Dish Network problems. Please help!
Ok. So I just bought a dish network pay as you go receiver for my RV. Also not sure if this is the right place to post this. Anyways I have a manual Wingard round satellite dish on the roof of the RV Coax cable goes directly from the dish to the receiver. I can set elevation and azimuth no skew. I bought a satellite finder today to help find a signal.
My problem is this.... I connect the satellite finder to the dish and receiver as instructed. I point the dish and acquire a signal according to azimuth and elevation given to me on the receiver. The satellite finder says there is a signal there and the box does as well. I hit ok and the receiver goes to live tv. BUT there is no picture the screen is black and after about 30 seconds another screen pops up saying signal lost.
I thought this was because of the satellite finder being in the loop. So I removed the finder thinking BAM problem solved and I will get TV. But when I removed the finder the receiver no longer was picking up a signal.
Now I was told by DISH it because the cable being used is a rg59 and not a rg6. My thought was I was picking a signal up on the receiver was because I was using a newer cable on one side of the finder but the 59 on the other. Which is why no picture. Can anyone else shed some light on this please!
