Which brand satellite dome do you prefer ?

I purchased a 2007 Lexington that had a King dome with the wired remote the previous owner never used it. I bought a new dish receiver and can't get it to find the satellite. So I am looking to buy a new dome but not sure what brand I would appreciate your input on this. Thanks, Chuck

Hello and welcome to the forum chuck .

When you say you cant get a signal leave a lot wide open.
Did you buy a dish network brand receiver ?

Did you do a scan to find satellites ?

Is the dish receiver hooked up right ?

Id like to try and get you going with what you got before you spend money on a new one.

There are a series of internal switched that program the antenna to receive either Direct TV or Dish network. First check to see the the switches are set to the receiver you're using

Are you talking about the dip switches on the dome main board?
