Hopper Check Switch with Nuclear Option
Calling all DISH Hopper users . . .
Myself and at least one other person have experienced a problem while using the DPH42 switch with a Hopper 3. A DHP42 switch is used to connect a standard DPP (DISH Pro Plus) satellite dish like a Winegard Travler to a Hopper 3:
I use this setup in my RV. However, each time I move my RV and perform a “Check Switch” (actually called Test Installation for a Hopper), satellite 110 will be missing and I’ll get a “COM” error.
After some trial and error, I came up with a method that re-acquires the missing 110 satellite. So far it has worked every time.
Here’s the method I use . . . Hopper Check Switch (with Nuclear Option)

How do I get the eastern arc sats with the H3/42/SK-1000? In Indiana and heading further eastward for next 45 days–would like to get major channels locally in HD. Have them currently, all 3 sats have check marks, just no HD in channels under 104+/-?
I have one of the 2 globe digital LNBFs–A73006-WJ1700B08 are numbers on it.
You need a 1000.2 tripod with an Hybrid Eastern Arc LNBFs:
I have one of the EA LNBF as shown–is it possible to put this on the antenna instead of the WA LBNF?
Thank you for replying. I am not a technie by any stretch, need all the help I can get.
