Using the oval dish with Mitsubishi HDTV Receiver with Directv (Model SR-HD5.)


My Standard definition Sony gets great signal on most transponders while my HD receiver only receives only a few xponders and at much lower signals. Ex: Sat110/Xponder 20 is 98+ signal on my SD receiver, while the HD is at 60 signal. Is there anything I am missing on my setup? Swapped cables and still the same result.

Your HD5 is a Hughes E86 clone. They are famous for failure beginning most often with lower values due to too much heat over time.

But I just got it....for free =)


So im not missing anything on my setup? No special switch or combining two cables? The manual is horrible at explaining anything with the dish. Anyways, local HD works great on the unit.
