Question about RCA DISH Network(r) 311 Satellite System

1 Answer

Dish network 119

I have 2 recievers in my house. Recently I moved the 311 to another room. and I ran the same cable off the splitter to that receiver. Now I have no 119. Ive done the check switch and it tells me "warning only one satellite connected". Now the HD receiver in the other room works fine. And the same cables run from the dish to the same splitter for both tv's. The 311 picks up 110 fine but has 0 signal for 119. Which is weird because 110 & 119 have to run through the same cable. I'm wondering if I may have switched a feed or something during a "check switch". Is there an easy way to fix this? or to somehow reset my receiver to catch both satellites? Please help!!!!!! Thanks, Kevin

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.

Added a 322 reciever to my lake house to be able to watch tv in 3rd room i had 2 standard recievers before. i installed a dish pro quad lnb & reciever had a separator w/it says dp plus 123254 tuner 2...

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.

Hi myname is Mike Houston of DISH Network and I was going over your post and whenyou move the receiver you always want to make sure all connections are in thesame place. The SAT feed coming into the house will connect to the SatelliteIn, and your TV connects to the CH4 CH3 on the back of the receiver. I willsend a link that will help with these steps.

You will need to split the signal with a 900mgz splitter between the living room and other room. if your pic is fuzzy you have a bad splitter or bad cable, try replacing these one at a time and it should clear up. If your getting a sat pic but ti is fuzzy its for sure in the line somewhere fro teh splitter.

No signal on one tuner for dual tuner box.. neither tv works.

Hi benray there is something else youcan do on that to make sure your getting the strongest signal possible. Youwill need to press the MENU-6-1-1 buttons on the remote. Select Check Switchand Test, after the test is complete select done and then check the signal andif there is still a weak signal we will need to re-point the Dish.

TV ''Dish'' not working on second TV

check sat in cable, if cracks or breaks in line can cause sfss. also on back of receiver you want to make sure that sat in cable has a little copper wire sticking straight up and that its getting a good connection on the back of the receiver.

Sat signal reaches only 1 cable outlet

you need to split the line at the receiver box. The signal from the Dish needs 18vdc to the receiver or you'll get NADA.. If I understand you correctly???

Hi. I need help finding 119!

I looks like you are picking 110W with the LNB on your left if you are facing the dish.
Try to get 119W first if you connect the cable to the 119 LNB, once you find 119W that way, you will also have 110W.
Good Luck.

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.
