A new 4100 installation. Multi receiver problem.
I'm a new user having just switched from Rogers. I have a 2700 and two new 4100 receivers ($47 ea at Future Shop) that I installed. Signal strength is 90% on all receivers. When I connect using a 4 way switch (Sat Switch from Radio Shack) and only connect one receiver, all is well. When I connect a second receiver I suddenly lose all the odd number transponders. Could the switch be faulty or do I have another problem ? Cable run from the dish to the switch is 100' and then another 25' to each receiver.
Also, would grounding the cable from the dish help the problem. Currently its not.
thanks for any help
