Aha, here is your problem. All 4 lines from the dish need to go to a 4x8 switch which then would distribute the signals to all the receivers.magellanmtb said:wanted to connected up my h20 as a backup and OTA tuner with HR20. the H20 goes into the HDMI tv feed and the HR20 goes into the component inputs. HR20 Transponder numbers (satelitte 101) on tuner 1 are 95-100 but on tuner 2 the even numbers are 95+ and ALL the even numbers are 0. Is this the way it should be or should both tuner display the same transponder numbers? H20 transponders numbers are all populated.
I have four lines coming down from the 3lnb dish (NY mpeg2 locals). 2 go into a multi switch for my directivo units and basic directv units (old rca's) all working. the other 2 go into a 3x4 switch with 2 going to the HR20 and one going to H20 and the OTA is connected to the H20. Thanks.
An individual tuner can be asking for signals from 1 of 4 sets of transponders:
Sat. 101, odd transponders
110 and 119, odd
or 110 and 119, even.
The switch forces each line from the dish to a known set, so it needs all four to pass on to the tuners.
Call D* and have them upgrade you to the new 5lnb dish with a new 6x8 switch for the 5lnb for free (ok, you might have to pay shipping). Hopefully you'll get a good CSR who will do that without any hassle.
