I am using a Slingline dish and a SWM-8 switch. Last nights power outage in Virginal left me with no
Directv.....bummer. I have 5 HD receivers and 1 SD receiver connected to the SWM-8. All say
"searching for satellite". The high wind and falling branches could have moved the dish, but I want to
eliminate the SWM-8 first, as I have had problems with it in the past.
Can i disconnect one cable from the dish at the switch, and connect it direcrly to a HD reciver to see if the dish alimgment is ok? If so, I think I must insert a BBC module in the line to a HD receiver. And, no BBC module should be required for the SD receive. Is this correct?
Or is there an easier way to see if the SWM-8 is faulty.
Any comments and suggestions woul;d be apppreciated.
