Question about Televison & Video
Hi, well you would think that setting up a sat system would be easy huh? Well as you have found out, it's NOT...
First you MUST ensure you have a Good antenna system 98% of ALL problems are to do with signal strength, or the lack of it...
The LNB, the COAX, and F connectors ALL must be in 100% A OK, condition I simply cannot stress this enough.
Very small adjustments can mean great increases in signal strength. What you need to do, is First get the antenna dish pointing exactly, not "near enough" as that will not work, it MUST be the exact Angle and Azimuth for the Sat you are "Looking at" it MUST be DEGREE accurate. To do this i suggest you obtain a little Sat strength meter, here, http://cgi.ebay.com/Satellite-Finder-Signal-Meter-SAT-DISH-LNB-DIRECTV-/280587328827?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item41544edd3b#ht_4314wt_905 Use this to get your dish lined up correctly, also look up your settings for "Birds" angle and azimuth, this is SO important...
Now after you get a better signal, i think you will find it will all work. again make sure ALL connections are remade new afresh, Clean all contacts before using, make sure that your "F" Connectors are all NEW Tight and Connected well. Check the LNB, if possible test on a working system? Else just empirically test it, If possible use NEW low loss Coax, even a little water inside the coax will attenuate a weak signal.. Make sure you have the right LNB too, this is critical, as is the setting up too.
