DPP44

Where is the best place to buy a DPP44 switch. I found one on ebay for about $100 c/w shipping...anywhere cheaper?

again, thanks. without this forum, I'd still be trying to fish wire through my house for dual tuners!!

One final question. Does is matter which receiver is fed by the power inserter vs. the regular outputs?

Thanks

HDMark,

I would use one of your dual tuner receiver to output 1.

Neither the DPP LNBF or the DPP44 use Power Inserters.

The DPP LNBF gets it's power from the DP Receiver(s).

The DPP44 has a seperate Power Supply that connects directly to the switch.

to avoid confusion I meant to say connect the power adaptor to output #1 and connect one of the dual tuner receivers into the power adaptor.

I've hooked up my DPP44, following the installation guide, but my 9242 only finds one Sat. I'll give the details of my installation and if anyone can offer any advice, it would be much appreciated. I have a Bell dish with a DPP LNBF (Bell installed). I attached the cable from the dish into the DPP44 Sat input No.1. I attached the power inserter to Receiver input 1, then a cable from the power inserter into the DPP separator, then 2 cables into the 2 inputs in the 9242. (The 9242 works fine before I put the DPP44 into the mix). I have a FTA receiver connected to Receiver input No.2. (I had unplugged the power on all receivers and the power inserter before making any connections). I then powered up the power inserter, then the 2 receivers. I then ran the check switch routine on the 9242, but the 9242 does not change the name of the switch to the DPP44 as it says it should in the manual. After this procedure, the 9242 receives all channels on Sat 91 but nothing from Sat 82. The FTA receiver gets all channels from 91. Why does the check switch routine not find the DPP44 and not see Sat 82? Please help.

What sort of LNBF exactly are you using? Bell doesn't generally install DPP equipment!? Also, there should be at least two cables from the Dish to the switch to get both satellites.

It is a dP Plus LNBF. This carries both 82 & 91 in one cable, into the house, then into a dp Plus Separator, which separates the 2 signals and connects to the two inputs in the 9242 receiver. I know Bell doesn't normally install DPP equipment, but the Bell installer said he installs them quite often.
