I'll help what I can over the weekend...
When you apply power to the Carryout, do you hear (or see when the dome is off) the antenna moving?
If not, verify that you have 12 volts going to the antenna.
If you can confirm that there is 12 volts at the Carryrout end of the power cord, and the Carryout still does not move, then call Tech Support again for further assistance.
If the Carryout is moving when you apply power, see if it goes through a series of movements similar to what you see in my video. If it seems to search and then settle in looking somewhat south, then the Carryout is most likely fine and the Dish network "switch test" is the snag.
A few more things to try assuming the Carryout powers up on moves...
1. Re-set the switches for Dish Network. (Flip them off - on -off - on a few times)
2. Power up the Carryout and let it finish the search routine. Then connect both coax cables to the Carryout.
Power on the Dish receiver. Go to the "Point Dish" screen and run the "switch test". Please note that this can take several minutes to complete. It may look like nothing is happening, but be patient and wait it out for 5 minutes or so. Once the switch test runs successfully, it should say "SW64" or possibly "UNKNOWN".
If none of these hints get it going please call tech support again, I assure you they will get you fixed up.

Thanks for the information. We will try your suggestions tomorrow. By the way the Carryout does go through the search movement. We also viewed the video on YouTube the night before our first attempt to install the Carryout. Again thanks for the suggestion. I'll post our results.
CW is selling the Carryout at $799 for CW members and the VuQube v2000 (automatic) is selling at $899 for CW members (CW=Camping World).
On another note, I was told from a Winegard support person that there was a coupon or rebate form inside the packaging of the Carryout that Club W members can complete and get a rebate back. The amount I am not sure however, if anyone has purchase a Carryout or knows about this, please advise.
Hence and hopefully the rebate is a significant one as this would definetely be a "no brainer" of which one to purchase and a "deal breaker" of the base VuQube v1000 (manual portable satellite and not automatic like the Carryout or V2000) which selling at CW for CW members at the low price of $599.
Actually, I had to fax my CLUB W application in (a couple of weeks ago) as your Website doesn't support Canadian addresses however, I will wait for the rebate in the mail. Hope it comes soon, as I will be driving down to CW next week to purchase either the VuQube or Carryout (preferably the Carryout if the price is the same or close to the VuQube v1000 when the rebate is applied).
A question for DishNetwork. I currently am using the folding Winegard Satellite. And I can live with having only 119 (I know I can move it to see 110 but that's a hassle) but my problem is that most times when I try to use the "second"TV is screws everything up. I'm using a DVR 522 with dual tuner. I went ahead and ordered the Carryout so I can watch 110 and for the ease of setting it up. (I'm a full-timer) However I would still like to know if the Carryout also help with the dual tuner situation? Also I'm planning on hooking up a second receiver to it.
Hi all. This has nothing to do with the last post directly, but I made the DP switch changes and went to my Dish setup screen and did the switch test. It does take along time. All went well. I am VERY satisfied with the Carryout. One note, try to have the "widest view" of the southern sky as possible. The first test was between my house and RV, and when I notice I had created a "valley" I moved to the front of my RV and within two minutes maximum I had a good signal. BTW, Camping World is hosting classes that I found very helpfull.
When you try to use the second tuner, are you running a second coax cable or are you using the splitter that DISH Network provides?
These splitters are for something called "DISHPRO" LNB's and don't really work with the LNB on either the Carryout or your RD-9046 folding unit. Try running a second cable, if this doesn't solve the issue, please let me know.
