I had that happen when, in the set-up menu, 6x8 switch had been selected rather than 4x4. If a receiver is set for 6x8, it will send out DiSEqC switching commands that confuse a 3-LNB dish, whereas if it is set for 4x4, it uses the voltage and tone controls that your dish antenna needs.ncriley said:I have a 3LNB dish on a tripod that I use for tailgating. I have never had a problem before but this weekend I could only get constant signal strength on every other transponder for satellite at 101. When just looking at the signal meter on the first transponder it would show 80-90% for 5 seconds and then go away without me adjusting anything.
With that problem, the receiver would never finish the setup and populate the guide, so I couldn't get any channels.
Is it possible I am doing something wrong or is the LNB bad?
I have been told that with some receivers, if you slecct 3 LNB rather than 5 LNB in the set-up menu, there will not even be a chouce between 4x4 and 6x8 switch, but YMMV.
