Skip you have a very understanding bride!  Mine would have had me on the"cot" by the dish on the first night!   "Anony 55" is probably right about the sw.   I pluged in my old 920 and it is not much different than the 922 except; more sats, better menu, and better symble rate.   Your 920 is good, so the prob is either splitters or sw's...  You get C and KU out of the splitters so the problem has got to be the sw's.  The old method I used to seperate C and KU was a mechanical "A"/"B" switch.  I have 1 diesq now and it seems to work ok It came with the pansat 9500 when I bought it.   Also have you tried the back off button to let the AZ re-boot?  sometimes I have to do that with my AZ.  Have you checked radioshack?  I use an "Ideal" 2-way satellite digitalcable splitter 5mhz-2.3ghz and an EV-41A 4x1 sw.

    This knuckle head would like all to accept my apology for waisting your time and effort in resolving my C band problem.

     It was 2 weeks ago tonight that I could not find the PBS feed on AMC1. The next day Rick suggested that I swap out the C and Ku cables at both ends. Late this afternoon I swapped cables and now I have C band but now I have to add a new length of cable for Ku.

Skip,

 

Don't be so hard on yourself.  A bad cable in the main ribbon can be a tough one to figure out sometimes, especially when it works one day and then not the next day.  It is all part of the learning experience.  Put all the new knowledge away in your brain and you will be all set for the next time something strange happens.

 

Thanks to all who were helping.

 

Rick

Skip, before you replace that cable try the connector replacement first. Weater can kill electrical connections over time. The new compresson connectors are better to put on. They last longer.

Thanks to Rick's supply and hardware I'm back on-line with C and Ku.  It was another Marx Brothers routine.

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. We all appreciate the efforts and energy of the Posters!
