Weird signal problem
Posted 17 January 2011 - 11:21 AM
If you have the access and the dish is easily accessable, I would suggest purchasing a replacement LNB and installing yourself without the services of Directv. I would be greatly surprised if they would send an LNB directly, they would require a service call.
Replacing the LNB is relatively easy (remove two screws and it will slide out). Realignment should not be necessary with normal care in removing the existing LNB assembly. I have replaced several LNBs and realignment has never been required.
Given your present receiver complement, I would remove the 6x8 switch from the mix (use barrel connectors instead).

Glad it all worked out for you. And you said you didn't want to be outside in the 20 degrees doing connectors, so you went out in the sub zero? :-p
Hehehehehe....well today it was close to 30 plus no wind
