Winegard in motion satellite

Our new satellite was receiving but quit last night and is now pointing north. Can anyone help with that? Winegard is closed until Monday.

Did you do a reset on the reciever box yet? The reciever tells the dish what to do.

X2 on resetting the receiver. We have that problem all theorize with our setup (Directv with KVH in motion antenna(R5?))

Yes, I did reset the receiver several times but it still does not receive a signal. After searching it shuts down pointing north.

Double check all coax connections? Loosen and retighten a couple times to remove oxidation that might be hindering the signal. If you have a manual antenna, try that to see if your problem is the tuner or the wineguard (the auto antenna needs the signal from the tuner to point correctly..)
