I just switched from D* to E*. Local retailer came and installed Dish 500, a 625 and a 322 last Thursday. I wanted to use the 625 on one TV to replace my D*Tivo. He did that. And for the other TV I asked for a 311, but the guy brought a 322 because he didn't have any 311s. So he hooked the 322 up to one TV.

The picture is fine, but the audio on both receivers is out of sync. I have already done the reset on both and it didn't fix the problem. So I'm assuming there is a problem with the wiring.

Install info: The guy used the same cable that was there from my D* connection. But he told me he had to replace the switch. He also mounted the dish about 6 feet from where my D* dish was because of a tree. One thing that puzzles me is I thought he would just unhook the two input cables from my D*Tivo and plug them right into the 625. But he only used one of the cables and ran it into a splitter (separator) and then into the 2 inputs on the 625. The other cable is now not connected to anything. I just had one line in the other room so I know he had to use a splitter for the 322.

I have the 625 routed through my Onkyo receiver but the 322 is connected straight to the TV. But the audio is out of sync on both receivers. Also, it's funny because it's worse on some channels than others.

I checked my signal strength and found the following. I have no signal on transponders 1, 3, or 9 on sat 119. I have no signal on transponders 4, 23, 25, or 27 and low readings (less than 70) on trans. 3, 10, and 26 on sat. 110. Could this cause an audio problem? Do I need the dish realligned?

Transponders you get no signal on might be spot beams pointed elsewhere.

Is the audio off on ALL channels. I have notice sync problems on my 301 but it was a problem at the source, not the receiver.

Weak signal would not cause audio sync problems, signals are digital, you would experience blocking and/or dropouts.

If you are getting less than 70% I would say that you need the dish realligned, call in for a service call. and if you still want the 311 receiver ask them to bring it out other wise you would be charged an access fee if it is not plugged into a phone line.

If you are going to add a 4th tv later, keep the 322 plug it into a phone line and later run the coax to the 4th tv yourself that way you only pay for the 1 add'l outlet fee. for 4 tv's.

hope this helps
