I just got back from 4 nights at the Cabin.
(I had business in the area so I stayed there and save the company a few $$)
All the signal strength / ecbno values are at, or better, than posted above.
While there my Mom asked me to re-configure the set up so she could have the 605 Receiver in her room instead of the current "parallel" feed via a multiplexed output from the main TV's 630. It was working great => but you've got to listen to your mother. Besides, it's her place. The 605 was connected to an almost never used basement TV for her grandkids. I bet the whole place is only used 6 weeks a year max!
This sounded a little routine as the RG6 Cable feeds all go via a multimedia panel I had installed in the second bedroom closet. It was a simple matter of going to the basement bedroom, powering down the 605 (which was working fine there), and moving it to the new Master Bedroom. Then I reconnected both sets of RG6 cables with the feed from the multiplexer going to the basement bedroom, and the Sat feed (which comes direct from the multiswitch) going to the New Master Bedroom feed. I use barrel connectors between the RG6 cables.
I then repowered the devices and the mutiplexed feed to the basement bedroom was working fine. I then went to the new Master Bedroom and the red "unlocked" light was on the 605 and the dreaded Sat Feed was not locked in and I should wait. So I did...
Of course it never changed so I was left scratching my head. The first thing I thought of was an issue with the cabling, maybe a stray shield wire was contacting the center conductor on a connector. I didn't see any, nor did I see any damage to the cables, but just in case (as I left a lot of slack) I put new connectors on => so I knew they were perfect. => Still no Joy
So I took the 605 to the multimedia panel and plugged it into the Sat feed from the multiswitch. It locked right in. Bizzare. So I swapped out the Cable from the wall to the 605 in the new Master in case that was the issue, and then re-connected everything. Nope.
So Mom said if you can't get it to work can she at least go back to the parallel feed? So I hooked that back up and it again was working well. I decided to try the 605 there one last time as all the cables and connectors were proven and / or swapped out. (Before this I patched the Sat feed over to the old master bedroom and again the 605 locked right in!) Of course I reconnected it and still no Joy!
I left it with the parallel set up and the 605 connected to the old master and locked in. I'm stumped
Do you have any idea what's going on?
