Question about RCA DRD485RG DirecTV DTV Receiver
Direct tv Receiver... worked one week and NOT the next. Started as pixalated picture. Re-power box and "searching for Sat" NO pix. Did a "dish pointing" exercise. Signal would drop in and out at 93 points but not Lock. Now .. another week later .. Re-power .. No Sig indicated at all. Checked box on a known good Satelite cable feed.. Box booted but NO Signal indication at all. My other Sat box worked normally with both Sat Dish feeds.
The "front end" of your Receiver might be defective. Since your other unit is working then what might be happening is the signal to your unit might be dropping, to check this I would use a Satellite power meter, however if you do not have one you can use your other unit and connect it to the cable that your supposed defective unit is connected to. If the unit works then the problem is the supposed defective unit, if the unit does not work then this denotes a possible cable problem. Tell me if this works for you?
