Need help with Directv SWM hookup
We have a 2013 Shasta Revere 30BH. On the outside of the trailer there are two connections. Ones says satellite and one says cable.
I have a DirecTv HD Dish. This is the SWM technology that DirecTv uses.
The problem that I am having is that when I plug the coaxial cable from the satellite dish, into the input on the outside of our trailer marked satellite. When I do this and power up the SWM power supply it will not power up. The satellite outlet on the inside of the trailer that corresponds with the outside satellite input is the outlet that the powers the antennae on top of the trailer. It appears that this plug, which has a circuit board on the back of this plug, is not allowing power to pass through to the SWM Power supply. I can unplug the coaxial and the power supply will come on, plug the coaxial back up and no power to the power supply. I can turn the power on or off to this plug, which would power the antennae on top, but it doesn't make any difference to the SWM power supply, it still will not power up.
Now to throw another wrench into this problem, I can take TV and receiver to the outdoor kitchen and plug everything up and it is works great.
Does anyone have any ides how I can make the SWM receiver work inside?
