When you press the GUIDE button on the Bell Satellite remote multiple times, the guide toggles through various settings such as "All Channels," "All Subbed Channels," "All HD," etc. The current status is shown at the top of the guide. If the screen says "All HD," you can press the GUIDE button again.He subscribes to lots of HD and SD channels, but when he goes to look at the Guide there are no SD Channels listed - just HD. If he's on channel 500, and pushes the "up channel" button to go to 501 it won't go there. (He subscribes to both channels.) But if he keys 501 in directly it goes there fine.
I have found a new way to align my Shaw dish. Use two iPads and do a FaceTime. Put one ipad facing your tv with the options set to show the satellite signal bars. Use the other iPad on your roof and do your alignment while looking and listening to the bar strength. If you own two ipad that are on the same network and you use the same email address just use your iCloud address to make the call.Sat Finder, is an app that does that or try Satellite Finder / Dish Alignment Calculator with Google Maps | DishPointer.com on your PC if you are not at the location.
I had the same problem but not as far a distance. What I did was install my old satellite, pre HD dish. I toke the SD LNB from the HD dish, installed it and then sent that cable to the HD dish switch on the dish itself. The HD LNB goes into the switch on the back. Then the out cable from the switch goes inside to the receiver.N00b with a dish issue; I need help. I have moved recently and I do not have a dish location that will give me both 82 and 91. I have a narrow lot, a very large tree beside me, and a very tall house. I have gone as high as possible on my roof and I still can't get both 82 and 91 from one location. I have 91 at 75-80%, that seems solid enough.
I have tested every component extensively, I am 99% sure my problem is only line of sight. I have moved my dish so many times I can aim the dish by eye and get 80%....
I think if I add another dish I can aim one at 91 and the other at 82, but they will be about 50' apart. I've read almost every post in this thread, and I have not seen any description of how to wire two separate dishes into my HD (9124?) receiver.
Do I need to wire them into SW21's just like the they are now? That would lead to a big mess of coax cables running around my property. Or is there a way to run a single coax from each dish inside, then put some sort of switch there, and connect to my receiver? Can I run one coax line from each dish LNB to the two receiver inputs?
Also, I have read all the aiming instructions, obviously 91 is easier to find, but if I disconnect both coax lines, run the switch test, then reconnect, I should be able to set the receiver to 82 and find that satellite? Then add the 91 that I know works? Run the switch test again, and I'm good to go?
I appreciate any help you can offer. The only thing worse than paying Bell for HD is paying Bell for HD but not having 82....
