Called DTV 8/16/07 for dish alignment after severe storm with winds gusting to 70 mph. Signal levels were lower than usual on 101, but in the 40s and 50s on the other Sats. The 1st available date for the service was 8/20/07 Before the service tech came out things started going downhill. Lost all odd transponders on 101 on all receivers (I have (3) D12's and (1) H20), and lost HD on the H20. I thought maybe I had a bad LNB, cable, or a bad switch (WB68) The service tech comes out and re-aligns the dish, and then checks the cables going into the switch. He says (1) of them are bad. He also says that I do not need the WB68 since I have only (4) drops. So he disconnects the switch and installs a SAM3402 (3x4). He comes back upstairs and resets the H20 and everything comes up (HD also) with all my signals in the 90s. I check the other TVs and they are working perfect. After he left I go downstairs and see that he did not fix the bad cable coming from the dish. It is disconnected and coiled up. On the 3x4 switch he connected (2) cables (13v & 18v) from the dish to the input side, and my (3) D12s on the output side. The 3rd cable from the dish is directly connected to the cable that feeds the H20. My question is what am I loosing since everthing seems to work by not having that bad cable hooked up?
