Hi

AFAIR one of the devices has to inject power. In most of the setups I came across it was supplied by the multi switch. There are also powered LNBs and dedicated power injectors.

If you normally have a receiver connected check its settings, it should have switch to enable or disable power.

You can read the first few pages, then about halfway down after the download/join links it says "35 pages left unread, continue reading". If you click that you can read the rest without signing up.

I'm not sure the manual helps, it doesn't seem to say you need the additional power (makes no mention of it at all), but the specs of the card could come in useful for the diagnostic process.
