Direct TV connections

After several tries, I finally got the second reciever for our pinnacle. I have a D12 in the living room on a 18" round dish and it works fine. I tried to install the new reciever, H24, and can't get the satellite signal. I've changed the settings to the 18" round and multiswitch, but nothing. Does the H24 require the slimline dish? It has the option for selecting the 18" round in the menu. first time this TV has ever been hooked up, so I'm not sure the signal from the satellite is making it to the rear TV. The reciever seems fine, I get the direct logo and the elevation and asmuth is the same, great signal on the D12. Nothing on the H24.

Are using the Sat input specifically for the bedroom TV directly from the dish?

Also which multi-switch setting are you using? If it is an HD receiver it won't work on the 18" dish.

Using the satellite connection receptable mounted above the electrical receptacle by the tv. Changed the settings in the menu to multiswitch at direct's direction. They tell me the dish isn'the aligned but the d12 is right on.

Grumpy...is there another in for the rear tv? I just have the coax from the dish hooked up where the male is by the water valve controls under one of the front slides.

You have the FLSA right? There is a specific SAT connection for the rear TV where the cable connection is.

Hopefully the SAT ANT CONNECTIOn is providing the required DC VOLTAGE to control the SAT DISH... Has to be a direct connection for me to use my older one... Can't go through one of those multi port units which blocks the DC VOLTAGE...

All the times I used this setup with one two head SAT DISH and two SAT RCVRS all I did was run two RG cables into the RV with one going to the living room area and one going to the bedroom area. Then I had to use two SAT RCVRS.

Then I would always use the VIDEO OUTPUT of the SAt RCVR to go to one of the selecteable VIDEO INPUTs on the HDTV set.

This way I could use the REMOTE to select SAt TV or CABLE/OTA TV using the remote...

When all the more modern units stareted coming supporting SAt Tv i quit using my house unit along with our trips...

We get all of our HDTV fill from picking up the OTA HDTV Digitals TV signals now from the local towns using the crank up OTA BATWING antenna...

It is all high quality HIGH DEF digital TV now coming from the local towns...
