RE: Pathway X2 second receiver problem

I love it when Sat TV techs say "I can see both your receivers" Of course they can not, the antenna on your end is receive only, the tech can not see it no way, no how, no sir, unless it is connected to a phone line or to the internet via an alternate feed. Now with 2-wsay satellite internet (Take a look at THOSE antennas some time) Then they can "See" you but for Dish or Direct to say they can "See" your receiver is, of course, a lie. Read my post above yours.

RE: Pathway X2 second receiver problem

Had a good DISH tech (in Oklahoma) on the line who was trying to help who said he saw both receivers but the signal was not getting to the 211k in the bedroom. I always love it when someone from Dish or DirecTV makes this kind of a statement. NO ONE! at DirecTV or Dish can "see" your receiver unless you also have it connected to a phone line and if they were to take to time (if that's even possible) to dial in. A satellite receiver is just that, a receiver. It has no 2-way communications ability other than a phone line connection. This "good" Dish tech lied right to your face! Sorry, guess I didn't type correct. To explain further what he was getting at was that he saw BOTH receivers were active and after having me do some things he recommended proved that there was nothing wrong with the receivers or dish but something in our rig internal wiring.

RE: Pathway X2 second receiver problem

Finally got around to do some checking. Connected coax direct to the 211k in the bedroom while leaving the main 211Z connected to the outside IN...Had setup screen in the bedroom but would not connect to progamming. Then connected coax to the main (211Z) direct and coax direct to the 211k in the bedroom. The Main connected to basic channels (not our Programming). The 211k got further this time by trying to acquire a signal and then going to error screen saying not available. Had a good DISH tech (in Oklahoma) on the line who was trying to help who said he saw both receivers but the signal was not getting to the 211k in the bedroom. Concluded wiring in our rig and if splitter the Pathway will not work with any splitter. Will have to look for any splitter but that won't be for awhile as we will be on the move...the DW will have to watch the Main feed.

RE: Pathway X2 second receiver problem

I don't see but one cable going in your rig... on my X2, there is a second cable connection for the second TV as described by Winegard here. It's on page 3 in your manual. http://www.winegard.com/kbase/upload/2452292.pdf If hooking up the Pathway X2 antenna to two receivers, remove the cap from the secondary port, and run a second coaxial cable from the secondary port on the base to the “Sat In” port on a second receiver. Forgot to mention that is an old photo I used here. We do have another coax from the X2 to the Bedroom SAT IN connection. Thanks.

RE: Pathway X2 second receiver problem

It sounds like you are saying you are not getting any picture at all on one TV. Is that correct or are you able to see the setup menu from each receiver on both TV's? We get the setup screen fine on the bedroom TV but when we do the 'check switch' instead of just doing the normal 3 checks before acquiring a signal it ends up doing 38 checks and still no signal and therefore cannot proceed to the rest of the setup. Are you sure that you have selected 2 receivers and not Eastern Arc or Western Arc? Where are you located? Yes we select 2 receivers on the Main but in doing so it blocks out the choice of choosing Eastern or Western arcs.

Pathway X2 second receiver problem

Moved up to the Pathway X2 mainly to get satelite TV in bedroom as our previous Tailgater only has one coax connection. The X2 came with the 211Z receiver which we have on our main TV and moved the 211K we had for the TGater to the bedroom. With that we cannot get the bedroom receiver to acquire a signal. We do have the screen setup but it will not acquire. Both TV's are using HDMI cables. We have 2 coax in connections on the outside as pictured and A/B switch inside. http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z175/PChatters/2012%20Jayco%20Pinnacle/DishHookup004_zps80781f96.jpg When we are hooked up to a CG's cable both TV's work fine. Any suggestions/ideas?

Taking up Pickleball

Our winter home Resort in Casa Grande had 2 lighted courts on our last stay and they are adding 2 more this summer. We got to observe and decided we would take it up this next winter and ordered the paddles & balls and are good to go. Will get some practice time in before we head down in December and are looking forward to playing with our friends, and/or new friends, at the Resort.

RE: FLYING A FLAG IN AN RV PARK

I have never come across anyplace that you cannot fly a flag. I always do when I'm out and never have seen any rules against it. http://i.imgur.com/Yrh0iRwl.jpg]http://i.imgur.com/Yrh0iRwl.jpg height=240 Agree and never had any place or anyone complain. http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/20123601148263.jpg

RE: Need Tailgater help

The Tailgater handle would be positioned to North or thereabouts depending on location in the U.S. The front would then be pointed to the South where the dish can pick up satelites.

RE: Gas grill question

Why not just get a small propane tank (5 lbs, etc.) and put the grill anywhere you want to? Agree.... http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/2014049152341078.jpg Notice how that Nexgrill Stainless Steel Grill is Rusting! Costco has a serious problem with those units ...Take it back! Not sure what you are looking at?? There was a little rust on the stainless steel legs and that was it...not a big deal. Maybe you are confusing 'use' marks with rust. When I forgot to take the grill out of the box behind the pin box while unhitching in Cheyenne recently I crushed the lid when pulling out...that's on me. Went to Costco in Green Bay to get another and noticed there was an upgraded Nexgrill model that had a new leg system. $99 for one of the greatest portable 20K btu grills I've owned and thats why we have another. http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/2014167080325366.jpg http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/2014167080322083.jpg Costco Nexgrill link.
