mystifying reception problem
Posted 23 February 2009 - 02:15 PM
I've had my local installer out 3 times...the first time he replaced my HDDVR, because of a loose coax connection on the back. The second time he re-terminated the coax inside the house in the plate in the wall, and the last time re-terminated the coax outside the house. None of these attempts helped.
I can get these channels on my other 2 sets without problem.
Anyone got any ideas?

Any idea how long the cable runs are to that location?
What are your signal readings showing at that location when compared to other locations that are working?

Did he replace the barrel in the wallplate with blue instead of white.

This is probably not it but you could also check the electrical outlet that the receiver is plugged into using a three outlet tester. The tester checks to see if the outlet is wired properly. Whe electrical outlets are not wired correctly, they can play all sorts of havoc with DTV receivers.

I have not swapped receivers, but since it was replaced I feel confident that it's confined to this one television. I would guess the cable run is less than 50'.
I will get the signal strength and post it.
Not sure about the barrel in the wall plate, and I'm reasonably sure he has not replaced the LNB.
