    Can comeone please tell me how to get my DVR to work with destackers. I have one line coming in my livingroom. The line comes into a 2-way splitter 5-2150mhz, (1 in 2 out) the two out are going to D575 dstackers to the input then from each dstacker, sat receiver out put i have each one going to sat 1 and then sat 2, this will not work any idea why. I have a DIRECT TV PLUS DVR, i believe i have a dual LNB, because when i run a cable from my bedroom to the living room it works.

    You have to turn on the destacker on the R15, which is explained how to do here, http://www.dbstalk.com/showpost.php?p=506498&postcount=12

    Also, you don't have a dual LNB. If you had a dual LNB, you wouldn't need to stack the signal, as each line from the dish would just go directly into the back of the DVR.

    When you turn on the internal destackers...... disconnect your external destackers. Go straight from the splitter to the unit

    Is your signal stacked to start with? The dish does not stack, you need a separate piece of equipment to do that.

    I believe you need both lines from the dish going into the stacker. Then from the stacker output you can run a single line and split it to multiple destackers.

    Unless you are in an MDU (a condo, townhouse, apartment, type structure).

    Or you know 100% that you have a stacker (as in, you know you installed it).

    Then you may not have a stacker after all... as the stacking unit is about $150 or so (the destackers are less)
