Thanks for the replies, guys. Crisis averted. Seems the short piece of coax running from port one on the switch to the power was fubar. Switched out the coax and all is well on all six receivers.

|Allan B||Is it the correct Power Inserter? The ones for the SW44 are not the same.|

|Paolo||maybe try disconnecting the cable from your 6131, do a check switch, save it, then connect the cable back and do another check switch, and save it, see if that helps|

|jdevlin||That port should work the same as the other ports.|

Hi folks, had to register a new profile, no idea what password was and no longer can get into the email address it was registered to....
Anyways, trying to hook up 6 receivers but have run into a problem. Here’s my setup;
Dpp quad lnb, have two lines running directly to 2X 9400 receivers with separators.
Other two lnb lines going into dpp44 switch.
Port one to power inserter, ports 2,3, and 4 going to another 9400, a 9241 (with separators), and a 6131.
I have a 2nd 6131 which is where my problem is. I’ve used the port on the power inserter and can only get the 91 satellite after performing a check switch. Is that port not meant to provide proper signal to a receiver perhaps?
Thanks for reading

This picture shows the DPP Twin on the Right;
It is important to note that there are 2 OUTputs together on the Left side and one INput on the Right side. You must therefore use the correct 2 ports. The INput is not used by Bell TV.

|JCMore||Thanks Dirtroad. I'll give it a shot and report back.|

I have seen posts by professional installers that recommend removing the coaxial cables from the receiver then do a checkswitch (38 of 38) and save the results. Then connect the separator and lnb and do another checkswitch (2 of 2) and save the results and it should be working. It is reported this will clear the problem.
If it doesn't, remove the separator and connect the single coax to one tuner and do another checkswitch to take the separator out of the equation, to see if you are able to see both satellites.

|JCMore||Hi jdevlin. Yes I do have the power inserter connected to port 1 and double checked all connections. Everything looks good but check switch continues to fail and no satellites(82 or 91) respond. I know this LNB has a built in switch but my understanding is that it is disabled when the DPP44 is in the loop.|

Do you have the power inserter connected to the coax that is attached to port 1?
Is the power cable from the adapter plugged into the inserter properly?

|JCMore||Thanks DM_4U. I hoping there's a better way to go. I've already bought the DPP44 and would prefer to run 2 rather than 4 cables from the dish into the house. Any other thoughts? I read a post that mentioned that the coax center pins need to be longer for the DPP44 switch so I'm going to explore that today.|

Re DPP44 Switch
The attached link shows how to connect a DPP44 switch with your DPP Twin LNB
This should work if connected properly. I had a similar problem and had to run check switch twice and then it worked, however I was working with a DPP Quad LNB so a bit different as I'm picking up both Satellites 82 and 91.

I'm not positive about this...but I believe that your problem stems from your DPP "Twin" LNB.
I believe what you need is a DPP "Quad" LNB and then you can eliminate the need for your DPP 44 switch altogether...until you want more than 4 receivers.
