Directv Receiver

Recommended Posts

Directv changed my receiver for a later version with a new card. The problem is my ant. won't point correctly. The only thing I noticed is the new receiver is a 2 prong where the old one was 3 prong. Is the ground on a 3 prong grounded to the case? I did find that running a ground from chassis ground turned the search on for the ant. but I can't get the receiver to download the signal.

You didn't indicate how old your satelite is. I had a 2003 sat and when I upgraded the receiver it would not lock in the sat. The old receiver used a seperate data line to comunicate with the sat. The new one did not. Had to upgrade the sat in order to get it to work.

An AM-21 has nothing to do with the reception of satellite TV or the operation of any satellite antenna. The AM-21 is just an add-on available for some DirecTV receivers allowing the reception of the OTA programming on that box.
