SOURCE: satellite dish receiver error LNB Drift detected

actually both responses would be considered correct, except at this point with new software lnb drifts should no longer cause issues with receivers. lnb drift is a fluctuation of signal frequencies to the "crystal" in the feed horn. with current software ability to watch tv will not be effected by this

SOURCE: Can't get Dish500 satellite system set-up

If you tripod or mount is perfectly plumb and you have the correct information for the settings at your current location then you may have a faulty piece of hardware ensure all connections are tight and that all bolts on the dish are tight. Once you get 119 try gently pulling on the top of the dish and see if that increases the signal stregth and gets you 110 since it is at a higher elevation than 119. let me know if this helps.

I mounted me satellite dish and connected it but it still says I have 0% quality and level! Why? And how do I fix it??


First, double-check that the dish is correctly oriented. Even an 1 degree missalign can generate that kind of problems. Also, check that the dish is not pointing to other buildings and/or trees.
Also double check the cabling and the power supply of the LNB.

My satellite is on 129 and 119 and I want 119 and 110. I have move skew, height , and azimith with no luck. I can always get back to 129 and 119. Does the satellite default to these numbers once check...


How many coax cables are you using from your dish, 1 or 2? Do you have a switch between the dish and receivers? I am assuming your have a 1000.2 dish since you say you have the 129, 119, 110. On the LNB you have 4 coax ports. Facing the LNB, the port on the far left is for 119, the next is 110, then 129, and that last on the far right is for an additional dish. If you want to get 119 and 110, just use the 2 ports on the left. Once connected, run your check switch. I hope this helps.

If I don't have a cable or satellite television service how to install a VIP 622 DVR HD Antenna


Mount the dish on a pole or house using a mast perfectly plumb. Ensure it will give you an unobstructed view of the sky based on the information that should have come with the dish regarding your zip code for skew, elevation and azimuth settings. You will now need to run one line from the LNB on the end of the skew arm to your 622. Remember to use a seperater inside or you will need to run another line into the back of the receiver. Run a hardwire off back of the receiver's home distribution port to . Connect a line from 3-4 on back of the receiver to your TV 1. ....More to come if needed drop me another line.

I find the signal for 119west but when I go to the receiver to cancel out of the 'point/dish-signal' window and starts to download the information, it changes back to satellite 110. Is it the LNB? cables?


The receiver is not seeing 110. This could be due to a misaligned dish. This can be caused be improper skew, elevation, or azimuth setting. It also can be due to a non plumb mast which is the tube the dish mounts to if attached to the building. Your signal can be the greatest indicator of issue. If 119 is in 110 to 125 unmodified meter or 85 to 90s modified meter then you are most likely pointed directly at 119 and will need to turn the dish slightly to the left and possibly upward.

If it is not and alignment issue I would need more info on your receiver number and how you are configured.

Changed from single to twin LNB, no signal


HELLO

Here is a suggestion! Try SKEWING the LNB around a few degrees. Looking at the front of the dish, turn your LNB to the LEFT slightly (that is anti-clockwise).

Sometimes it's the little things that matter most where installation is concerned. It is also possible that due to the weight of the new LNB, the alignment may be out.

How do i fit a dual LNB so i can change channels


HELLO
A word of warning! Do not attempt to split any feed coming from a single output LNB to another satellite box - you will be asking for trouble!
Now for the solution. If you are using a standard sky minidish you will need a 40mm adaptor kit, a dual output LNB and another length of satellite cable (Webro WF100 prefereably) but I suppose RG-6 will do the job providing it is not too long (around 10-15 meters or so) a couple of F connectors and self-amalgamating rubber tape.
Power off everything! Remove the old LNB and to do this you'll notice a plastic rivet on the LNB arm of the dish which must be removed. When you have done that and the new LNB is place (don't tighten everything yet), connect your current length of cable to one output and the new length to the other (finger tight should be fine) and make sure BOTH of your boxes are connected. Remember to waterproof those LNB connections.
Power on! You should be getting pictures - if not the LNB will need skewing round a bit. Look at the dish from the front and turn the LNB in a clockwise position say the 2 o'clock position - that should do the trick. Then tighten everything.
I wish you well with it - good luck! (:-)

Dish Network - Dish 500 Satellite 110 is not being recognized


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.

Skew not holding


one way is to go out to the dish and physically turn the feed assembly 90 degrees one way or the other. you could be having a problem with the polarotor motor. they are inexpensive now(less than 20 dollars) and really easy to replace. it is the little box on the feed, has three wires coded white, black (or blue) and red.

Only picking up one satellite


Thank you for the info.
Here is what you can try:
Try to get the Echo 8.10(110W) first by connecting the LNB on your left if you are behind the dish. On the first transponder from 110W you need to get anything better than 90% quality.
After this is done you may have to play with the skew until you get 119W. On 119W the first transponder frequency is 12239Mhz.
The skew will depend on where you live.
Check here for more info on the parameters to get your dish align.
BTW, What kind of receiver do you have?
