    I just moved and the house I'm renting now already has a dish on the roof. The one at our old house only had one cable connection on the LNB and used the SWM. The house we moved to seems to have a different setup. There are four lines coming from the LNB into a Zinwell WB68 and then various lines to different rooms in the house. My SD receiver picked up a signal and gets all my subscribed channels without any error -- signal strengths in the mid 90's on almost every transponder. When I connect my HR22-100 to the same line the SD receiver was connected to I get no signal whatsoever. I grabbed a MSPLIT4R1-03 that was connected to the old dish and the one wire LNB from the old dish, but I have NO idea how to make this HD receiver work and I don't want to fry anything -- oh, I also have a power inserter from the old house, not yet connected to anything at the new house.

    Help?

    So, if I understand you, 2 lines from the Zinwell WB68 to the HR22-100 each with a b-band blocker and I'm good? Is there anyway to get those b-band blockers locally so my wife doesn't kill me before they show up? lol

    To the gentleman that sent me a PM, my post count isn't yet high enough for me to respond, but if I can't come up with a couple by the end of the day locally, I'll take you up on your offer. You can e-mail jesse.c.pahman@att.net

    Now might be a good time to delete your post with your email address.

    I appreciate the suggestion, but it's an e-mail address, I've got so many I've forgotten about them. If anyone feels the need to send me an e-mail, it's their time lost, not mine.

    Los...
    Just to be sure;

    Also make certain its not actually a 18" x 20" Phase III SD dish you have on the roof there. As it also has 4 lines from it to a WB68 (if necessary) in a standard install;

    I will take your inactivity in the past week as a no for the offer of 3 free B band converters. They will go back on my, if somebody needs them shelf.
