"The 625 is dual tuner, do both tuners have low signal? Have you connected the receiver and a TV outside at the dish?"

YES Both 110 and 119 have weak signals, 20 to 50 max DESPITE no blockage,,,,,,Despite perfect aiming and tweaking using a signal strength meter at the dish,,,,,,,,despite a new LNB,,,,,,,,new and tried different 25 ft cables from Antenna to Receiver

I can buy a new HD Receiver in the box on Flea Bay for around a hundred bucks so Ima thinkin its about time to go ahead and upgrade as my 625 is pretty olddddddddddddddd.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeBut, do BOTH TUNERShave low signal? "The Dish Network 625 satellite receiver contains 2 individual tuners in one box. These Tuners are designated TV1 and TV2."

We are currently running 722K receiver that I add the OTA tuner module. HD is nice, sometimes. When we upgraded our old Dish 500 pizza pan had to be upgraded also. Not only to add the 3rd satellite, but the switching technology had changed also. I don't know which dish you are currently using, just do some research. "Subscribers west of Chicago use Dish 1000.2 antennas aimed at the 110W, 119W, and 129W orbital locations (referred to as the western arc). Subscribers east of Chicago use Dish 1000.4 antennas aimed at the 61.5W, 72W and 77W oribital locations (referred to as the eastern arc).

If buying used from an individual do you due diligence concerning clear ownership and billing.
To appease some readers: I'm in the process of acquiring a Farmall 450 motor to drop into my M. (Tractor related:-)

On my old Dish 625 with Dish Pro and 2 Eyes LNB 500 Pizza Pan in South Central Indiana, I'm on 110 and 119 yet that's just slightly East of Chicago.

I will study before I buy a new HD 1000 series Pizza Pan with the 3 eyes to get the right one
