H21 signal, no HD question
Posted 30 January 2011 - 05:07 PM
I see two different sets of satellites in the signal meters found in the following locations:
Menu-Satellite-View Signal: Only Shows 101,110,119, SWM
Menu-Satellite-Repeat Sat Setup-Signal Strength: Shows: 101, 99c, 99s, 103s, 103ca, 103cb, SWM.
In setup it does properly show the correct dish slimline3 swm.
Any ideas? It seems it is receiving it but not passing it on to the rest of the box??

A SWM system has one cable coming from the dish, a "legacy" Slimline dish will have 4 cables. A SWM-5 and Slimline5 "legacy" LNB will have 3 feedhorns or "eyeballs". a SWM-3 and Slimline3 LNB will have only 1.
In a SWM system the H21 needs no B-Band converter. In a "legacy" system the H21 will need a B-band converter to see the Ka satellites and most HD programming. Your H23 has a "wide-band" tuner and does not need a B-band converter in either setup.
Once the proper setup is achieved, tune to channel 206. Does the receiver tune to ESPNHD or ESPN. If it tunes to channel 206 ESPN, and not ESPNHD. Enter the "Guide HD channels" under Menu/Setup/System Setup/Display/Preferences and select "Hide SD Duplicates".
