    The biggest problem when it comes to the 6000 could be that you are using the DP Adapter with the DP34/DP21. It should come up in the check switch screen as an SW21-4sat. It's probably a software issue. The DP+44 may help, but I would ask around and see if anyone else is having the same problem. Maybe start a new thread. What sat is the 3rd one you are using on the DP34? If it is the 148, that may also be a problem, since they had some issues with using both sats. Also, have you tried rebooting the switches? Unhook all the receivers from the switch and let it power off for a few minutes. Start with the 6000 after rebooting it and then run the check switch. The more complicated that they have made this stuff, the more problems they have had. Good Luck.

    I am having a hard time finding a signal from 61.5. Here's what equipment I have installed:

    18" dish w/d-arm(installed and plumed)
    dp lnb(removed from a superdish)
    dp21 between dp34 and receiver

    Check switch shows: comm

    Does it matter which connection i use on the lnb?

    It has been quite awhile since I used an 18" dish, does the elevation mark align with the left or right side of the washer?

    Any help appreciated.

    When trying to align your dish, always run it directly into a receiver. Also, when trying to troubleshoot after verifying signal, always try checking stuff 1 thing at a time, and also try rebooting your switches by removing all power and starting with 1 receiver at a time by doing checkswitches.

    I have a couple old 18" directv dishes, can I use the I bracket to fit a dishpro lnb onto a rectangle armed rca directv dish?

    No - not without cutting the arm to the proper length so that the "eye" remains at the focal point.

    It's probably easier to just cut open the end of the D* arm into something you can mangle into holding the E* LNB.
