ve1jot,

   I have had this setup for 20 years by an installer. Rick helped me setup for My Theater, The Q and two AZ boxes. Trouble shooting has been exhausting.

 

Sorry but I can't answer your question.

Skip:  I use a 2 way splitter,  I use a splitter on the C cable and a splitter on the KU.  Do you have 2 splitters [1 for C and 1 for KU?  You should have a C band cable and a KU band cable comming into the house!   The "in" conects to the C band and follow the "arrow" to the out and that conects to the 920 and the other out {no conecting line] goes to the disq to the port for C band  Now conect another splitter the same way for the KU band and the out" goes to the disq port for KU band.  I think you are trying to combine and split with 1 4way splitter which won't work.

Skip, your 4 way should have the 920 on the red "out" upper left in the photo, and the LNB to the "In".  4 ways have more loss than 2 way but you should still be above -55 dBm where an amplifier would be indicated.

Johbru,

That's where it's connected.

Going directly to "Input to LNB" on my 920.

But I see no cable connected to the "In" on the splitter.

I know. It was suggested that I hook it directly to my 920. I took the photo during the test. The cable is now connected. My error.

Skip:  Do you have C band only?  Sorry if my info was confusing.   The cable form the lnb should be conected to the "in" side of the 4 way sw.  Follow the red line to the "out".  That should be conected to the 920.  When the 920 is on it sends power back through the "out' up to the "in' where the lnb is conected and powers the lnb.  You can conect the dig. rec to any of the 3 remaining "outs"   Remember the sig comes from the lnb on the dish and is distributed to the other "outs".    This should solve your problem.  If not then you have a bad sw.

If you look at the photo on page 1 I will note where each cable is connected.

 

Upper left out goes to INPUT from Lnb on 920.

Lower left out goes to Diseq which goes to  AZ  Elite HD

Lower right out goes to Diseq which goes to AZ Ultra HD

Since you have C-band when the AZBox (both?) are expecting Ku, and each AZ has a different diseqc switch, and I avoid such switches like the plague, what I now suggest may sound like more work than it is worth.  Connect each AZ to the C-band and verify that you now have C-band DVB I suggest W7 odd TP 4080 29123.  If that works, and you have 22 KHz tone switch(s) place it(them) in the circuit.  C-band is typically tone off.  If that works connect the Ku splitter to the other port on the switch(s), select G5 TP 3.  This is analog on the 920.  Select TP 12 as in post #10.  There have been others who have used diseqc ports 1 and 2 on a 4 port fixing their problem by moving port 2 to 4.

Where you say " The cable form the lnb should be conected to the "in" side of the 4 way sw. ",   I think you should have said "4 way splitter" not "4 way sw" .  Usually, the "in" port of a switch should be connected to the Azbox, and the out ports of the switch connected to the power blocked ports of the splitters.

If you would connect the lnb coax to the IN port of the pictured 4 way splitter, and the port at upper left to the 920, and any other port to the Azbox, that would bypass the diseqC switch, then it should work.

What you say here is OK, but you have to connect the center bottom IN port to the coax to the LNB.   You also don't say what port on the 2 DiseqC switches. The Azbox should be connected to the IN port on those two switches, and I assume the sat 1/sat 2 ports should go to your C and Ku splitters (I'm assuming you have one splitter for C and one for Ku?)  or else you wouldn't need the diseqC switch at all).

The problem is I can't scan in c band on W7.

 

I'm taking a break from this. This is the fifth day behind my big screen TV. My bride ask if I would like a cot placed behind it. Thanks to all but I need a rest.

 

Nothing found on W7.

yes Wejones thanks for the correction [splitter instead of sw].   the "in" conection needs to go to the lnb and the "out {with the red conecting line] needs to go to the 920.  Any other way is wrong! The 920 will feed power from the "out" across to the "in" and up to the lnb.  This will allow the other "outs" to be "hot" to feed the other receivers.  Here is a good look;  http://www.sadoun.com/sat/pruducts/accessories/dishes/bud-slave.htm   I know this is long but there is a good pic of thesplitters and the diseq sw.  I think skip has too much info. and it is confusing him.  I have that problem quiet often.

Maybe I should have done this day 1. So here is a diagram of my stuff. Tell me were I'm wrong.

 

I have 18-20 volts coming out of my 920 on both C and Ku.

I shall now put on my ""skunk at the lawn party" hat.  As I said before, I avoid diseqc switches.  With only two satellite ports, I suspect they may be 22 KHz.  Diseqc 1.0 selects one of four LNB's.  Clearly, you have a bad component, most likely a switch, though in could be an AZ setting.  Make sure both AZ have 22 KHz set at O or off on all C-band birds.  A clue would be the W7 settings.  Now if your dish can't get over that far west, you do have G4 so you can try to scan the 3845 15030 with the 920 on an odd TP.  I use a different method with an SMS 341 F from Spaun.  It is out of production.  My scanner is kaput so I can't draw a picture.

If I have 18-20 volts coming out of the C and Ku band from my 920 should I get the same out of the splitter?

 

I never change anything, I have the 22 KHz tone OFF.

I tried W7 and came up ZERO.

Fellow Members, your posts are welcome here! Do not worry about posting everything perfect. Different receivers and LNB's will give you different Frequencies and Symbol Rates. Some set top boxes, PCI cards and USB receivers, Do Not Require all of the same information that others may need. It is not Required to post everything that others may need to tune in a feed. It is just most important to share the find. We can always adjust the Frequency and Symbol Rates and try the various Modulations and FEC's on our own receivers until we get a lock and then give a polite reply with what works for your receiver, as that information might help others as well.
