IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS

WARNING: TO REDUCE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK,

DO NOT EXPOSE TO RAIN OR MOISTURE.

(Not applicable to mount and antenna)

CAUTION

RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK

DO NOT OPEN

Dangerous voltage inside enclosure

Refer to operating, maintenance and safeguard literature accompanying unit.

CAUTION: TO REDUCE RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK,

DO NOT REMOVE COVER, NO USER-SERVICEABLE PARTS INSIDE.

REFER SERVICING TO QUALIFIED PERSONNEL

1.All the safety and operating instructions should be read before the appliance is operated.

2.The safety and operating instructions should be retained for future reference.

3.All warnings on the appliance and in the operating instructions should be adhered to.

4.All operating and use instructions should be followed.

5.Unplug this video or audio product from the wall outlet before cleaning. Do not use liquid cleaners or aerosol cleaners. Use a damp cloth for cleaning.

6.Do not use attachments not recommended by the video product manufacturer as they may cause hazards.

7.Do not use this video product near water - for example, near a bath tub, wash bowl, kitchen sink, or laundry tub, in a wet basement, or near a swimming pool, and the like.

8.If slots, holes and openings are located in the housing, they are provided for ventilation and to ensure reliable operation of the video product and to protect it from overheating. These openings should never be covered. The openings should never be blocked by placing the video product on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar surface. This video product should never be placed near or over a radiator or heat register. This video product should not be placed in a built-in installation such as a bookcase or rack unless proper ventilation is provided or the manufacturer's instructions have been adhered to.

9.This video product should be operated only from the type of power source indicated in electrical rating printed on the appliance or power supply.

10A. If the appliance is equipped with a polarized alternating-current line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other) this plug will fit into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact an electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

10B. If the appliance is equipped with a 3-wire grounding-type plug, a plug having a third (grounding) pin, this plug will only fit into a grounding-type power outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into the outlet, contact an electrician to replace your obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the purpose of the grounding-type plug.

11. Power-supply cord should be routed so that it is not likely to be walked on or pinched by items placed upon or against it, paying particular

attention to cord at plug, convenience receptacle and the point where cord exits from the appliance.

12. If an outside antenna or cable system is connected to this video product, be sure system is grounded so as to provide some protection against voltage surges and built-up static charges. Proper method is shown below.

any kind on the video product.

17.Do not attempt to service this video product yourself as opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.

18.Unplug this video product from the wall outlet and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:

a.When the power supply cord or plug is damaged.

b.If liquid has been spilled or objects have fallen into the video product.

c.If the video product, except for antenna mounted preamplifiers and downconverters, has been exposed to rain or water.

d.If the video product does not operate normally by following the operating instructions. Adjust only those controls, when provided, that are covered by the operating instructions. An improper adjustment of other controls may result in damage that will often require extensive work by a qualified technician to restore the video product to its normal operation.

e.If the video product has been dropped or the housing has been damaged.

f.When the video product exhibits a distinct change in performance - this indicates a need for service.

19.When replacement parts are required, be sure the service technician has used replacement parts specified by the manufacturer or have the same characteristics as the original part. Improper substitutions may result in fire, electric shock or other hazards.

20.Upon completion of any service or repairs to this video product, ask the service technician to perform safety checks to determine that the video product is in proper operating condition.

Introduction/How Does Digital Satellite TV Work?

Introduction

Congratulations! You have an RV automated digital satellite reception product — AS-2003. This unit, used with your digital satellite receiver, will deliver the best reception possible. Your new Winegard digital satellite unit was designed for easy installation, setup and operation.

How Does Digital Satellite System TV Work?

Satellite programming originates from an “uplink” facility on Earth — the facility receives many signals from different sources, combines the signals digitally and transmits to the satellites. The satellites (22,300 miles above Earth) receive the uplink signal, amplify it and then transmit it back to earth in the Ku frequency band. This signal is received by your satellite antenna whose shape reflects and concentrates the signal to the LNBF*

attached to the antenna. The LNBF is located at the “focal

point” of signal reflection, that is, the point at which the maximum amount of signal is effectively

concentrated. The LNBF amplifies and converts the signal to the 950 to 1450 MHz range. The signal is then passed through a coaxial cable to the electronics box, then to the receiver where individual channel selection and processing take place.

Your new Winegard RV Digital Satellite Unit is an easy-to-install, easy-to-use satellite TV reception system. Because it mounts on the top of your recreational vehicle, it goes where you go and provides quality reception of digital satellite signal in the continental United States only. Check with your programming provider for exact coverage area.

System Operation

BEFORE parking and leveling vehicle, look for trees, buildings, hills or mountains that might block the satellite signal and result in poor signal reception.

ABOUT YOUR RECEIVER (The unit is factory preset to find 119°W (DISH Network):

If you have a DISH NetworkTM receiver, be sure your unit (AS-2003) is set to receive DISH Network satellites. If you have a DIRECTV® receiver, be sure your unit (AS-2003) is set to receive DIRECTV satellites. (The majority of programming for DISH Network is on satellite 119°W; for DIRECTV, it is on 101°W.)

AS-2003 is factory preset to find 119°W (DISH Network). You can contact DISH Network at 1-800-333- DISH (1-800-333-3474) for programming information.

Contact DIRECTV at 1-800-DIRECTV (1-800-347-3288), or ExpressVu (Canada and Northeast U.S.) at

1-888-SKY-DISH (1-888-759-3474).

IMPORTANT! If you are using more than one receiver, the primary (the “bright white” coax connection) is the only receiver that will toggle between satellites.

FIRST TIME USE:

The unit is factory preset to find 119°W (DISH Network). For DIRECTV, you must change the preset switches on the outside unit. See Step 8 in Installation, page 14.The first time your unit is used, allow 10 minutes for GPS acquisition. (This is also true if you have stored your unit for six months or longer. This is typical of first time use; do not think there is a malfunction.

1. Turn TV on and tune to channel 3 or 4 (the output of your receiver).

2. Turn on your primary receiver. The receiver MUST

BE TURNED ON and LNBF COAX PROPERLY ATTACHED (refer to your receiver owner manual). If not properly connected, all LEDs will be on.

3. To search for satellite, see Power On and Satellite Search procedures, AS-2003 Control Panel Operation instructions, page 7.

4. After search routine is completed and primary receiver is at 119 (DISH Network), the unit may switch between the primary and alternate satellite. A Check Switch must be performed for toggling capabilities on DISH Network. See Check Switch instructions, page 8.

5. After the primary satellite signal is found and Check Switch completed, the unit may be powered off. To switch satellites, turn power back on and switch satellites. The unit can then be turned off. The satel lite signal last selected will still be “seen” by the dish when the unit is turned on again.

6. To park your unit, see Parking procedures, AS-2003

Control Panel Operation instructions, on page 7.
