First, a warning: if you are a seasoned, knowledgeable DBS person, this is probably going to be one of those posts that enrage you because there is a 99% chance I have no idea what I am talking about.
OK, if you are still reading...
I am in a condo where the association provides basic D* service with the ability to add on. I have added on, and in fact I have multiple sports subs and my bill lately has been running about $185. There are a few dishes per building in a SWM configuration. I know this because I have been here for 6 months and my service has gone completely out for days at a time at least 3 times because the SWM power inserter needed to be reset.
Unfortunately, the power inserter is in a location inaccessible to me (certainly it is not in my unit) and so I cannot do anything about the outage until the HOA system operator comes out and resets the thing, wherever it is. Currently I am working on 3 days without service, have made multiple calls to the system operator, and am looking at the very real possibility of missing 1/17 of my NFL:ST sub this weekend.
So here is my question. I have a SWM power inserter in a box from setup I had before I moved here. If I hook it up, will any of the following possibly occur:
1. Resolution of my 775 error.
2. Destruction of receivers, dishes, LNB, etc.
I wouldn't even be considering this except that dammit, football. Any help you can provide would be very much appreciated.
