I'm having some problems with my Dish 500..Sgl. LNB (for Sat.129), and 1000.2 antenna signals. For the past week or so my Dish 500 with the single LNB for viewing Sat. 129 is seeing some signal loss. So. I moved my Sat. 129 back on the Dish 1000.2 antenna. That didn't help any on the signal count...low 30's at best. To make some change, I moved the Dish 500 with Sgl. LNB to another location on the home. I changed to a new coax cable, and connect it (direct" to the "in" coax going into the home to my VIP211k. My 129 signal strength went up to high 60's to mid 70's... which is better than before. No 110 and 119 sat connected here...Just the Sat 129 to the VIP211K. Seeing this was good, I connected the single LNB 129 coax to the "In" port on the 1000.2 LNBF. Very poor signal... if any. In fact the receiver 211K shows "green" on sat's 110.119, and "orange" for the Sat. 129. With that I could get only a few HD channels....most wouldn't show in the guide. Meaning my 129 wasn't working with the 1000.2 LNB's. So, here's what is in placed now. I have removed the Dish 500 Sgl. LNB from the 1000.2 "in" port, and removed the foil/cover from the left (129) LNB and connected these two coax's back to the two VIP211K receivers. I get all the satellites, but 129 is still low in signal count....upper 30's at best. I'll settle for this at this time.
However, I have another plan... use a Dish DPP Pro Plus...ports for 110, 119, and the outer right port for my Dish 500 single LNB. QUESTION: Will the Dish DPP Pro Plus LNB adapt to the 1000.2 arm? Using the 1000.2 as my antenna. Due to the fact my Dish 500 with the single LNB for 129 gets upper 60's and mid 70's, and using the Dish 500 dual DPP Pro Plus, with the single 129 LNB connected to the "In" third post on the DPP Pro Plus, there's a chance I may get a better satellite setup.
Anyone, have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
