Allan B Possible. What if you swap out the DP34 for the first one, does it function in that location.?

Also, you should be aware that it does not matter if you use Inputs 1 & 2 on the first switch, for example, 1 & 3 or 2 & 3 will still work just fine. As it could be an issue with one of the link ports. If you try 1 & 3, just make sure you use 1 & 3 for the link cables.

tsgee When I run a check switch it says it detects less satellites than before. It only sees 82.

I tried switching the input line #1 and #2 on the second dp34 that is coming from the "additional switch" output from first dp34, ran check switch and same result. I tried switching the output line #1 and #2 from the receiver output of the second dp 34, ran check switch and still the same.

I find it strange that everything was working and then when I disconnected and reconnected the inputs and outputs on the second switch it doesn't. Could I have shorted out the switch?

Allan B Which Sat does it see?

Try swapping over the 'link' lines see if it sees a different Sat.

That should help prove if the fault is with a line/crimp or port on a switch.

tsgee Any help would be appreciated. I currently have a DP34 running. I bought another DP 34 hoping to add another 4 outlets. I ran two lines from the first switch (from the output to additional switches) to the dish input of the second switch. After running a check switch, I can see both 91 and 82 on the outputs from the second DP34 switch. I disconnected and mounted the second dp-34 switch to the wall, now it only reads one satellite. I tried disconnecting and reconnecting numerous times and running check switches also and it still only see's one satellite. I even removed the switch from the wall like before when it first saw both satellites and reconnected but now it only sees one. Any suggestions?

Pinza No it is not. That is a Legacy switch, it is no DP compatible. It is for singe Satellite reception from 1 x LNBF to 4 Receivers.

Cascading from a DP34 you need a DP34 or a DPP44.

Is this the same as DP34

Is this switch the same as a DP34? If not, can I cascade it off an existing DP34 to get 8 lines?

Jostudly I would have to have a 2nd cable going from the lnb to the in/out on the diplexer in the garage and tv on diplexer to bedroom tv leaving the sat on the diplexer with nothing hooked to it? As the other cable from the lnb would be going directly to the wall in my living room.

Pinza It does not matter how many wallplates there are.
2012-07-07 06:42 PM
Jostudly I am sorry but I drew this out on paper and there is only 1 wall plate in my living and 1 in the bedroom and none in the garage. Please re-read my last post which I edited.

Pinza OK lets try this one last time. I really did think that telling you what the TV port went to would make the INPUT & OUTPUT obvious. I was wrong.

Line from LNBF to Wall plate. (In Garage install a Diplexer, with TV Port connecting to Line going to Bedroom, INPUT from LNBF to INPUT on Diplexer. SAT on Diplexer to WALLPLATE).

Between Wall Plate and DPP Seperator, connect a second Diplexer (With TV port connected to TV2 Output of 9242, INPUT on Diplexer towards 9242, SAT on Diplexer to WALLPLATE, ).

Or something like that.......

Jostudly What connects to the sat port on the diplexer in my garage another cable from the lnb? This would leave the in/out on the diplexer in the garage with nothing connected to it? Also when adding a diplexer behind my dual receiver between the wall plate and dpp separator does the in/out connect to the wall plate and the sat connect to the dpp separator?

Jostudly Yes the line runs from the lnb to the garage but then the line in the garage that goes to the receiver would not directly go to the wall plate. I would have a line from the lnb to the diplexer in the garage and then a line from the other side of the diplexer to the wall in the living room and then a dpp separator to the 2 inputs on the dual. Then 1 line from the diplexer in the garage to the wall plate where my other tv is? Is this correct? So 1 diplexer in the garage and 1 dpp separator in the living room?

Pinza Does the line from the LNBF to the Receiver run through the Garage.? If Yes use Diplexers.
2012-07-07 11:56 AM
Jostudly Sorry I still do not understand. I will have 1 cable coming from my lnb to the coax inside wall plate in my living room. Another short cable from the outside wall plate to a dpp separator and 2 more cables from the dpp separator to the back of the dual receiver. My other tv in my bedroom has the cable running from behind the wall to my garage so I would need something to connect at the garage which I thought maybe a 2nd dpp separator would do.
