Dish 3900 w/SW21 problem
Posted 16 February 2003 - 01:34 AM
I retested the switch throught the 508 and 119/Odd shows up just fine.
I went back to the Point Dish/Signal page and set the Satellite to 119 West, the started playing with different transponders. I noticed that some are working. After checking a few, I found that transponders 2,4, 5, 6, 7 are working fine, but 1, 3 and 9 say "Not Locked."
I'll try removing the switch tomorrow. Could it be poor cable? Is the 508 better with lower grade cable? (I had some cheap stuff laying around when I installed the 508 and it worked, so I never worried about it until now.)
Any hints before I take more drastic measures would be much appreciated.
