find.

Calibrating & Aligning the Meade 10" LX200 GPS Telescope in the Southern Hemisphere


  1. Do a Calibrate Sensors
  2. Do a Train Drive in RA and also DEC
This makes sure that the scope is calibrated properly.

  1. Do an AUTOMATIC ALIGN
  2. when asked to center star, look for the BRIGHTEST star that is close to the scopes field of view. It will be that star you need to used the arrow keys on to centre it in the scope eyepiece and press enter.
  3. This star can be as much as a HANDS distance away from the centre of view
  4. If you cannot identify the star it is asking you to use, press the SCROLL DOWN key to choose another star, keep doing this until you see a star you recognise.
That's it!

You can also hold down the MODE key for about 4 seconds and scroll through the scope info. Make sure you have the correct location coordinates ( Lat/Long) and the correct time set.

Select a bright object first such as a planet and GOTO it. Once you have manually centered it in the eyepiece, press ENTER and hold it for 6 seconds, the handset will say " Press ENTER to sync", press enter and you have updated the scope with the coordinates of that object.

Directv D10 receiver


I guess the obvious question is, do you have a DirecTV dish installed on your house? If you do, then most likely the cable you have plugged into the Satellite Input on the back of the receiver isn't connected to the dish. I would recommend calling DirecTV and having them send a tech out to double check the system.

Hi there, I live in a apartment on the side of my bosses house & he has 2 sky boxes, his is sky plus & mine is a normal box. Their both run off the same contract not separate. But when my boss...


if it is the same as directv - you used a splitter on the cable between the 2 boxes - you need to us a multi switch - or dual lnb

fyi - the boxes change channels by varying the voltage to the dish - if 2 boxes are giving different voltages it does not work
thanks
