Directv Low Band with D-Stacked Signal

10-12-2007, 06:25 PM
I have an installation in a Manhattan building where I have 2 feeds coming from the Dish. Initially, I splitted the 2 feeds ( with Directv approved splitters ) and D-stacked 2 of the resulting feeds with Sonora D575. This way, I fed a Spaun 4-12 multiswitch and I got 6 H10 and HR-10 working just fine.
Now, they upgraded the building dish with the new 5 LNB one ( with Lo band). I called the guys from the building and they said the new HR20s are working just fine in a few apts . So I replaced the multiswitch with a Zinwell WB 616. I kept same setup for the feeds ( 2 splitters, 2 D-stackers), but I can't get the extra satellites. Any idea what else needs to be changed? Running two extra feeds is out of the question- the apt looks like a museum.

Are you using the B band converters with your HR20?

Your stacking system and destackers won't handle the new satellites. Your building will need to upgrade their systems to the new MFH2 MDU system when it is available (late 2007/early 2008).
