KVH Tracvision L3 RF board

Anyone know where can I get my RF board repaired for my KVH Travision L3 satellite dish? The dish stopped working properly. Having communication failure with RF board. Used flash wizard and can read main board but not the RF board. Would consider buying a compatable board if one is available.

KVH R4 or R5 PCB - RF circuit board

I called Frank and he wasn't able to help me.

Also talked with Dave at Sat2Go. He wasn't able to help me either.

Worked with tech at KVH and tried to reflash the board. Only able to get to 3% completion of installing the software. Tech aid I need to replace the board.

So, I am looking for an R4 or R5 RF board or a KVH dish that has the R4/5 RF board in it. Or if anyone knows where I can get my RF board repaired?

I just removed a R5SL in motion and its sitting in my garage. It got dated working with Dish so I went portable. I was going to trash it. Are you using your with Direct TV? I upgraded mine from a R4SL non in motion. If I recall there was a RF board and motor I had to swap in. Don't recall if I kept the R4 parts. For awhile KVH said they might be working an RF7 board for the R4/5 but that fell through. Said there wasn't enough room under the dome. I live in central PA.

I thought I sent his already. My computer shutdown.

Yes I using Directv. KVH says the dish will work for both Dish and Directv.

According to KVH the R5SL RF board will work. The R5SL will need to be reprogrammed. They said the R4 board wood work as well.

Back around 2015 Dish changed some tracking parameters. I made some changes to the RF board per a KVH bulletin. Something happened again after that. I could only track one of three satellites. KVH said I needed to upgrade to a newer system as they were not developing an RF7 board for the R4/5SL units. They offer a small trade in program. Wasn't much. That's when I bought the Winegard Pathway X2.

Your welcome to the whole unit or the RF board. I have no use for it. I couldn't locate the R4SL RF board or stepping motor from when I upgraded to R5. But the R5SL is complete and has in motion. I don't have the power switch for inside or the power cable from the switch to the dome. I cut it when removing the unit from the roof. I also left the three mounting straps on the roof so I didn't have to seal the screw holes. Let me know. The unit itself is pretty big to ship. I live at 16668.
