Your dish has move outta line with the satellite and thats why your getting that message, you need to by a satellite finder and tune your dish back into the satellite.

Is there a difference between a satellite receiver and a cable receiver?


Bunches. Cable boxes don't receive per se. They unscramble a TV signal that the cable company puts on the cable. A satellite receiver takes a hi frequency RF signal that it recovers from the antenna(dish and electronics) converts it to a lower frequency. It then demodulates the signal and processes the audio and video components so you can see and hear the program.

Whenever I use location function using GPS, the phone just hangs. Any solution?


  • This may not fix the problem but here are some tips that will help. When it is "just hanging" it is trying to receive a satellite signal. These are helpful tips to receiving that signal.
  1. Make sure you are outside and in the open. This is a phone and while it has GPS functions you have to be in the most optimal position.
  2. GPS units that work well have an antenna made to receive satellite signals faster than the phone antenna.
  3. Make sure you are standing still and not driving or walking fast. You have to give the satellites time to lock in on your position.
  4. Bad weather or even an overcast can effect satellites transmissions.
  5. Satellites move around and sometimes they are temporary a bit out of range.
  6. If a signal is not found try again a bit later and see if the satellites signals are being received better.

Satellite stations


Make sure the satellite receiver is properly connected to the television and that you are on the right input. Then make sure that the satellite receiver is properly connected to the cable outlet (common problem; people get the co-axial hook ups on the box mixed up).

If you are still not getting any signal, see if you can find the signal quality or signal reading in the main menu. Make sure that you have a signal at least over 80% (a few 0's on individual transponders are fine). IF you are getting some of your transponders, it's probably an issue with a connection, the dish, or the multiswitch. If you are not getting any signal at all, the cable is probably not connected to the system.

Sometimes, satellite receivers do go bad (just like any other electronic). If you know that the cable is good and that it's connected to the system and you try to hook up another receiver to the cable and that one works, then you can conclude that the receiver in question is faulty.

No satellite signal


Some vehicles have a coating in the windshield that can interfere with the GPS unit receiving the satellite signal. It is not the unit's fault. You may need to purchase an external antenna to allow your unit to work inside your vehicle. These are available at www.garmin.com or at your local GPS retailer.

My receiver comes on and I get the error message "Acquiring Signal" and everything appears to be connected. Just started doing this. Using the Aux. jack in my Nissan.


First...you still need a sirius antenna plugged into the device. If you just started using this you may just need to resend the signal. Just call the sirius/xm people and follow the recorded prompts to send a new satellite signal. Then make sure you are parked somewhere that it is receiving a good signal and wait. It could take up to 30 minutes to reset completely.

Can i get fm signal from a satellite dish we no longer use? This is still attached to the roof. I would like to use that coaxial cable from the dish and connect to my receiver.


No, you won't get significant signal in the FM spectrum from your satellite LNB coax. The dish is tuned to pick up signals of a very different frequency, and aimed to reject any signals not coming from a very specific direction -- up where the satellites are.

For FM, you need to receive signals from ground-based transmitters, in a different frequency range.

That said, you can totally use the coax to bring signals from your rooftop down to your stereo. To do this, you'd need to get up on the roof, disconnect the coax from your satellite dish and attach it to an FM antenna.

Best of luck!

MENU PICTURE ON TV BUT NO CHANNELS


This is a problem with weak signal strength, You will need to find a better place to put your television so it can receive enough signal to operate correctly. If this does not solve the problem, you will need to check the satellite box for problems with receiving the signal from the satellite. You may need help from the satellite company to check the signal strength output and input levels to make sure its working properly. I hope this information helps you solve you problem with the loss of satellite signal in your television. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!

GPS takes a long time to receive satellite signal.


You probably are just in a bad location where satellites are not reachable. All these units work from the same satellites and recieve them the same so it wouldn't matter what brand you have. I highly doubt that the powerlines and cell towers are effecting the transmission.

Combining output from dish home distribution with ota antenna


You should have your system setup in the following manner below:

You also will only be able to receive the HD locals with a HD OTA antenna. It is possible that you will need to turn the satellite off in this room to view the OTA's effectively.

Also you should use a splitter as depicted in the picture by the red boxes to combine signals of this frequency. The blue box is the diplexer on the incoming satellite feed and the black box is the seperator that most dual tuners use. If yours does not utilize this device you will have another cable coming from the outside of the house to the back of the receiver. The location of the ports on the back of the receiver in my diagram may differ in position on your receiver so obviously connect them to the proper port. I hope this ressolves the issue and there is no need to seperaate the signal at the remote tv as it will only be a duplicate of the same signal you have connected already as OTA and the TV2 backfeed are of the same frequency range.
