I have two dishnet antenna one for 65 and another for 110/119. I have three dish receiver connected to SW 64 occuping all the input 1a1b 2a2b and 3a3b and outputing to all three dishnet receivers. How do I connect FTA receiver and leave the existing three receiver at the same time. (Note: I have two LNBs on 110/119 antenna both LNBs have two out put going into 1a1b2a2b of sw64 and I have one Lnb with 65 with two output going into 3a3b of sw64).
Yes. You should not have a problem. Just remember what Jason said, configure the switch property. While you are using a SW64, in the antena setup screen you'll need to configure the DiSeQC for each antena looking at the port in which it is connected on the SW64
sorry, my mistake. Is it a legacy "Dish Network" sw64? If so then hopefully your receiver has the correct switch type offered in its menu (legacy, disecq, etc) so that you can select legacy. I know my C00lsat has those settings. So that depends on your FTA receiver.
But you will need the power converter unit, for sure.
Viewsat does to, but the Pansat does not. You have to set the DiSeCQ switch to the ports installed on the SW64. You do not have to use the switch, just set it up on the configuration as if you were using one.
Thanks! that worked like charm....what do I do about getting all the echostart channel....I sat scaned over and getting all the channels except for some india channels and some adults channels. Any suggetion what I sould do? not sure what the problem is, I have strong signal and quality. Do you think I should set up disqec instead SW64?
FTA will work with SW switches, but NOT always and NOT well..Coo*lsat and Viewsat were created when many wanted to use their DN receivers and DN subs with SW switch installation hookups, so they made those receivers "receptive" to SW switches...but all other receivers usually have MUCH problems with those switches...thats why disque switches are usually mentioned when using FTA, cause they are good with ALL FTA receivers..
