Question about Directv D10 DTV Receiver

Dimmer switch interference

Installed a new HD receiver and slim line dish with Zinwell multi-switch into my existing system with two standard receivers and local channels via sat. All is fine until I kick on any dimmer switch in my home that controls lights. Dimmers are two different brands and ages. Tried brand new ones to no avail. Techs have come and gone and can only say "it's your problem" like nobody else has dimmers! When I turn them on, the Hd signal deteriorates immediately, pixelates and goes out while on the non-HD resolution units I only lose the local channels coming in over the small dish sat.. I lokely need some sort of filter but don't know what I need. Any ideas???
Thanks,
John

I have seen this before you have back feed thru your lines somewhere there i no ground and it is reffeding through your equipment. honestly he techs were wright i wouldnt or any of my guys wouldnt touch it because u realy need a certified electrician to come ou and find the problem andfix it before it runs your slimline dish and eciever. The switch u installed u did run all four 4 wires from he dish to the switch didnt you. Check all lines of coax but if u didnt run all four 4 lines then u will have problems. I still think u need an electrician.

Good luck,

Splitting a satellite signal to 2 tvs


Do you want to use a separate satellite receiver on each tv or just want to send the picture from one receiver to two tv's? It makes a huge difference. If you do it wrong you can damage both the satellite receiver and the tv, so be careful. Using separate receivers requires a multi switch near the dish. This is necessary because the satellite receiver sends a voltage up to the dish to operate the elecrtonics there. That voltage will damage the dish without that multi switch installed. an ordinary splitter will get the picture from one receiver to two or more tv's as long as the cable length is not too long.

Hello. There could be a couple of possibilities. First is the simplest to verify, is it a Companion Dimmer, Standard Dimmer switches or a 600W or 1000W Maestro Wireless Multi-location Dimmer. The Maestro Companion Dimmers can not be used individually, as they do not control a load, and must be used along with a Maestro or Maestro Wireless Multi-location Dimmer. The Campanion Dimmers are also a line/low voltage rating, and rated for incandescent and halogen but may not handle some flourescent fixtures. The other thing I can think of is that you may have interfearence from another item. They are radio frequency (RF) devices that communicate together for wireless control of lights. Here's two links that may be of some help, the second has downloadable install instructions.

I have a total of two standard tv's currently connected to my Dish receiver box 322. I would like to upgrade my main tv to a LCD tv. Can I still keep the 322 receiver or will I need to upgrade to a HD...


Hello, this is Nick Franta with DISH Network Customer Support.

You can still keep the 322 receiver with your new LCD tv. An HD receiver upgrade would be beneifical as well to make sure you maintain the best picture quality.

Does the dish network 322 receiver require two lines from the satellite to the receiver?


It does require 2 lines form dish unless you have a switch installed such as a dp34 or you have Dish Pro plus LNB"S on your dish and you can use 1 feed to the reciver and use a separator to separate the signal into sat 1 and sat 2 (note: a standard splitter is NOT a separator) a separator is dish brand equipment.

Sanyo tv model DS31520..is it an HD tv?


You can view the specifications here:
Sanyo DS31520
I found no mention of the needed ATSC digital tuner so you need to acquire a converter box to receive broadcast signals after the changeover. Cable and satellite reception are not affected.
I reviewed the available converters and chose the Zinwell ZAT-970.

Lost satellite signal after hooking up an hdtv


Provided you did not make any changes to the cabling through out the house there is no reason that you would have lost satellite signal except if something is in front of the dish, some one moved the dish e.g. child bumping into it if it is on a pole, or there is a major storm in your area e.g. blizzard, hurricane etc. You also may have snow build up that may have caused this issue or a form of wildlife that has decided to use the dish as a perch and is blocking the LNB's. The most likely result would be trying to split a signal that is coming from the dish going to another satellite receiver or the multi-switch. There are a few ways to get a signal to that TV.
1. RESTORE THE SYSTEM TO ITS ORIGINAL CONFIGURATION.
2. Either come off the multi-switch in the attic or outside the home and run new lines to the new receiver if you have one for this TV.
3. You can run new lines from the dish to the new TV if your system has an available port(s).
4. This is the least preferred by most homeowners as it will result in two tvs viewing the same programming- You can put a splitter into the line going from a receiver to the tv and run one of the out ports to the new tv and the other back to the original tv.
I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.

Zinwell 4x8 multi-switch


What Temp is it at?, it does heat up, and it does require room to be well vented, now remember it needs a protected area, where nothing will make contact, where that will start a fire, or Burning sensation.
