Steve - you need to be very specific about what is hooked up to what. A "splitter" that would work fine for OTA / RF distribution will not work on the LNB cable.


A lot of the connections are Greek to me. There have been three DISH technicians to my house in the past month or so and they all say the connections are normal and good.

OK, they did the antenna relocation trick, but also left one at the receiver too. Haven't seen it done like that before, but the connections look fine.

Also, just FYI - the blue one is a diplexer, the silver one is a separator, and the two red ones are actual splitters. I know they all look the same, but all 3 have very different functions.

This is the first of any mention of an OTA antenna being in the mix. Disconnect it and see what happens.
I believe you said it has changed from being on one tuner, to being on both now, but in short bursts. There is some connection that is either not connected properly causing a ground problem, and could be the antenna.

And you still did not say if you followed what I said to do, switch the inputs and see what happens, also, with the new information, only put one input on at a time and see how that affects it.

All your suggestions were tried when the new receiver and separator was put in.
