I have just installed a new SK1000 antenna on my RV. Unit powers up, tracks and finds satellites in the multi-sat mode, but the reciever shows no signal. Comparing it to the orientation of my home dish, it does not appear to be pointing correctly. With there being no provision to manually adjust the dish, I am at a loss!
When the SK-1000 is done searching, is an asterisk * displayed next to the 110, 119, and 129 in the display of the IDU? The asterisk * is an indication that the antenna was successful in locking onto that particular bird. In most search conditions without blockages, all three birds 110, 119, 129 will be able to be acquired. If you are seeing all birds showing a lock status then the problem is more than likely your receiver. Have you performed a check-switch test with your receiver? You only need to do this on the initial setup. Using the remote, press 6, 1, 1 to get to the signal strength screen and select the check-switch button. You should now be able to see the check-switch status. The check-switch type should be a DPP 1K.2. If it is not you will need to run a check-switch test and then you should be able to see signal strength on the receiver. In some cases, a reboot of the receiver will be necessary. This can be acomplished by holding in the power button for ~6-8 seconds on a powered up receiver until the reveiver reboots (about 3-5 minutes). I hope this information helps you out.
The antenna shows that it has sucessfully acquired all three satellites, check switch has been performed numerous times, yet the reciever shows no satellite signal whatsoever.
My question is: is there is any way to manually move the dish to verify a signal?
No, nor would you want to. It is locked on what it has been told to find if you have all three '*'. It can not show an '*' unless it identifies the satellite.
Can you tell me which satellites it says it is seeing and what it says above the satellites when it is finished?
If the unit is displaying all three satellites with an '*' then it is on signal.
Try running a check switch on your receiver. If this doesn't work, you could have either a bad coax connection or a bad receiver.
