Which LNB is for Sat 119 ?
Posted 21 September 2012 - 06:40 PM
When looking at the Dish Network instruction sheet that came with my dish, there are two different diagrams of the LNB setup on the 1000.4 WA dish. One shows the center LNB to be 110, and another shows the center LNB to be 119. WHICH IS CORRECT ?
Also, on the Dish Summary Screen, in what order left to right, should the Satellite Input show after I run Check Switch? Should it be Port 1-119, Port 2-110, and Port 3-129 or WHAT?

I replaced the coax with new GE RG6 which did not help. Then I hooked up the receiver to a different WA dish and it works just fine on the other dish, so that eliminates it being a receiver issue.
SO, what can be the problem ? Can it be in the feed horn / switch, or does the fact that odd and even both work on the other sats eliminate that as a possible problem ? Can it possibly be mis aimed ? Since I get a strong signal on all the sats and transponders except 119 even, I am doubting that.
This is a receiver and dish I own, and I would prefer to fix the issue myself rather than have a tech charge to come out. It's getting to be a personal challenge now.
Can anyone help ?

If you using SAME coax/port for two different boxes and got different result, then I would start measures of 13/18 VDC at the failing receiver.
No, perhaps I didn't make it clear. I used the SAME receiver but connected to different dishes, one and then the other.
The receiver performs properly when hooked to one of the two dishes, but does not receive the even transponders on 119 when connected to the other dish. These two dishes are mounted on different ends of my roof. The problem one now has a new coax to no avail. Both dishes have unobstructed view of all the sats, and both indicate approx same signal strength.
Does this sound like a feed horn / switch issue or something else. I understand the different voltages control which polarity is used, but need to know where the problem lies.

or call dish order DHPP and complain in a few days after that, perhaps it will less costly solution for you
oh, don't stop the DHPP early or you'd pay $25 termination fee !
