Dish Network Satellites Dishes ' What You Need To Know - Articles Surfing
When you order Dish Network service, in most cases, you do not need to know what type of Dish Network Satellites dish you actually need. The service department will know what you need based on what you ordered. The technician will typically discuss the placement of the Dish Network Satellites dish with you when they arrive to install it. It is important to note that the dish will not work just any place you decide to have it installed. An experienced installation technician will know this, and will discuss the various options with you.
First, you need to understand a little bit about how the dish works. As complicated as it all is, it is a fairly simple concept. The satellite dishes at Dish Network send out programming signals which are sent to satellites in space. Your satellite dish is pointed at those satellites that are in space, and those satellites relay the programming information from the Dish Network Satellite dishes.
The dish that is installed outside of your home works with the receiver that is installed inside your home and connected to your television set. You tell the receiver what you want to watch, by using your remote control, and the receiver notifies your dish, which notifies the satellites in space, which notifies Dish Network Satellites dishes, which notifies their receivers ' and then the process reverses, sending the signal for the requested program all the way back down the line, and making the program appear on your television screen. All of this happens in a matter of seconds.
The satellite dishes the Dish Network uses are very large ' and they are not similar to the dish that will be installed at your home. Different dishes are programmed to use different satellites for broadcasting. This is why it is important for the Dish Network service people to know what programming you have ordered ' to ensure that you get the right dish, and the right receiver.
Your Dish Network Satellites dish must have a clear line of sight. Without a clear line of sight, the dish cannot send or receive the signals that are needed for programming. Your installation technician will check for a clear line of sight, but you may be interested in the information about clear line of sight yourself. Your satellite cannot be pointed at trees, buildings, or any other obstructions. Again, it needs a clear line of sight to the satellites in space.
Once the trained technician installs your dish, you should not need to do anything else to it. However, if you live in an area where it snows, you may need to brush snow off of the dish after storms to ensure that the dish maintains a clear signal. During windy weather, your dish may move slightly. This can cause disruption in the signal, which creates 'snow' on your television, or a black screen. This means that your Dish Network Satellites dish is not getting the proper signal, and in most cases, you will need to call your local Dish Network company to have them come out and readjust your dish.
