Lost signal on one receiver
Posted 13 June 2004 - 02:14 PM
Now one cable doesn't receive a signal. One does. I switched cables to be sure both receivers worked ok. Both do.
What can go out on the Dish setup?? Do LNB's burn out? Can you test them?
Any ideas what to try? Thanks

The good news is that the problem is immediately apparent, so it should be easy to troubleshoot. Start switching out pieces and work your way back to the cause of the problem.

You say you switched cables. At which end? If receivers are in same room and you swapped it there, all you did was rule out the box, which is a good thing. If you swapped the cables out close to the dish (typically at a grounding block or switch), then you've proven the indoor feed is OK, too. If that's the case, now we're back to needing to know your switch/LNBF configuration - Legacy vs. DishPro, Dual, Twin, Quad, plus switch type(s) if any.

I have to agree with Gary again
