I'm converting to swim, bought swim 5 lnb, have rg6 cables installed, but keep getting 771 on setup


Tried swappng lnb's (have 3 of them), swapped pi's, used different receivers, finally took TV / receiver to basement, ran lnb cable to pi then pi to receiver ( no splitters ), still get 771, pi is about 60 feet from lnb, any ideas appreciated.

Form dish to PI "power to SWM" port. signal to IRD port to receiver. is that how yours is connected? WHat receiver are you using? model number please. also was your dish aligned before? or how are you aligning your dish?

Have you confirmed that your receiver(s) has/have configured themselves for SWiM?


If the planets are in alignment, they'll auto-configure (assuming they're SWiM capable).


From there, you're just not pointing the dish in the right direction.

Go through sat install again and set it to swim. You also want to make sure you have unplugged all receivers and the swim pi then plug in the swim pi. Then after a couple minutes plug in the receivers. If you never unplugged the receivers you'll have issues as well.

Perhaps the dish moved when you swapped the LNBs?   You might simply need to realign the dish.
