Hey All. I’m at my wits end here. I’ve been trying to get a signal on my new receiver with zero luck.
I got a portable dish for D-TV and switched out the LNB to this:
I can get signal just fine on my sat-finder meter but the web interface shows nothing no matter what I do. I thought for sure that LNB should be fine and I set the skew properly according to dishfinder at 15.4deg. Just for kicks I have tried links from all the sats in the sky around Galaxy19 (Im on SW Ontario Canada) just to be sure and not once I have I seen the signal meter in the GUI change.
All my Co-ax and connections seem to measure fine and the sat finder meter does show signal as mentioned.
One odd observation- the connection at the receiver gets quite warm. Warmer than I would expect. Even with no cable attached it gets very warm. I didn’t thermal cam it yet but it is indeed noticeable.
Any help/thoughts appreciated. I’m pretty proficient at troubleshooting in my day job but I’m stuck here. Unless I am wrong about the LNB compatibility- I’m thinking I got a dud.
Any help appreciated.
