After the hurricanes, I finally have all the pieces I need to re-do my
dish.

I installed a new dish, new Superjack 24, new co-rotor II, new LNBs.
I connected all the wiring, etc.

Just before dark, I walked inside and fired up the 4DTV. Then I tried
to move the dish. Nothing happened. It kept saying that physical
limits had been reached.

Tomorrow, I am taking a TV outside with my old Toshiba. Is there
anything I can do beforehand? What have I missed? Why won't the 4DTV
move the dish?

TIA

Bob

The power wires not connected OR no power to the motor.
If the motor don't turn the sensor can't count.
The sensor wires not connected. If the motor turns and the sensor does
not count you get the error.

Go to the screen where set the limits... command the dish to move (just
a click) see if the dish moves a lil' bit if so you have the power to
the motor. Check the sensor wiring. If not check the power wiring.

Juat a quick answer fer ya :)
