Still trying to hook up Direct dish

Me again I now have a reciever from a single LNB round Direct dish. My used Direct dish is a oval shaped 3 LNB,multi swith type with 4 outputs.It seems to not work together. Should they work together or should I find a single LNB round one? Thanks

You have to select dish type in dish set up selection. Threnis a few different dish types to select from. I had this situation. Newer recievers arnt compatible with round ice house dishes. So in the set up program it has to be selected on the type of dishbu have. My wife dose this and were gona have to re learn before ice again. But i know one has to select proper equipment options. Hope his helps

I'd call Direct tv customer service and ask for some help. They aren't going to "bust" you. Don't specifically tell them what you're doing but just give them enough to help you out. I called when I was doing this and they helped me out.

FHFO, I just hooked up a dish to my fish house 2 weeks ago. I have a multi head dish with 4 out puts, no switch on it. I hook up a single cable to one of the outputs and hook that right to my receiver. since it is just one cable to the receiver you can receive only one satellite at a time. I am using a direct tv dish with a dish network receiver. I pick up the local channels on my hd antenna and then use my satellite to pick up satellite 119. I am using a portable mount that I place on the roof. make sure the mount is level. I use a satellite meter (I think they are only about $15) to make aiming easier. Once it is level I aim it using my compass and meter and usually can hook up in a few minutes. Hope that helps.

Jim

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
