Question about RCA DISH Network(r) 311 Satellite System

Open Question

Finding 110 (echo star 7) signal for dishnetwork.

I recently installed my dish on a viewsat extreme free to air.However I cannot get the 110 satelite.
I had my dish hooked up at a different location and all the cordinates was perfect,I didn't change any of them,it was installed level.I used a satelite finder,the receiver was set on a 119 channel,should I set the tv on a 110 channel to find the signal?.What's the purpose of using a switch?I think this looks like a splitter,should I connect both LNB and send one cable to my receiver.
Any advise out ther contact me @ lewissvg@hotmail.com

Thanks,

Jojn

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: satellite dish receiver error LNB Drift detected

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

I have viewsat lite and i want to get it updated and new files to get access to dish on demand

DISH on Demand (also known as Video on Demand) is available to DISH Network customers with certain receiver models. Movies are downloaded automatically to the hard drive of the receiver, giving you the choice of which movies you would like to watch. I have provided a link to our Website, www.dishnetwork.com, with the requirements and movies available. I hope this helps.

How do you tune in tv channels when you only have a signal input from a satelite dish and no sky decoder. TV is a sharp lc-32l400x with built in freeview. Can we plug dish straight into TV aerial port...


You require a satelite decoder/receiver for your dish and an aerial for your TV.
The choice is yours. Plug a satelite receiver, for freesat, into the A/V input on the TV or have an aerial installed for freeview.

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.

Dish Network - Dish 500 Satellite 110 is not being recognized


You will need a DP or Legacy twin or quad, or DPP twin without using an external switch. If you use Legacy Duals, or DP Duals you will need a switch. USUALLY a SW21 is used to combine the signals but you may have a different one in use if at all.

The primary thing to remember when using a switch is that you must use the same type of LNB as switch e.g. Legacy switches with Legacy LNB's and Dish Pro switches with Dish Pro LNB's.

Check your LNB type. Legacy LNB's have only a Dish Network Logo on them, Dish Pro has DP on them and DPP have DP PLUS on them.

One of three things could be the cause:

1. Line of site. Must be clear of all obstructions to ensure adequate signal.

2. You have a faulty switch, or conflicting LNB and switch, or no switch at all.

3 you may have a bad port on the LNB.

As a fail safe check that your mount is level and plumb. You also may have the dish pointed directly at 119. Check the Skew and elevation settings as well. If LOS IS THE ISSUE YOU MAY NEED TO RELOCATE THE DISH OR REMOVE THE OBSTRUCTION.

In some extreme cases microwave towers and High Voltage lines also pose a problem but doubt this is the case for you.
