Switch install..

I'm pretty new to this..here is the scoop..
I had one SD received hooked up...decided to get a second receiver(SD)...

My setup before was with a SW21....So i removed that and installed a dtv3x4 in its place...

Now I have Both receivers running...but i only get signal from one of the satellites (half my channels)...what Am I missing?

if u r using 2 sd receivers if your lnb has 2 hooks up run a cable to each receiver no switch needed! switches as for hd and anything more than 2 receivers only!

How did you hook up the switch to the LNB? Also how was the sw21 hooked up? It wasn't needed if you weren't getting HD.

What you should have two outputs from the LNB pointed at the 91 satellite going into the switch and two outputs from the switch to your two receivers.

You fed a 3 x 4 switch with signals from 91 & 82, when what it needs are signals from 91 & 91. As said above, move the line that is connected to the 82 LNBF onto the spare port on the 91 LNBF, this will then be giving the switch 2 feeds from 91 and you will be good to go.
