Introduction
Congratulations! You have purchased one of Winegard’s latest developments in the mobile satellite
reception product line —the Movin’ ViewTM. This
system, used with your digital satellite receiver, will
deliver the best reception possible.
How Does Digital Satellite
TV Work?
Satellite programming originates from an “uplink”
facility on Earth — the facility receives many signals
from different sources, combines the signals digitally
and transmits to the satellites. The satellites (22,300
miles above Earth) receive the uplink signal, amplify
it and then transmit it back to earth in the Ku frequency band. This signal is concentrated and reflected
to the LNBF* located at the “focal
point” of the dish. The LNBF amplifies and converts the signal to the
950 to 1450 MHz range. The signal
is then passed through a coaxial cable to the receiver where individual channel
selection and processing take place.
DISH NETWORK® - 1-800-333-DISH (1-800-333-3474)
DIRECTV® - 1-800-DIRECTV (1-800-347-3288)
EXPRESSVU® - 1-888-SKYDISH (1-888-759-3474)
Your new Winegard RV Digital Satellite System is an easyto-use satellite TV reception system. Because it mounts on
the top of your recreational vehicle, it goes where you go
and provides quality reception of digital satellite signals.
Check with your program provider for exact coverage area.
MV3500A features:
• Easy “one-button” operation
• Compatible with most digital satellite receivers
• Ability to toggle between satellites using remote control, if subscribing to multisatellite programming
• Wired for use with the Winegard HD Satellite
Interface (sold separately, Model WB-2000).
• Winegard warranty

BACK OF VEHICLE
Operation (Vehicle MUST be stationary!!)
1. Turn on receiver and television set. The MV3500A
must be connected to a receiver that is plugged
into 120 VAC.
2. Verify that you are getting the receiver’s menu
screens on the television. These screens are available
with or without the dish finding the signal.
3. Turn the power switch on for the MV3500A. The
dish will detect if it is already on a satellite signal. If
it detects a signal, the dish will move to check its alternate satellite and then move back to the original
satellite signal that it was on.
4. If no signal was detected, the dish will begin its
search to locate the primary satellite. Once the dish
locates a signal, it will pause long enough to identify
which satellite it has located. This may or may not be
visible on your receiver’s point dish screen.
5. After the unit has verified that it has the correct satellite,
it will move to check the alternate satellite and move back
to the primary satellite to complete the search routine.
6. If you do not have signal, see Troubleshooting, p.11.
NOTE: Because the MV3500A uses information from
the last location that it was on a signal, satellite acquisition may take longer if the dish is inactive over long
distance traveling.
DirecTV must be set to the “two” satellite, oval dish
setting. Refer to your receiver manual.
DISH Network receivers must have the check switch
set for “SW42”. See page 4.
3
To toggle between satellites when subscribing to multi-satellite programming—
The MV3500A will toggle between the primary
and seconday satellites for either DISH Network
or DIRECTV. Both have programming on more
than one satelite. When a channel is selected on
the remote control and is not on the satellite currently selected, the unit will automatically toggle
to the correct satellite.
5. Your system is now set up to toggle between
satellites. It will automatically move to the correct
satellite when a channel is selected with your remote control.
NOTE: Once these steps are completed, you
won’t have to perform this test again, unless
Check Switch was performed on another satellite dish, such as a home dish.
DIRECTV programming
1. DIRECTV receivers must be set for oval dish 2
sat selection to enable toggling between primary
101°W satellite and alternate 119°W satellite
only. (Consult receiver manual for procedure.)
After receiver is set for the correct dish selection,
when you request a channel located on a different
satellite, the unit will automatically toggle to that
satellite.
!
Toggle: Your Winegard automatic
satellite dish will move from the
primary to the alternate satellite
in order to receive multi-satellite
programming.
DISH Network programming (DISH 500)
DISH Network receivers must have the “SW42”
switch installed in order to toggle between the primary 119° satellite and the alternate 110° satellite.
(Consult your receiver manual for the procedure
to reach the “check switch” menu.)
Install Summary
SW42
Input:
To install the “SW42” switch:
1. Before turning on your MV3500A system, make
sure that your satellite receiver and television are
turned on and your receiver is on the “point dish”
menu. (Consult your owner’s manual to reach this
menu.)
2. Turn on the MV3500A system and wait for signal acquisition on satellite 119°.
3. After signal is acquired, you have 6 minutes to
complete Check Switch test. Consult your receiver manual for instructions on running this test. Be
sure that Superdish and Alternate are unchecked
if applicable. Onscreen options may vary by receiver.

Troubleshooting
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
The MV3500A does not attempt to find a satellite or
it never moves.
1. Check your Power switch to verify that it is in the ON position.
The dish never stops on any of the signals that
it sees.
1. Make sure that your receiver is set up correctly.
For DirecTV the receiver should be set for a Two Satellite Oval
Dish.
With DIRECTV, the dish will find the alternate
satellite but it never finds the primary satellite.
I am not getting all the DISH Network channels
I subscribed to.
The MV3500A never sees any signals, it just keeps
searching.
2. Check +12 V wires at unit to verify power. Check fuse on
electronics.
For DISH Network, the check switch should read either “Unknown”
or “SW42”.
Make sure that the Switches on the Electronics Control Box are
set for DirecTV. See page 3. These switches are found under the
dome, inside the Electronics Control Box.
1. Go to the check switch menu in receiver. Make sure that it’s set
for SW42 and lists both even and odd transponders on satellites
110° and 119°.
1. Rain, Snow or excessive Dew on the dome can interrupt the
signal. Snow and Dew can be brushed off the dome. If Heavy rain
or Snow fall is blocking the signal, it may be necessary to wait
until the weather clears.
2. Check to see if the Southern sky is clear. Trees, Buildings,
Large signs or an Overpass can block the signal. Find an area
where you can be sure that this is not the problem and try again.
3. Make sure the receiver has power and the satellite dish is connected to the “Sat In”.
