I'm hoping a guru can help me as my wife is driving me crazy as we haven't had working TV for a few months now.
We have a DishTV Satellite receiver and live in Nelson. With the current setup, everything was fine and then all of a sudden we either have no TV or only some channels.
I have a HTPC with satellite tuners with give the same result so it's not the box. We have 78% signal strength and 98% quality to the Optus D1 according to the DishTV box.
Some days it works and others not. It's not atmospheric as I've been making mental notes of when it does and doesn't work.
Tonight I hopped in the roof and found when we moved away for a few years and rented the house that someone installed additional cable runs and had a 3-way splitter and a seperate 2-way splitter all full of cables going heavens knows where. There are two feeds coming off the dish by the looks (I'll check this outside tomorrow when it gets above freezing point!!)
I've disconnected everything but the 2-way splitter and have just the single cable run to our TV which we are using connected.
I'll disconnect the other run which I'm not using to the dish as I expect this shouldn't be connected unless it's terminated.
So what could possibly be wrong? Signal quality at 98% suggests it should be all sweetness and light!!
Please, I beg of you, help me!!
