Pathetic...

Recommended Posts

Well, I haven't emailed them yet. I was planning on emailing them tonight after I go over some things today. I left my 6000 plugged in while at school and hasn't gotten a signal yet. I'm thinking yesterday was a fluke or something. There's not a cloud in the sky and the signal is jumping from 0-29. It very well could be that the dish is pointed wrong, or that there's something wrong with the coax cable. I've checked the feedhorn window and there's no water in it, so that's not the problem.

My "service" is set for the 15th between like 9AM and 12. Unfortunately my mom will be the only one home, so I can't monitor anything.

I'll probably end up trying to tweak the dish sometime when the snow melts off the roof (snow is off the dish).

I'll keep you guys updated.

Okaaaaay, so today I do some things...

Now see, I have "extenders" for my coax that go into my modem, they weren't spliced because my dad never did it. When I first got my 7000, the coax's wouldn't fit (the copper center thing [yes, im a noob] wasn't long enough) so I had to get extenders. Rather than waiting a few days to find something I could splice, me and my dad went ahead and got some like wall jacks and put a short coax that went into my modem.

So today I think, "why don't I take off the "extenders" and try it with the 6000?" Well, It worked! I got a 62 signal. The sat out coax is longer than the sat in (don't know why) so I could easily hook up my out coax to the 7000, it's the sat in that had the problem. So I use the different "extender" that I didn't use before and it works!

You may be confused, if you are, don't worry about it. Just know that, I'm back!

I'm getting a lot of failed transmissions, that's probably why I have such a slow upload.

Hi BirdFan,

Glad to hear you isolated the problem.  I have had many transmission failures today as well.  The status said 'Received first heartbeat' and would not change states until....

Reregistered dish and all is working fine again.

Don't know if they were making 'adjustments' at NOC or what, but system is 'all files up to date' and working fine now...oddly, the file name/date has not changed.

Yeah, my software status is still at 'Received first heartbeat message.'

notice it is with the 1013kB test, 2992kB seems to just hang...maybe a problem with lost tranmission packets?

idk

looks like a reboot again and again and again....
