I was looking out at my new Dish installation (which was installed by Dish), and I am pretty confused. I have 2 dual tuners in my house (a VIP 722 HD DVR and a 322 SD tuner). 4 TVs are being run in my house.
My antenna is reported by the units to be a 1K.2 Antenna (with 4 ports and 2 seperators on each unit).
I looked at the LNBF block on the antenna, and there are only two cables coming from the block. There are 4 connectors, and 2 are unused. However, my receivers say they are getting signals from the 110, 119, and 129 satellites.
I would have expected three cables going from the LNBF block (one each for Sat 110, 119, and 129.1) to a switch of some sort, but I don't see a switch of any kind. I see two separators that are three connector devices (2 Satellite connections and 1 TV connection) - and I think I know what those are now.
I downloaded a Dish 1000.2 Antenna Installation manual, and it shows that the 4 connectors on the LNBF block are "110", "119", "129", and "LNB In" - Pretty much what I would expect.
My questions are:
1) Is there some sort of hidden switch in my setup that I don't know about? (If so, where is it?)
2) Are the 4 connectors on the LNBF block on the antenna all combined already, so that each connection has all three satellite signals?
Things have changed since I last installed my old antenna years ago. I may want to add an additional receiver to my setup some day, and I'm trying to figure this thing out.
Thank you for your help!
