Winegard mp1 carryout satellite problems


Trying to install Winegard mp1 carryout satellite. I'm at the part where it shows signal meters and signal strength. I can hear the beeping but all of the transponders are zero's and the signal strength is zero's. How long does this take to get a signal strength. Also the instructions are for a D12 receiver but I have a D10 receiver does this make a difference?

Do you by chance have the Model SK-SWM3 SWM TRAV'LER?  If so, that is a SWM model and will not work with a D10 receiver.

Make sure the dish is set for DirecTV by using the built in switches.  also make sure you have line of sight

No. I have a GM-MP1 winegard carryout.

Hi, Not sure what you mean. I have an account with Directv but not sure about the built in switches. This is for an GM-MP1 carryout.

I have a carryout anser and it has no switches. When I ordered it they said to specify whether its for DISH or DIRECTV. I ordered the DIRECTV version.

Are you following these  instructions exactly?  You still need to aim this dish because it doesn't aim itself ....
