[TechAssist] Re: DSS signal distro question


Your on the wrong Satelitte!  Any satelitte will give you a good signal and
the receiver will lock onto the signal if your on the right sat. for the
signal provider. If they have Direct Tv, you must be looking at the Direct
Tv Satelitte. If they have Dish Network, you must be aimed at one of their
satelitte. Check the cordenance and make sure your on the right satelitte
for the receiver provider. Neil

Subject: [TechAssist] DSS signal distro question

Customer installed his own Sony DTV system. They told me they could not get
the receiver to lock on to the signal. I rarely mess with satellite
installations but the installer in the area has missed 2 appointments
already and will not call them back. Anyway, they are using a diplexer to
combine antenna and sat signal into one and splitting back up at the tv. I
put my inline signal meter in to see if the dish was aimed properly and it
is pegged out but no signal at the receiver.

The antenna is going through an amplifier before it goes into the diplexer.
My question is, does the line coming from the antenna amplifier need to go
into a power pass connector as well as the DSS line? I've heard of this
problem before. The diplexer installed now has only one power pass jack on
it which the DSS goes into. Thanks for any help!!
