Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I have an Oyster satellite system on a Hymer motorhome. The dish locates 2 Astra satellites but the black box won't lock on. Is it fixable? If so do you know a repairer in the South West (Cornwall) Thank you. Regards. Peter Crossingham

SOURCE: dish network box hookup question.

Are you sure that the antenna in isn't threaded? You may be looking at the wrong jack... All antenna inputs are threaded co-axial "F" connectors. If you ARE sure, could you post a pic of the back panel?

Lonnie, You have a simple problem,the 119 satellite is lower in the sky than the 119 if you make sure the pole you are mounted on is straight and plum ,then simply raise the dish a few elevation degrees and turn the dish to the left.Your dish is aimed low and to the right.

chances are that you have only lined up the dish to pick up one satellite. there are several satellites up there for dish and its easy to miss the ones that you need. try to line up the dish keeping this in mind. if that doesn't work, write back.

SOURCE: flashing boxes on screen

Regardless of what the satellite company says, I would find a way to try another satellite reciever to start with. I have seen this from cable boxes and satellite recievers many times. I have also seen this with a bad LNB, distribution amplifier, or a bad active splitter, or a bad cable, or a bad connector.

There is a data loss somewhere, and the set is seeing what we call aliasing. This is a loss of data, and it shows as blocks.

It is possible for your set have internal aliasing if there is a fault on one of the processor boards. The only way you will easily know if the problem is external or internal to the set is to try another source.

From your description, if other sources work with the set, then this strongly rules out the set. To easily know if the fault is on the input that the sat reciever uses, if possible swap the position with the DVD player.

On the sat system, a defect in the reciever, the LNB, or any LNB splitters or a relay, or a bad connector, can also cause aliasing because of a signal loss.

Oyster satellite dish wont go up it just saying Y Blocked


Get a small pointed screw driver and check that
the plug /wire connections into the plug going into the control box are all pushed in oK.

Also you might have low battery voltage, run the engine for 10-15 mins to charge the battery.

It is possible to fold the dish manually by getting on the roof and undoing the two bolts one either side then folding the dish down and re doing the bolts tight in order to stop the wind getting under it.

I have Dish 322 receiver. Everything was fine; a week or so ago satellite 119 reception was spotty, now we can't get 119 at all. We get 110 but only about 34%. Sometimes the receiver will power itself off...

It looks like you have lost the signal for the 119 satellite from your dish. Are you getting an error message, either 002 or 015, saying the satellite signal has been lost or acquiring satellite signal? First, check the cables on the back of the receiver to make sure they are secure. You can also run a check switch test to see if there is a problem between your dish and receiver.

Press the Menu button on your remote. This will bring up the Main Menu on your TV screen. Input the numbers: 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 1 (Point Dish). On the right side of the Point Dish screen are 3 buttons. Select the Check Switch button. Within the 2 large boxes are satellite numbers and green or red boxes. Make a note of the satellite numbers (should be 119, 110), the trans, the device, and switch. Super dish and alternate should not be checked. Select the Test button on the bottom of the screen. If a box pops up with a warning about TV 2, select Yes. It will now run the check switch test. Let it complete the test. After completion, the screen will automatically go back to the Installation Summary screen. You may get a message stating that the Check Switch test has found fewer satellites than previously detected. If you get this message cancel out of each screen (do not save the results) till you are back to the TV screen and it is acquiring Satellite signal.

If you don't get that error message, see if the information on the Installation Summary has changed. Then select Done on the next 2 screens and cancel out of the others till you get the message, Acquiring Satellite Signal. After it finishes acquiring satellite signal and downloads the program guide, see if you are getting a picture - try different channels. If you still have problems, please email me at, ray.calo@dishnetwork.com. If you are still experiencing problems, we will need to send a technician to fix the problem.

Hi,

I really need to know the model number of your Insignia TV and which connections you are using between the Dish box and the TV to give you the correct answer. If you are connecting both cable and satellite, I believe it should be set-up as follows:

1. Connect cable feed to TV
2. Run auto channel scan on "cable" setting
3. Connect Dish box to TV and then try changing the "input" selection.

With the Dish box switched on to a channel number you know, try pressing the "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button on your Insignia TV remote repeatedly until you find the satellite feed. Once you have done so, you should be able to change satellite channels using the Dish remote.

If you need further assistance, please post back with the model number of your TV and details of the connections you are using on the back of the TV.

Regards,
BElectric

Trying to find out what my tvs settings should be on to hook up m


Have you tried channel 3 or the video input channels.
The Tv only needs the one channel that the signal from the box is sent on.
All the viewing channels will be changed through the satellite box.
