This is my first post so please excuse any ignorance I may show or say Also thank you ahead of time for any help you can provide.
So I ordered Dish Networks new Dish Hopper system with International channels and 1 Joey. When the installer came he hooked up the Hopper and Joey units fine and everything is working fine. Then I called back a couple weks ago to order a 3rd VIP211 receiver to take with us to a cabin we recently purchased that also had a dish network plus dish but also attached to it is a DP34 switch and a different style lnb set. It looks like the LNB pointing to International is on there 118. The dish that the installer put up at my home says Dish Network Plus and it when I received the VIP211 receiver I ran another cable from the LNB and it works fine when I tested it on a tv here.
Here is a picture of the setup at my home please notice how the installer interconnect the LNB's he has a jump coaxial cable that connects between 2 different LNB's:http://im1.shutterfly.com/media/47a2cf29b3127ccef1c568aafe7d00000030O00AbMWzZw2ZM2QPbz4G/cC/f%3D0/ps%3D50/r%3D0/rx%3D550/ry%3D400/
A couple weeks ago I was at the cabin getting everything cleaned up and decided to take the VIP211k there. When I connect it I selected Factory Defaults then unplugged for a minute then when it came back on it began the acquiring satellites and I let it do it's thing for 5 min. then it goes to Downloading program guide. Then it goes back to Acquiring satellites and then again to program guide and it continously does this and I left it for about 1 hr and still stuck on that. So I clicked menu and when to dish pointing option and selected "Switch Check" and the 3 satelittes come back OK. So I save and when I select Guide it shows the channel listings with show names but when I select any channel especially the ones that I know work it tells me double check signal and something about the channel cannot be displayed which I can tell is coming from the receiver.
Below is the satellite with LNB's and the DP34 switch. Please notice that the large LNB has 2 coaxial connectors on it rather than the 4 connectors my lnb has at home.
So what to do? How do I get the the VIP211 receiver to work at my cabin ? I've tried several configs and nothing.
