Strange problem with old receiver
Posted 25 January 2006 - 02:07 PM
I have a old Sony receiver that dates to the late '90s. It's never given me any trouble. I had split the aat-out line (coax) and was running it to two different TVs (actually to one TV and to my Media Center PC).
The TV broke, so for a while it was just hooked to the MCPC. I got the TV repaired, hooked everything back up and the TV worked fine. A few hours later, I went to check the PC, and there was no signal. Went back and checked the TV, same thing ... just snow.
I removed the split and wired it directly to the TV. Nothing. I then hooked it up with RCA cables to the TV, and everything worked fine, but the coax to my PC still produces no signal.
Is it possible the Satellite Out coax jack "shorted out" or something? Anyone heard of anything like this before? Any suggestions?
I have a DTV installer coming Friday to upgrade me to the triple LNB dish and an HR10-250 for my new HDTV. Will they replace my old SD receiver for me?
