Is there a way to check the switch to see if it is bad, I lose 2 signals after a certain time of watching TV, the only way to get it back to normal is to unplug then go through the setup wizard but now thats even having trouble getting all three. I have a tripod, 100.2 dish in Ca. vip 211k I have tried to get answers on this site but it just seems to be a strange problem. I get 70 on 110 - 58 on 119 - 34 on 129, no site obstructions what ever lnb I'm watching the other 2 will not come in after some time of watching TV........ Steve.
This is an RV setup tripod to outside connection. So is there a switch inside the 211k ? This is what I did lately, Disconnected coax ran check switch 0 LNB then connected coax check switch then have 110-119-129 all is good, now will see how long this lasts
it almost sounds like a mis-alignment, w/ the low numbers for 119 an 129. You might need to tweak the skew a bit to get stronger signal. In the 'details' section of 'checkswitch', theres no mention of LNB Drift is there?
I do the tinfoil trick cover outside LNB's lock on to 119 right now I'm getting signal of 54%- 110 64% - 129 42% I have tried tweaking the dish but does not seem to get any stronger of a signal. I have 2 sets of LNB heads and they both do the same thing. Should I try and start over try setting up on 110 LNB It just seem every morning I have to reset everything.
