You don't need a CCK to connect your whole home to internet if you have a "Genie." Just connect the box directly to your router via the cat5 connection on back. DTV and their techs will tell you that's crazy but I've been doing it for well over a year with no internet connectivity "issues" besides the slow VOD speeds (and those existed while I was using the wired CCK anyw...

Mike, I agree not good solution has been proposed here. However, I think Peds48 is just pointing out that in your proposed solution above you've described changing your wiring in a way that actually makes it seem like it's -NOW- installed correctly (therefore, the assumption is that it was installed incorrectly before). You mention: ...connected the DECA Bridge (located a...

Mine's still not fixed either. I've also given up. If so many people's have been fixed can someone please point me to a thread where it explains how?

Yep, those are the exact things I was doing...following those steps exactly in fact from another post. As I said, after 2 hours of moving very slowly a degree at a time I wasn't able to find any signal. I feel somewhat confident I'm not completely screwing this up and really curious how often you get a bum LNB. Is there anyway to test the LNB without actually picking up a...

So, I bought a slimline 3 swm dish and lnb from a guy on craigslist last week. Got everything set up in my backyard to test it. Pole is plumb, went to dispointer.com and dialed in the numbers for the DirecTV 101 satellite for my LAT and LON (based on my iPad location). Set the correct tilt and skew. Put dish on pole, connected to power inserter, then to HR24-200 box. Turn...

OK, a few last questions since I'm now looking at actual dishes: If I get the standard (non-SWM) SL3 dish -- which is quite a bit cheaper than the SWM version -- and I'm only planning on having the single H24-200 receiver do I still need some sort of multiswitch or can I just wire one output of the LNB to the H24 and change the receiver settings to "multiswitch"? What if ...

Edit: you guys are too fast. My internet connection from Brazil at the moment won't let me post as quickly as you're replying... Thanks. Just realized I'm actually going to take an H24 not an HR24 as I won't need DVR but would like to have HD. Sounds like the SWM dish with power inserter is the easiest way to go so I'll follow that path. Thanks for the help.

OK, a little more research online and I've found what I know to have in my attic which is a SWM power inserter but connected to that is just a standard 5 port splitter so I'm guessing that I may have a SWM-LNB on my dish at home. But, I guess the big question is: If I'm just setting up a single box connected directly to a dish do I need all this SWM stuff or can I just co...

OK, I'm pretty tech savvy but admit to being pretty naive on the details of a satellite setup so sorry for a noob question. At home I've got DirecTV with HR34 media center and 4 HR24 receivers. It was installed in March 2012 as a completely new install. I believe that just 1 coax cable comes off the of the dish and comes into the attic into a "SWM" (?) box (looks like a s...

Just as another update here. I had Time Warner come out and replace my router with a newer model. Completely different manufacturer and model and just out of the box. After going through the same reset process I am still getting similar (very slow) speeds. I think I can effectively rule out my internet hardware.

Thanks, I'll try the server side reset. Again, in my opinion based on everything I have read, I really think that this speed issue is not a specific problem based on a bunch of users' slow internet. Is clearly a connection setting issue somewhere. No amount of reboots or speedtest will fix that. There are just too many people who have posted about this for it merely to be...
