PLEASE HELP-- HR20 with Destacker
Posted 18 July 2007 - 06:49 PM
The light on my SCD-4P52W is green. I can't figure out what's wrong. Did ATT tell me the wrong destacker model? Is it a bad destacker? (which is what I originally thought since the Sonora worked). Some people are now saying I need a different model but nobody is sure.

I only get satellite 101 however as they told me to configure it as a round dish.
I believe the SCD 4p52w destacker will give you those extra transponders which I guess are more HD channels.
ATT told me that I'll get HBO, Showtime Discovery HD etc as well as locals in HD.
I am not sure why the SCD is supposed to get more transponders or more satellites but I am hoping it does. And I would love to know why it's showing no even transponders.

I would think any valid destacker would give you comparable results. However you need to know that any destacker is NOT going to give you the new mpeg4 feeds that the HR20 is capable of receiving. The most you will get are the mpeg2 HD feeds.
Turns out the advantage of the SCD destacker is that it shows a good chunk of the HD channels. A sonora destcker won't show any.
My issue now though is why it is only showing odd transponders. Seems like that would be a destacker problem but before I return it I'd like to be sure its not something else.
