    SOURCE: receiver lost signal, cannot aquair

    It sounds like the dish may be mis-pointed since it's not recognizing all the satellites. The next step for this would be to send a technician out to get everything fixed.

    If you would like any assistance setting up a technician, just send me an email at thomas.faust@dish.com and I would be happy to help.

    OVHD when there is rain OVHD does not work


    Your television signal becomes weak in the rain because it is satellite based. Even if you don't have a satellite dish, the company that supplies you does. You need to contact them direct. Or, if you do have a satellite dish, you need to upgrade to either a larger one, or if you are on analogue, you need to upgrade to digital.

    I live in the suburb of Overport and do not receive a satellite signal when it rain. When the rain stops the signal is back but then sound is lost. This can be for a period as long as 3 days.


    Well the list can be many and varied, cloud and rain act as a screen for satellite signals so make them weaker.

    Location is one issue in relation to the satellite used, this is picking up from a low angled source which means you are on its signal edge rather than one overhead. Next is dish size limiting the signal capture or your dish system has moved slightly with wind or decay.

    If the dish LNB/LNC has a horn or tube input rather than a flat faced cap looking cover, insects can inhabit this tube/horn and reduce things. Next up is water ingress into cable or connectors through damaged sleeving, some aerial cable is made with an air cored centre which can get moisture in, this will dampen any signal including normal TV, also if a poor quality cable is used it will add to a weakened signal.

    The LNB/LNC can also degrade some I have seen with plastic caps crack letting in moisture furring up parts inside.

    Your receiver is just reacting to distortions in the signal as a result of this problem of signal loss or variations, only working correctly when this has returned to normal.

    Hope this helps ..............

    TV picture not clear


    First we need to know a little more details about the kind of TV you have, the kind of service (Cable, Satellite or off Air).
    Comparing showroom to your home is also something we need to know. Was the showroom using Cable or Satellite. Satellite will always have a better picture quality wise.
    If you are using composite input for the signal path between TV and source this would not produce a High Dif picture Composite = Yellow for video, red and white for audio. If you are using Component source that will produce a HD signal cable is RED/BLUE and Green with different audio.
    The best quality is using an HDMI cable, this is all in one cable and the sources is the best. One last thing, if you are using the RF *cable as source it will not give you a quality signal.

    I've a problem. When i switch on the tv. It says no signal. I've thought of turning the satellite but it keeps saying no signal and the signal quality stays at 4%. How to do? Configuration: technosat.


    firstly the satellite dish antenna must be correctly aligned to satellite you want to receive.
    technosat setup" initial setup" select the correct safelite ,once selected u should see signal strength /quality then tune the channels...auto works best, after this you can create your own favorite channel list

    Sony Satellite Dish Antenna Operating Instructions

    Operating a Sony satellite dish is a process that first requires correct dish placement to ensure strong signal reception. Additionally, the satellite receiver must be installed, and only then can you use it to put the dish in operating order via the use of its signal meter screen. Fortunately, you do not need to be a professional to complete these operations properly.

    1. Initial Sony Satellite Mounting
      • Look around for a suitable mounting area for your satellite dish. This mounting area should be free of any debris and also allow for a flat mounting area. It's best to utilize a hand-held level to measure and make sure that your Sony satellite dish lies flush with the mounting surface beneath it. Also, look to the skies above before settling on a mounting area, as obstructions such as trees, power lines and tall buildings can block signal reception for your Sony satellite dish. Once a spot is chosen, go ahead and crudely aim your Sony satellite dish to the southern sector of the sky above. This will save you some time later when you return for further adjustments

    Ive got a freesat dish and reciever but we get 90% signal but no quality any suggestions


    Your on the wrong satellite, If your on any satellite youll get a high Signal but you wont get a high quality until your on the specific satellite. Astra 2A is for freesat. If you can bring that up on the menu then just keep moving the dish until the quality goes above 50% and that will suffice for a decent picture.

    I have a pincushion problem on the screen , what causes this and how can it be fix?


    Not sure what a pincushion problem is? If you mean it pixalates and/or seizes up, runs, you may need to re-peak the dish signal by repointing it, reinstall the dish, if trees or something else is partly blocking signal to the dish. Some transponders on the satellites are much weaker than others. Check signal on the transponder you have the most problems, go to install satellite to check signal. Even rain and snow on the dish or in the air can degrade the picture. Another problem can be caused by used old cable tv wire to bring signal in for the dish. Newer receivers require much more bandwidth that requires good quality RG6 cable coax wire. Even roosting birds can cause problems.. Make sure there is no snow on the dish.

    With the bell dish we have the oblong dish can get 100% signal for satelite 91 and 100% on satelite 82 but not both at the same time?


    Guest 10

    With multiple satellite dishes, you will get a lower signal strength on mulitple satellites as opposed to individual satellites. The reason being when pointed at one satellite, you are pointed directly at that satellite. With multiple satellites, you are pointed in the general direction of the multiple satellites so the signal will not be as strong compared to pointing directly at the individual satellite. Normally, a signal strength 50 or above is sufficient. I hope this helps.

    Multiple video inputs


    Unfortunately, you cannot use the connectors at the same time. The S-Video connector overrides the standard video connector. This is why they share common audio left/right inputs. If you could use them separately, they would each have their own set of audio inputs. (S-Video does not carry audio signals on the cable.) I'm assuming that you are connecting your Satellite as an input to your VCR, and then your VCR to the TV via a video connection. The VCR passes the satellite signal through unless you are watching a tape, then it overrides the dish signal. You have a few choices here: 1. You can connect the coaxial (RF) output from the VCR to the TV, and watch the satellite and VCR on channel 3 (or 4). You can then connect the DVD via S-Video, and watch it on "video". This is the simplest solution, and provides the best picture quality for the DVD (with this TV), but lower quality for the dish and VCR. 2. You can connect the DVD player via RF (if it supports that), watch the DVD on channel 3, and connect the VCR via video. This will make the DVD picture quality terrible. 3. You can replace the VCR with a combo DVD/VCR unit. You can then connect the S-Video out from the combo unit to the TV. This is a more expensive solution. 4. You can replace the TV with a model that includes more inputs. This is the most expensive solution, but will allow you to watch your DVD over component cables (very high quality) and VCR and dish over S-Video. Ironically, the obvious choice, connecting the DVD as an input to the VCR (as a pass-through) simply WON'T WORK. The signal put out by the DVD player is "copy protected" (using a system called MacroVision) which the VCR will refuse to play, even as a pass-though. Best of luck with this. Given that you are trying to make this all work without replacing equipment, I recommend option #1, until you decide to break down and buy a shiny new HDTV. They are coming down in price every week, but only you can decide when the time is right.
