Winegard / satellite tv
« on: March 15, 2008, 07:15:42 PM »
Hi everyone,  I'm new to the forum and have a satellite tv question.  I thought I new a lot about satellite tv but I need some help from the experts.  I did a search but could not find a similar post.

Several years ago I installed my own Dish Network home system and it has worked fine since.  I just purchased a used Dutch Star with the Winegard MV3500 antenna system.  I tried to hook up my home receiver today and I could not get it to recognize the switch or receive a signal.  My receiver is an EcoStar model 3900.  Is there a compatibility issue?  I did make sure that the Winegard was set to DishNetwork by taking off the dome and confirming the switch positions. 

Unless someone here can help me, I will have to resort to taking it in to a shop.  (sounds expensive)
