TracVision A9 Quick Start Guide
If you are experiencing a problem with your TracVision
system, first check the following:
Does the web interface indicate a problem?
Check the status indicators on the Home page and look
for an error message.
Can the antenna see the satellite?
The antenna needs an unobstructed view of the sky.
Common causes of blockage include trees, buildings,
bridges, mountains, and other rooftop equipment.
Severe weather can also affect reception.
Are you located within the satellite’s coverage area?
You must be located within the selected satellite’s
coverage area, and the satellite must be within the
antenna’s elevation range, to receive satellite TV
signals. Visit for details.
Is everything turned on and connected properly?
Make sure the TV-Hub and your TVs and receivers are
turned on and set up for the satellite input. Also check
the cable connections of all system components.
Is the antenna dome excessively dirty?
Wash the exterior of the dome periodically with a mild
detergent. Dirt buildup can degrade performance.
Is the software or satellite library out of date?
Check for updates at the Updates page of the web
interface and Support page of the KVH website
(, or use the Apple iOS or Android
mobile app (Internet access required to download).
