Dish from DirecTV Conversion Coax Question

In the process of converting the Travlr, I see the LNB has 3 cables instead of one like the DirecTV. They are green, red and black. They connect to A,B, and C in the bottom of the turret. I thought I read somewhere that they need to be connected correctly to make everything work right. Can someone help with the connection sequence? Thanks. Chuck

RE: new satellite hook up?

We have a Winegard Travlr on the roof and a dedicated coax for a tripod on the side of the RV. Both run to an AB switch so we can change over if the roof unit is blocked. I had to run coax from the outside connection to the Component cabinet but no big deal. Works great. Chuck

RE: Dish Network has tough road to become mobile carrier

. . . he is really ticked off at DirecTV or DISH (one of them ran over is dog or something) . . . Good one Thanks! It's just hard to explain his nonsense posts (for RV'ers). I get it that he has a grudge and he is at a S&B location, I just don't know why he posts his BS here. If everyone stops replying to his nonsense he will go away. This kind of person feeds on your responses. Chuck

RE: AT&T/Direct TV is Now Losing Over 8500 Customers Per Day

I can't for the life of me understand why anyone continues to engage this guy. If we totally ignore him, in a short period of time he will go elsewhere. Chuck

Dish Sat Signal Strength

Just had Dish installed including a Hopper 3. The Sat signal strength show about 50%. With DirecTV the signal strength was 99 to 100%. Clear sky view. So for Dish subscribers, is this about normal or do I have an issue with the dish adjustment? Thanks. Chuck

RE: How long to return to camping after open heart surgery

I think that your cardiologist is the best source for an answer to that question and not folks on an RV forum. Everyone recovers differently, has different procedures and potential complications. So you won't get your answer here. You will from your doctors, so ask them. I have had 3 heart procedures in the last 4 years, none of them bypass. My recovery was quick. But that was me. Chuck

RE: TriMark Door Handles - Please submit failures !

Door latch has two locks. One standard and the other a deadbolt type. The deadbolt type stopped working with the key. Had to fiddle with it until it finally unlocked and now the keyhole is covered over so I won't get locked out. Not sure what to replace it with once the whole thing fails. Chuck

RE: Outdoor "mudroom" to prevent cat from door-dashing?

We used the air can training. Our Cali got a shot of air any time she approached the door whether we were inside or out. The air can went outside when we left. Even if we are inside and she starts to the door, the air can goes off and we say "no". She now knows what no means. Once we put on her harness and leash, she knows it's OK to head for the door. It took about a month but soon the training paid off. Occasionally we still have to do a reminder, but not often. Coming in from the outside requires just cracking open the door enough to be sure she isn't poised for a dash. Chuck

RE: Free OTA streamer Locast adds two more cities

Last I checked, Locast was not free. It did not work unless you paid the fee even though it promotes itself as free.Chuck

RE: Damaged RV on roads on way home from Florida, anyone else?.

We just did a trip from Florida to Maryland and back. I95 is bad in Georgia and terrible in South Carolina. Virginia is hit and miss. At times I wait for the cabinets to be shaken off the walls and everything to fall apart. We just added new Bilstein shocks and it does not seem to matter. In EVERY state the bridge to road transitions are a disaster and the bridge decks are a mess. Unfortunately, we have found this to be the case in most states we have traveled, with Louisiana being the worst and California second. Chuck

RE: Direct TV DVR

It will not work without the dish attached and the power inserter on to feed the LNB. ChuckIncorrect...unless there's been a change in the last month. It will only work that way for us and has been that way for a couple of years. Having said that, it may very well depend on what receiver you are using. Our HR24-200 will hit the 775 error immediately if it isn't connected to the dish and we can not go any further with the receiver. Chuck

RE: Direct TV DVR

If you're disconnected from the dish you will get the 775 error and the receiver will stop there. You need to keep the dish connected while the receiver is going through the setup. Never mind if it is pointing to anything. Wait until it goes through the entire process and it will start receiving satellite info and immediately give you searching for a satellite. When that happens you can hit the menu button and go to recordings. It will not work without the dish attached and the power inserter on to feed the LNB. Chuck

RE: Direct TV DVR

We always have to wait for searching for sat on the menu before we can switch to the menu for the recorded stuff. If you didn't get to that then, as others ask, did you power off and retry. If some questions don't get answered there is no way to answer your questions. Chuck

RE: Roadside Assistance billing scam

I would suggest you take these to your local consumer protection agency and file a complaint. Chuck

RE: Firefox disables add-ons

I did have to update to 66 and in the process of trying the workaround, lost all my addons. I had to go find them and reinstall. Chuck

RE: Firefox disables add-ons

Been like that for days now for me. They keep saying the fix is coming. I'm not waiting. I'm back to Chrome. Chuck

They aren't junk mailers. They are major spammers. Chuck
