Subject: DISH Pro Plus Twin LNBF Installation Information & Special Considerations
Introduction
To prepare you for the upcoming release of the DP Plus Twin LNBF, this bulletin provides important information
about this advanced LNBF. Before doing this installation, you should know how this LNBF is used, know its
special considerations, and read the attached DISH Pro Plus Twin LNBF User’s Guide. Please visit the Retailer
Website for any updates to this guide.
How It Works
•
•
This LNBF receives the 119º West and 110º West orbital locations and delivers them to up to two
receivers. Either output port can feed on a single cable:
o A DISH Pro single-tuner receiver
o A DP Plus dual-tuner receiver with a DP Plus Separator
o A Legacy receiver (without a DISH Pro Adapter)
A third port labeled LNB IN supports reception of a third orbital location delivered from a DISH Pro
compatible LNBF.
Special Considerations
Refer to the DISH Pro Plus Twin LNBF User’s Guide for detailed installation instructions and for the special
considerations below.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
DP Plus dual-tuner receivers require a software download to complete the installation. A special
download procedure is included in the user guide.
There is a 200’ cable length limit for DISH Pro and DP Plus dual-tuner receivers with some additional
limitations as detailed in the user guide.
When connecting a Legacy receiver, a second receiver must also be connected to power the LNBF:
o If the second receiver is DISH Pro or DP Plus, the DP Plus Twin will be fully functional.
o If the second receiver is Legacy, the LNB IN port (for a second satellite dish) cannot be used.
Legacy receivers will recognize the DP Plus Twin as an SW64 switch – this is normal.
The DP Plus Twin may be connected to a DP Plus 44 switch, but not to DP21 switches or DP34 switches.
A DP Plus Separator allows a DP Plus dual-tuner receiver to be fed by a single cable – it cannot be used
to feed two single-tuner receivers.
The DISH Player-DVR 921 cannot be installed using two cables directly connected to both DP Plus Twin
ports at this time. The 921 software will be upgraded later to add this support.
The DISH 721 does not have support for the DP Plus Twin at this time. The 721 software will be
upgraded later to add this support.

Wiring Diagrams
Example: If you have a Legacy receiver attached 150 feet from a DISH Pro Plus Twin and a Single
LNBF 50 feet from the DPP Twin, then the DP or DP Plus receiver must be within 150 feet of the
DPP Twin. The cable length between the DPP Twin and the Single LNBF is limited to 50 feet
because the maximum distance between the Legacy receiver and the Single LNBF is 200 feet.
If the cable length between the Legacy receiver and the DPP Twin was only 120 feet, then the
Single LNBF could be extended to the 80 feet max from the DPP Twin LNBF. The DP/DPP
receiver to the DPP Twin separation would be limited to a max of 120 feet as well.

Troubleshooting Tables
When you run Check Switch, you do not see “DPP Twin” identified as a device or LNBF on a DISH Pro
Plus or DISH Pro receiver. Instead, all you see are Xs.
Possible Reason
What to Do
•
The DISH Pro Plus Twin LNBF may not be properly
connected.
•
Check all the connections in your system and run Check
Switch again.
•
The cables between the receiver and the farthest LNBF
may be longer than 200’ for DISH Pro or DISH Pro Plus
receivers or 150’ for Legacy receivers.
•
Make sure the cabling meets Cable Limitations on page 8.
•
The cables may not be rated for 2150 MHz.
•
Make sure all cables in the installation are rated for 2150
MHz. Run Check Switch.
•
You may have a DISH Pro Adapter installed on a DISH
Pro receiver.
•
Remove the DISH Pro Adapter. Run Check Switch.
•
You may have a switch in the system.
• Remove any switches and run Check Switch.
•
You may have a DISH Pro splitter installed.
•
Replace with a DISH Pro Plus Separator.
•
Your receiver may need a software upgrade.
•
Refer to the user’s guide that came with your receiver for
information on taking a software upgrade.
•
You have only one operating Legacy receiver connected to
the system.
•
You must have another satellite receiver connected to the
DISH Pro Plus Twin. See page 2 for details.
When you run Check Switch, you see “Satellite reception verified” but you see “Feed” instead of “DPP
Twin” identified as the device or LNBF.
Possible Reason
What to Do
•
•
The DISH Pro Plus Twin is connected but something in
the system may be blocking the switch commands.
Check the cable path between the DISH Pro Plus Twin
and the receiver and remove any devices that are not rated
for 2150 MHz and two-way, 22 KHz signals. Run Check
Switch.
When you run Check Switch, you see “DPP Twin” identified as the LNBF and Satellite shows “Conn,” but
you do not see “Satellite reception verified.”
Possible Reason
What to Do
•
The DISH Pro Plus Twin LNBF is connected but no
satellite signal is present.
•
Check the Point Dish/Signal menu to confirm that you
have satellite signal. If not, check your dish antenna to
make sure the DISH Pro Plus Twin is installed properly,
the dish is pointed for maximum signal strength, and that
there is nothing blocking the signal. Run Check Switch.
•
The cables might not be rated for 2150 MHz.
•
Make sure all of the cables in the installation are rated for
2150 MHz.
Page 18
When you run Check Switch, you see “DPP Twin” identified as the device or LNBF but you have signal
confirmed from only one satellite.
Possible Reason
What to Do
•
•
If the Check Switch Summary Screen shows “119W” on
Dish Input 2, you need to point your dish 9 degrees to the
east and repoint it for the strongest possible signal.
•
If the Check Switch Summary Screen shows “110W” on
Dish Input 1, you need to point the dish 9 degrees to the
west and repoint it for the strongest possible signal.
•
Make sure the skew setting is correct for a DISH 500
installation at your Zip Code.
•
Run Check Switch.
The DISH Pro Plus Twin LNBF is connected but the dish
may not be pointed to receive signal from both 110W and
119W satellites.
When you run Check Switch, 119W/110W satellites are detected but the third satellite from the connected
second dish is not detected.
Possible Reason
What to Do
•
Cable to the second dish is disconnected.
•
Check all the connections in your system and run Check
Switch again.
•
The third satellite is from a DISH Network bandstacked
FSS LNBF. Some older Legacy receivers cannot receive
programming from DISH Network bandstacked FSS
LNBF orbital locations.
•
