HELP_Wingard 2003 automatic satellite

Help. I am parked a an RV park in the Houston area, no trees and clear sky. I have followed the steps on my satellite setup as I have countless times belore. But after the search process the search and of lights stay on and my Dish setup says no switch box detected. I called Dish and they were no help, said it was the satelitte allignment. I have run this a bunch of times and the same results. Others around me are connected to Dish no problem. I ran the check switch routine without the in cable connected as suggested in the FAQ on Winegard and then ran search again. Still nothing. I have parked here often and always have connected without a proble. Could it be the GPS?

Thanks Don

You may have a faulty Lnb. Also, if you are feeding thru a splitter, the sig will be lost.Take the tv, and receiver outside and set up the satellite directly this way. If you still do not have a signal, then replace the Lnb. I always carry a couple of spares.

After returning home I tried again to search for the Dish 110 and 119 satellites where I have hooked up before. Same results. The GPS acquisition is susessful and the On and Search lights remain on while the AS-2003 is searching for the satellites. The unit has full movement and and after a while it stops and points in the directions that it should pick up the satellites. However the Search and Off lights remain on which according to the manual error codes means that the unit failed to see the saellites. I am assuming that this could be due to a bad Lnb. I will check with Winegard on Monady and see what their take on this is.
