Thread: Need help with satellite setup for Echo 7

  1. #1

    Need help with satellite setup for Echo 7

    I have two twin LBN's that go to a Diseqc 2X1 that goes to a Viewsat 2000 Platinum. I can get the Echo 8,10 satellite but I can not get the Echo7 satellite to come in.

    The two LBN are two port with the cable being in the left side of the LBN looking straight into the ports for the 119 and 110 satellite LBNs. The 119 is on the left side of the dual head looking from the dish.

    I am not sure what the Diseqc is.

    The satellite setup screen for my viewsat has the following categories:"

    Category Options

    Satellite All satellites
    LBN power on or off
    LBN type standard, none, legacy twin LBN1,legacy twin lnb2 quad etc.
    LBN Freq 11500
    22khz on off
    TP freq all freq>>>>
    search option all FTA scrambled
    diseqc none, tone boost a, tone boost b, port 1-4
    motor off user etc.
    legacy switch none or various types of switches

    Right now when I look for echo 8,10 I will find the Echo 8,10 satellite in the upper right hand corner.
    This is with settings:
    echo 8,10
    legacy twin lnb1
    11250
    off
    12253
    all
    port 2
    off


    When i go to Echo 7, with the following settings I do not get and satellite description in the upper right hand corner.
    echo 2
    legacy twin lnb2
    11250
    off
    12224
    all
    port 1 or port = none
    off

    I cannot get the Echo 7 satellite to add its channels but I do niot think I will be able to get this until I get the Upper right ahnd corner to say Echo 7 when I am in antenna setup mode can anyone please help?

    first ,, the diseqc switch you need if you do have 2 separate lnb and to set which lnb you going for Example == you run cable from lnb 8,10 to port 1 ,, you have to set the diseqc setting in your receiver 1 and 119 , echo 7 if you put the cable from the lnb to the diseqc switch port 2 then on your antenna setting its must be the echo7 set on diseqc 2


    now on your antenna setting only what i am going make is red color is the set up on your dish setting
    that what you describe your dish set up

    Satellite All satellites
    LBN power on or off
    LBN type standard, none, legacy twin LBN1,legacy twin lnb2 quad etc.
    LBN Freq 11250
    22khz on off
    TP freq all freq>>>>
    search option all FTA scrambled
    diseqc none, tone boost a, tone boost b, port 1-4
    motor off user etc.
    legacy switch none or various types of switches

    Right now when I look for echo 8,10 I will find the Echo 8,10 satellite in the upper right hand corner.
    This is with settings:
    echo 8,10
    legacy twin lnb1 go standerd
    11250
    off
    12253
    all
    port 1
    off


    When i go to Echo 7, with the following settings I do not get and satellite description in the upper right hand corner.
    echo 2
    legacy twin lnb2 go standerd
    11250
    off
    12224
    all
    port 2 or port = none
    off
    hope that will help you

    Re: Need help with satellite setup for Echo 7

    I did exactly what you said to do and still no good. Can anyone help me understand how to get the Echo 7 label to come up in the top right hand corner of the screen when I have chose Echo 7 as the satellite with the correct setup. When I go to the antenna setup screen for the Echo 8,10 satellite I get the Echo 8, 10 satellite recognition in the top right hand corner.

    Please remember I completely new at this so I might be missig something that I do not know to ask for.
