Not that I've seen yet for the 5-LNB Ka/Ku band dishes.tbohen said:Any stackable options out there yet? My install is
-Dish on the backside of detached garage.
-Amp into 6 porter in Garage to feed two dual tuners in garge.
-Then 4 coax underground to 6 porter in thehouse to feed house recievers.
That link appears to be broken, but I don't think Sonora (or anyone else) has a stacked solution for Ka band. Directv's frequency translation module should work once it becomes available (next year?)tbohen said:Wouldnt this accomplish the same thing as my stacked setup now?
I have 4 RG'6's between buildings.
It seems like it would but I'm afraid I'm missing something obvious.
It sound like the easiest thing would be to add two more coax runs to the house.tbohen said:Ok, I need to revisit this, I'm adding a third receiver to the house so I need more outputs in the house.
Refresher course on my setup.
Detached garage-- 5LNB dish into WB68 -- Four RG6 Runs to the house. I need to keep the switch in the garage to feed the two TV's in there.
Right not I'm fine with two HR20's in the house, but I need to add a third.
In the past I had a stackable switch that allowed me to run another 8 port multiswitch in the house fed via the 4 RG'6s. I see sonora has what I THINK will work but I'm confused.
I need help!
I would suggest researching the SWMs from DirecTV. If all of the receivers inside the house are HR20s, an SWM8 may be just the ticket.tbohen said:I see sonora has what I THINK will work but I'm confused.
There are probably several available which would work. You should get one which works from 250-2150 MHz. Here's one possibility: http://www.solidsignal.com/prod_display.asp?PROD=SVZ4F.tbohen said:bobnielson, can you give me part numbers to do this? thanks
You should have no problems "IF" you match the coax inputs between the two multi-switches [13 v to 13 v, etc.]tbohen said:oh and will WB68's work ok in this scenario? One in the garage, one in the house?
This should give you an idea of what to get: http://www.sonorastore.com/amplifiers.htmltbohen said:Everything is working properly using the VZ4F's, except I seem to have dropped a lot of signal in the house. Its about 200 feet from the dish and the splitters, is there a compatible amp I can get? Everything is perfect in the garage, which is the building the dish is on. So I think my issues are signal loss related.
I know you're not an idiot. I may be one, but that's another story.tbohen said:veryoldschool, I'm an idiot, any chance you can tell me which model to get?
