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

Call Dish.
If it is showing + or - 5 on your system info screen, then you need to have the LNBF replaced.

I have a foxstat -HDR humax box and I am getting no or bad signal on the TV downstairs. I can get some channels but not all.


I suspect that the box upstairs is a Freesat box; a Freeview box requires a feed from an aerial, not a dish.

The problem you are seeing may be caused by water in the cables, if they are not sealed at the LNB. The LNB may be failing, but dish misalignment is more likely.

As there is an unused output on the LNB, try swapping one of the feeds with a poor signal to it.

No signal on my starview s2828+ box


Three things here the unit the cable or the LNB.
Simple things first Cable
1.cable
Check the satellite plugs on Both ends are correctly fitted and there is no shorting of the core central cable and the shield. Check the cable with a meter put a loop( connect core to shield at one end) on the other end and check resistance.
2. Unit
Check your unit with a know good setup a friends perhaps.
3. LNB the unit on the arm of the dish
You should be able to get a signal from the LNB with a alignment meter. or replace with known good to test

hope that helps

The problem with checking signal strength is you have to know exactly what sattelites are used and what transponders there on. dish net uses 119 and 110 and sometimes 61.5 your best bet is to check sattelite menu. Hit menu once that comes up hit button number 6, then button number 1 then button number 1 again. then you have to run a test switch its right in the middle, If it finds anything or low signal there will be a check details or error message in red on the bottom of the screen, it will tell you exactly what is wrong. Also one more thing is you can go to menu then hit button number 6, then number 1, then number 3. If the signal is good on the t.v. then it is probably what they call L.O. Drift or Lnb drift which that check will tell you, this is common for older dish systems especially super dishes, which are the big dishes if this is it then you have to schedule and appointment and they will upgrade your dish. If this is too much to take in, you can always call customer service they will walk you through the same thing step by step.

We have an old dish network dish and LNB with a new dishnetwork receiver. When we can get the signal up to 5, the screen goes blank and we cannot lock the signal in. Diagnostics state there is no...


Hi mfpayton with the install of the brand new receiver wealways want to make sure all connections are tight. And after all connectionsare hand tight we will need to run the Check Switch Test. It will provide thestrongest signal to your home and you will see the signal move up into the 65percent range. If after the Check Switch Test it still is a low signal we mayneed to check the connections from the Dish and LNB that is an issue we wouldneed to come out on. I will leave the link to show you how to do the CST.http://www.dishnetwork.com/SupportSection/complete-sig-loss

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.

Hello,

The 311 receiver is normall a pretty tough machine. Getting a 70 % signal is normal, and it shouldn't fluctuate too much unless you have something like a tree or other obstacle in the way.

85% of the problems with these older systems is the LNB. I see it all the time.

My first suggestion would be changing the LNB (the eye of the dish). You say that your system is 10 years old, and there are a lot of LNB's out there that go bad over time. It may say that you are getting signal, but the quality may be so poor that the receiver may not know what to do with it.

If you have 2 LNB's (separate eyes) on your dish, then you have two singles or duals with a switch 21. I'd remove these and replace them with a Legacy Twin LNB. If you have a Twin LNB, then replace it with another Twin (especially if it has "lot" number printer in the front of it, these are notoriously bad).

I hope this helps you...

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.

Dish 311 won't detect switches


dishnetwork is kind of tricky on the detect switch thing. sometimes if you are having troubles on just one receiver you have to run detect switch over and over again, sometimes as much as maybe 20 or 30 times. if it still doesn't work, hope you have a service plan so they will send you another unit to switch out. also try a different LNB ( low noise block downconverter) and check switch a few times. i know that sounds kind of stupid, but it works sometimes.
