Change the line from the 322 to another receiver. Chances are the power inserter for the dpp44 is hooked to a line to the 322, once there is no power to that receiver the power to the switch is cut.
There are 4 outputs from the DPP44psnarula said:both of the replies seem to be saying the same thing but i'm sorry -- i don't understand. please elaborate...
the dpp44 switch is plugged into the power strip in the living room -- the same power strip that has the dvd player, the tv, the 625 receiver, the PS2, etc.
Sounds like the power inserter may be plugged into the wrong port (or on the wrong end) on the DPP44 and the 322 was somehow powering the DPP44 instead. Try swapping the output cables at the DPP44 (making sure that the 625/power inserter cable is on port 1 and the baby's room cable is on port 2).psnarula said:the dpp44 switch is plugged into the power strip in the living room -- the same power strip that has the dvd player, the tv, the 625 receiver, the PS2, etc.
okay this is making more sense now (the multiple replies definitely help) and i think i know what i need to do but let me give the detailed version of my setup that you asked for.harsh said:Your cabling situation is getting more complex by the message.
What is the order of appearance of devices from the dish(es) to the 625 (list all goodies including diplexers, the switch, the separators and the power inserter? Be sure to note port numbers/designations on all of the devices.
yesIs your separator plugged SAT1 to SAT1 and SAT2 to SAT2?
i have no idea what you are asking or how to answer this questionAre you sure that both of your diplexers are passing DC?
i have no idea. how do i tell? under what circumstances would i need the dpp44 switch? perhaps the detailed information about my setup can help you answer that question.Do you still need the DPP44 (I'm guessing you don't)?
yes, i see that now. i used the correct terms in my reply above.Know that the device that you called a diplexer on the 322 is actually a separator. A diplexer and a separator are two entirely different devices.
I think you got it. Swapping #1 & # 3 should do it. Make the swap at the DPP44 so that the power inserter( now on #3 ) will be on #1.output number 3 from the dpp44 runs straight to the dpp44 power inserter and then the output from the dpp44 power inserter runs straight to input 1 on the 625.
i think to fix my problem i just need to go to the dpp44 switch and swap output 1 and output 3.
i'll do it when i get home from work this afternoon...fchall said:I think you got it. Swapping #1 & # 3 should do it. Make the swap at the DPP44 so that the power inserter( now on #3 ) will be on #1.
Be sure that output #1 from the DPP44 goes to/thru the power inserter and then to the 625.
Let us know how it works.
Good on you. Happy TVpsnarula said:swapping #1 and #3 did the trick. i unplugged the 322 and the 625 still works.
thanks for all the help.
