Cannot detect SWM


Cannot detect SWM

moved dish location, had to crimp some new connections, also got wires swapped on splitter, everything worked ok for about an hour. Any thoughts?

Re: Cannot detect SWM

First thing to check would be your "crimped" connectors.  You really should be using DirecTV approved compression fittings, not crimped on coax connectors.  It's quite possible you have a stray shield wire, or loose connection.
